What an awe-inspiring feeling it would be to stand in the centre of the towers..

But just to get things straight, dose this count as 4 supertalls? or just the one?
Since they are connected at the base and roof, dose this just count as one structure?

With those (somewhat) classical and smaller buildings around it the Pearl looks even bigger, what a monster!

Size-wise you can almost imagine it as four Indexes in a cluster with a fifth Index stacked on top.

Raft pouring complete at Dubai Pearl's Tower 2

By

Staff Writer on Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Pearl Dubai, developers of Dubai Pearl, yesterday announced the completion of concrete raft pouring at the development's Tower 2 (North Tower).

This marks Dubai Pearl's achievement of a key construction milestone with the installation of three of the Middle East's largest rafts on towers 1, 2 and 3, it said.

Al Habtoor Leighton, contractors for the project, utilised a 300-plus workforce in each work shift over two working days to deliver the 11,000 cubic metres raft. Ten pumps and 1,200 truckloads of concrete reinforcements were poured into the 8.07 metres excavation.

Installation of the three rafts will allow commencement of works on the super structure for towers 1 and 2 over the next few days.

About 44,000 cubic meters of concrete will be poured into the foundation of the four-tower project, in addition to utilising more than 10,000 tonnes of steel reinforcements on the towers. Located opposite The Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Pearl is a major mixed-use development and will also feature a 1,800-seater performing arts theatre.
