I hope they make mini replicas of this tower that are bottle openers. That would be the shit.

It has been said that the Burj Dubai will have lifts with number pads

If they make a mini SWFC bottle opener souveneir, I would so buy it!! And I dont even drink beer. I could see them selling these in the gift store at the base of the tower!

I agree Cul, just like the Taipei 101 its just 101 floors but look where its at compared to level of BD. They must have floors that are 1.5 times the height of floor on BD....go figure......

What I love best about the SWFC apart from the ultra sleeky design and marvelous architecture is that it's not a one-of-the-world's-tallest pretending to be one, it truly deserves being called one because it did not rely on deceitful spires to increase its height. I hate spires, it's just plain cheating.
