i was reading my book today and i came across something i didnt see before.
it said the focus on the height was such that at one point, smith says, he and Robert booth, executive director of EMAAR, Alabbar's company, discussed the possibility of a hydraulically controlled spire that could be raised in case some other developer decided to, well, trump Alabbar with a taller building. wouldnt that be cool to have a hydraulically controlled spire but what they didnt think of was, once its T/O the CTBUH would only count what was the originally offical height. so i would say it would be pointless to have a hydraulically controlled spire.

Hi all.

Good thought Helghast. That must be where many reporters got confused with a telescopic pinnacle verses a jacked into position pinnacle.

I labelled 2 shots to illustrate the small wings of tiers 22 and 23. The shots are from Imre and AltinD who both continue to update us with great pics.

I didn't label the larger wing of tier 23 or the larger wing of tier 22 that is already erected.

The top 9.6m. of tier 22 half wings is up there now. Once they erect the 2 sections left of the second larger wing of tier 22 and the bottom half of the half wings, there is only cladding and roofing (of the terraces) left to do.

Once that is done the crane disassembly proceedure can commence.





I've said it before and I'll say it again - what a fantastic structure !

I have many more pics, will post them tomorrow (well it will be today actually, but since I'm going to sleep now, I'm allowed to say that)

On a second thought, here's another one
