All these updates are amazing. Once the BD Podium is finished they will likely get started with the glass. That's my guess, and look at the size of that Mall. It will be a great place to hang out on a really hot day.

These last few updates are absolutely stunning. I love the extensive use of concrete in Burj Dubai and the surrounding buildings. Concrete is the way to go.

In Dubai are sand storms very common? Has it been so bad as to where construction had to come to a hault?

Burj Dubai is poised to be a global icon

Burj Dubai, the iconic super tower developed by Emaar Properties at the epicenter of its Downtown Burj Dubai, scaled 70 levels today.


Level seventy and climbing

Anchoring the 500-acre AED 73 billion (US$20 billion) mixed-use development, the super tower is billed to be the world's tallest when completed on schedule in 2008.

The AED 3.673 billion (US$1 billion) Burj Dubai blends retail, commercial and residential spaces, and is a pioneering example of Dubai's entrepreneurial vision, architectural capabilities and engineering prowess.

Burj Dubai is adding a new level every three days. Over 3,000 workers are working on-site. More than 200,000m³ (cubic metres) of high-quality concrete and 38,000 metric tons of steel rebar have been used so far in the construction.

Designed by Chicago-based Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), Burj Dubai is being constructed by South Korea's high-rise construction experts Samsung Corporation, and Turner Construction International is the project and construction manager.

'Burj Dubai is poised to become a global icon and engineering marvel, as it sets a new benchmark for architectural design. Drawing on inspiration from the hymenocalis, a desert flower, and patterning systems embodied in Islamic architecture, Burj Dubai will be elegant in stature and dynamic in function,' said Emaar Properties Chairman Mr Mohamed Ali Alabbar.

Ongoing projects within Downtown Burj Dubai include The Old Town and Old Town Island, The Dubai Mall, Burj Dubai Business Hub, The Lofts, Burj Views, South Ridge, Burj Dubai Boulevard, The Residences and 8 Boulevard Walk. The development will be self-sustaining with a 24-hour lifestyle and a buzz that percolates right through the residential, retail, business, entertainment, leisure and dining facilities.
