330 ألف متر مكعب كونكريت و54 مصعداً لنقل السكان
برج دبي ... وزنه نصف مليون طن ويتحمل زلزالاً بقوة 7 درجات ورياحاً سرعتها 200 كيلومتر بالساعة

330 thousand cubic meters and 54 lefts to transfer the people.
Burj Dubai ... It weighed half a million tons and bears strong earthquake of 7 degrees and wind gusts of 200 kilometres per hour .

As the tower becomes thinner going up i expect a rush to the sky when they reached a hundred floors.

Thanks for the Photo's Krazy. I love the 2nd one. I counted 54 floors. I like the photo because you can see the whole Tower and everything that's going on at the base. This will be the most famous Tower in the world when it's done.
