what looks cheap about it? it looks great to me, they're using high quality material. The glass does have some sort of reflective coating on it. Comon bro you think that they would just put any old glass on the world tallest building, or not do any efficiency research or mock ups before cladding the building?

The interior pictures are really impressive. It'd be so scared stood at the edge of level 76 with just a small barrier between me and a 300m drop.

So there's no third crane for the top part instead of these two, as I had expected from Culwullas diagrams ... but that makes things a lot easier of course.

When is the second crane ready to leave? Maybe the persistent one could finish the residual concrete work on either side.

I mentioned this a few days back. They were dismantling the lower part of the crane and having its base at this level. If someone can take a new picture, you will see this crane chopped at this level.

I like how the super tower compares the others in the diagram, it has a totally different design and it's not so square.

Is it my imagination or does Burj look a little short in this pic. Maybe by about 50m?

The freedom tower is so tiny 2.6 million square feet of office space sounds like a lot but compare that to the old towers each of wich had 3.8 million square feet of space and probaly cost less!!
The empire state building has more floor space than the freedom tower
