Good to see it finally finished. Been watching this thread for bout a year now and the last part of construction seemed to drag like hell (although I'm an inexperienced eye so probably don't appreciate the small things as much).

Sheikh Khalifa is the Ruler of Abu Dhabi and President of the United Arab Emirates (of which Dubai is part);
Sheikh Mohammed is the Ruler of Dubai and Vice-President of the UAE;

That's how it works on country of Monarchy. And that's how people appreciate their rulers. Just like how Britons praise their Queen. However, changing the name of Burj Dubai to Burj Khalifa is over appreciate. Now, I know the real ruler of UAE or Abu Dhabi. For a long time, all I know is Al Mahktoum (forgive me if mispelled) but now I know who's the bigger ruler of UAE.

Btw, Briton's don't praise their queen that much, mainly just Americans Unfortunately, we have to put up with looking at her noggin on all the coins and stamps.

I never see european monarchies using portraits on streets like arabs monarchies do. To take an example, until now I never see Queen Elisabeth II portrait with The Shard in London's streets or the king of Sweden with the Turning Torso in every cities of Sweden like I saw in Dubai, Burj's portraits with both rulers.
