Hi all.

- Looks like it Helghast - really makes a difference.

Nice shot OTR. The crane is now down near the bottom of tier 19 - a couple of crane mast sections lower than the 8th.

When I'm reading the forums about the kingdom tower the Nakheel tower and the Burj Dubai, I can't stop thinking of the Tower of Babel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_of_babel this was build also in the middel east. maybe some theme for the nexst tallest . ( by the way I'm not religous, so no neet the start a off topic on biblical myths)

wow....But honestly I can't feel how tall it is...
It is about 250m taller than the CN tower, so... I guess it's really tall.
I hope to be there someday to see the miracle of desert in person.

Hi all.

Hey 234 great shots. We can see all of the top terraces have the cladding installation rails in place. I know some have been ready for some time now but surely we will see some cladding from tier 23 down soon.

234 you need to set up the date on your camera. No biggie - just an observation.

Religious or not......might want to be sensitive to those of us that are. Careful about calling events in the Bible "myths" Thanks.

I always tend to take photos then upload them on the same day. but your right about the date, its wrong, after today just check the tinypic site.
