maybe it's my inquisitive mind... i just require a bit more substantial evidence than that. not that im looking for a reason to doubt it's structural soundness, i would just like to know; for instance what would happen if a large blast occured inthe car park?

I'm not sure what you're getting at. A terrorist attack like the 1993 bombing of WTC? If so remember that this building is for the super-rich and I don't know if your average terrorist would be able to get in.

If its something else, like some freak case where a car just blows up randomly, well first I doubt that would happen and second I'm sure SOM and all the other well established firms designing and constructing this tower have some safety procedures set up already.

First of all I don't see why there will be a difference if the parking is over or underground. In contrary a undergroung blast might be even more dangerous, due to closure.

Second, I think why they are doing this, might be becouse the approximity to the water and possible high water table on the site. Becouse of this reasons most of Dubai's skyscrapers have overground parking too, either integrated in the base of the buildind or in a separate structure behind them. It saves alot of dos going this way.

Don't worry about Dubai when building the Trump Tower, b/c it won't be looked as being better than Chicago just b/c the BD surpasses the Sears Tower.

Of course it will, it is one of 19 or so project names that Nakheel secured from the deal with Trump Org. I wouldn't be surprised if Al Burj turns out to be it.
