At first, I planed to go to Dubai on my summer vacation this year, but now, after seeing these pictures, I will wait for one year or two till this project is finished.
I want to c live how it looks like when it's done

Burj Dubai kick them all away

Imagine how it will be to stand in front of it and looking up and how difficult it will be to take pics of the whole tower. On the previous pages of this thread i saw a pic of a model and count something about 200 Storeys.Is this possible? When so it will be taller than 800m. And about which height range are the speculations now? 800-900?

I keep having this problem,it gets worse though, by the time this is finished, projects like the waterfront will be in full swing, and then ill want to wait till they're done before i go. I may never make it if they keep announcing such incredible projects.

I want to go to Dubai when the Burj Dubai is still under construction but over 500m. You can visit the completed Burj Dubai your entire life but a u/c Burj Dubai not...

Excellent work malec -- a labor of love appreciated by all.

Do you think the billionaires financing the buildings in Dubai refer to them as "stuff"?

That sounds like a wise decision. Who knows...there may be that many new towers under construction by then

It will be interesting to see how the occupancy rates for those residential and office units turn out when they are completed. Hope this mega project won't cause in an over supply.
