Cheers mister Solt
Thanks,

This is difficult , if I get permission I will go there, which is almost impossible

I would do this , there is some places when no security but I dont want to do anything illegal...

Question

The burj dubai still looks to me like it could go well over 818 metres, is that still possible?

My best guess of how far to go. If BD ends up being 818m that is.



I hope this is OK with the new rules.

Cant imagine how thin it will be at that height.... mh dont know. Cant follow most peoples enthusiasm here.
They could stop right now and it would not be any less impressive as if they but some 200 meter spaghetti-thin spire on top.

He is referring to the 818m plan.



But I will still keep my finger cross, my estimate would be coming close to 900m

Viewing the height that the Burj Dubai should reach, I can't imagine how this building will reach this height. We need to see a little more of progress.

When will start the steel section? In one month, two, three weeks?

next 7 floors= 45m ? From 579 to 624?, Will be there one tall mechanical floor?

7 floors = +- 20 or 25 m. I think that the final hight will be a little bit over 900 m, 810 is so notorious.

Yeah, and construction started on Al Burj several months ago on a plot in the Waterfront, if we are going to go with that source.

If the still rise this building to 200 more meters the observation deck will only be able to hold 2 or 3 people lol. Then imagine the price.

What's there to imagine? There's a ton of renders floating around that we've all seen.
