I wouldn't blame all the double posts on the people, this website is kinda dodgy recently and is confusing to know whether comment has been posted or not.

Dont forget there have been like 8 Burj Dubai Threads so far... after a specific number of posts a new one was opened.

Thanks for the updates on the finishing touches of the foundation.

If after 536 ( divide by 2)posts you still cant use a gd site, then please throw away your computer away. There is nothing hard in using this site.

this isn't a building. as far as i can tell, it's still a hole in the ground.

nice units though....hardly any redundant circulation.

whatever....and diesel jeans are 150 dollars worth more than levi's.

Many of those old Burj Dubai threads were closed with only like 500 posts in them. It might be interesting to add up all the posts from the individual threads and see how many were posted before the foundations were complete and then compare.

If in 275 posts you still can't employ proper English grammar and sentence structure, then please stop criticizing others.

What an excellent view one must get from those houses!! Although to some, having a massive construction site next door is detrimental, I'd gladly move in.

I'm fine thanks. just annoying to see you come in these forums and bash every beautiful building that is being built in chicago. you are entitled to your opinion, sure, but you're annoying. you dont belong in chicago, you would be much happier in nebraska.
