that is less than 1km, but of course, the model is not correct.


anyway you might wanna watch this video shot by an american who was in dubai in april 2006, it does not feature burj dubai but still it is quite interesting and u might find it useful, some people might get rid of their prejudices.

Imagery is ok, but turn off the sound his voice is so annoying. I'd rank him second to Gilbert Godfried. Also, I don't know why he would bother ranting about how rich Dubai is for 15 minutes straight, I think we get the point.

Then again he has images of the rooms inside the Burj al Arab :O . . . Fast forward through the movie with sound OFF as there's nothing worthy he has to say that isn't already obvious.

-- back to the topic:

Oh god that lighting on the model is so SEXY.

It looks like a sci fi movie on this rendering, but when you see it in reality at daytime I think it will look pretty normal, like a cool city skyline.

For example Burj Dubai looks very realistic compared to the renderings. However, the final height and the exterior might make it look unreal.

fantastic malec. really gives a perspective where certain towers are located. be good to have colour code like-red =uc or white =proposed,grey=approved,beige=existing.
good stuff.
