To give you an overview.

perspective is a bit wrong, so not everything is 100% correct.

WOW, I knew it!!! the floor plates "do" have circular lips along the outside of the facade!! I had a feeling all along that those were whats going to give the tower the look of the circular lips along the facade!!

those close up pics are spectacular!! they really open up a lot of details!!

btw the map is not 100% correct above, but is not easy to name the exact locations of everything ,it is such a mess.
BD Lake Hotel should be more left, the old town island is in fact bigger, etc.

I dont think that the tower was that thin, even without the noses!


I can really start to picture this in my head now, now that the close ups are shown with the circular floor plates that are rising above the lobby level.. the circular lips are going to be bigger; much more prominent than I thought and should make it look unique as it starts to rise more and cladding is installed.

How long do you think it would be it one were to measure from the end of one of the circular lips to the other end? I'm thinking about 35-40 feet when going around the lip and about 25-30 feet going in between the separator walls between the lips, or the "towers" as other people have called it on here..

Is this a NEW BURJ DUBAI RENDERING? This was found from Emaar document dated 15-Dec-2005.

Could this be 1000m version?

Renders are from different sides of building! Remember that there are 3 wings.

I think that RIGHT side/wing from "old render" is same wing as LEFT side wing from "new render"
(that what you can barely see, not the wing which is almost at the center)


and smaller version, better to compare if you use smaller screen resolution

Hmm, definitely looks taller. Now I know what Adrian Smith meant when he wanted it to have an acceleration effect.

I prefer the normal one actually. It's much more graceful looking

Please no more discussions about the final height, at least not until another one year!
