Why balconies are against the wall, not the balcony door or so? Are they planing to place additional layers of concrete between those 'balconies'? later?
I just don't get something here

Indeed... and we're happy for you and your perfect combination of enjoyment and doing a good job, Imre.

As for Latifa: what a large footprint! The building is as long as HHHR Tower, but much wider. And construction is still moving steadily: two new floors since Nov 03 and lv40 almost done, I think.

Oh - the design has been simplified and shortened. Already at lv40 in December, Latifa won't go that much further.
Guess this one won't top out at +200m and will belong to the "highrise" category only.

The height reducing was a fatal mistake, this building is so massive that it needs height to get a good heght width ratio.With only 41 floors it will look to bold and massive for my taste, and will badly influence HHHR towers impact on the skyline.

Agree - most likely Latifa Tower will look rather fat from all angles.

Don't think so. I guess Latifa will be almost hidden on most Sheikh Zayed Road panoramas, while HHHR Tower is tall enough to stick out.

So this is going to be the final height, as seen on Imre's picture? That would suck..

To keep the running gag here: some new clothes for Latifa, the fat lady,
that is still not full-grown but won't make it to model size anyhow...

In other words: cladding progress here, still not t/o, but will most likely end as "highrise",
not as +200m - "skyscraper". And there are better towers around...

[Off-topic]
...like the twins JAL Hotel (270 m / 60 fl) and Nassima Tower (approx. 200 m / 55 fl) down the road:
what a shame we didn't open a thread here for them. These buidlings are unique!
Now as they're almost done, it's too late, I guess.
But as an appreciation, some pics from Imre's latest set:

Here's a little comeback for Latifa... she's still in the dressing roomm, wearing a dress with bare shoulders ...means progress is rather slow.
The tower could be t/o, but I'm not sure, especially whith that lone wall on top of the right part.

Picture is part of a great gigapan from Red by Gerald, and I took snapshots.
