These are the floors immediately above the first mech level (see 2nd photo in earlier post - you can clearly see the section with all the lights on)

They don't look quite so complete when you zoom in though...

Actually that's not true, unless you are standing just opposite to the line you are looking at.

For example if you stand in front of a building and look upward you will see its sides converging.

HAH the last panel could be as well put in the upcoming week! Now the top of the building is really adorable, just erase those cranes. And clean it up!

Dubai is simply one of the coolest cities on the planet architecturally speaking.

Hi all.

Nice updates Gerald and Imre - and nice pic PG.

We can see section 23B is only 3 panels away from being fully clad now. That "last cladding panel" was labelled for that section. It is one of the 14 panels on the larger wing. So the "last cladding panel" will be installed before many others below it. I know ... - they meant the last to be manufactured, not installed.

When I say many others it is just a figure of speech. There is only part of level 158, part of section 20B, part of level 155 to section 19B where the crane was, and the odd panel here and there. Level 158 may have to wait untill the crane on 159 terrace is removed.

Cladding is almost complete.

Ok. As i see it, Dubai seems like the archetects of the world's playground or sandlot. Its amazingly fast growth reminds me of what was one of my favorite games: sim city
