Those photos (in previous page) are renderings, models not real photos... the truth is that interior photos we going to see here in the next few weeks, months and that will be more great than any interior rendering photo.

Question - Post 17988 - 43rd level

Please see first picture of post 17988 - the 43rd level elevator skylobby.

Within the picture, it appears there are 4 elevators. According to the plan shown at the end of the same post, 6 elevators are in a row in the lobby at ground floor level. Three go to 43rd level, the other three - go to the other skylobby on 76th level. This can be seen in various plans on Fury's diagrams.

Assuming that these are express lifts to the skylobbies for the residential areas, I thought they would not stop anywhere else, thus, I had expected to see there would be three lifts opening up on the 43rd level.

Do the 76th floor lifts stop at 43, or did I assume something incorrectly ?

Thank you

Great photos Desert River! Is it just me or have they cleaned the windows of the podium and Armani Hotel floors? Just looks a lot shinier below the first set of Mechanical Floors...

Can someone please tell me how tall the Old Town Island buildings are in this picture:
Just curious to know if the fountain hit 150m yet, anyone know?
I would have thought they only reached maybe 50-60m max. judging by these and other photos/videos.

Question for Desert Diver, et al...Green H2O

Desert Diver,
That pix that you captioned 'the lake is looking like a natural pond' has very green looking water. Is the color in the photo accurate as far as what you see when you are there?

I've been noticing in some of the other day and night shots the greenish water.

Is that the mother of all algae blooms going on now?

That could prove industrial strength nasty if it really takes off. It's tough with even our 15K gallon pool in Arizona - no fun. For something that big - yikes.

I can't remember reading about any sort of filtration and chlorination system for all of that water...and you can still see the sand and dirt sediment load on the bottom and how it is building up inside the fountain nozzles.

Now that the the whole feature is finishing up it sure would have been nice if they would have used paint sprayers to feather a soft edge between those two colors of paint on the bottom...that could have made all the difference and increased an illusion of a deeper middle, etc., especially at night.

Even if there will be any, why a swimming pool on some guy's terrace would be open to the public?



... unless he'd be doing a pool party and you'd be one of the invitees.
