Those pictures look great. Wonderful another documental of Burj Dubai, but it is a shame that I've not seen the first one, because I have Latin America Discovery and I don't think the will pass the second in Latin America as the 1st one.

There must be a mistake? Level 134 was 484.1 so level 135 was 488.1 Levels 136, 137, 138 are plant levels but all together only 498.2 ?? Should be higher...

#the sock- are just spamming or do you really want to know? Burj Dubais ob deck will be lev124 or 442m high. CN Towers main deck is 350m but has a small space pod at 447m high, so yes its 5m higher.
cheers
interesting to know
the levels up the lev124 are apartments? So there is only private decks higher than the observ deck?

Above the observation deck will be boutique offices. The top one on the 155th floor which will be also the last occupied floor (if plans haven't changed and they'll pump concrete higher then 585.70 m), will be the private office of EMAAR's Chairman.

The Chaiman of PETRONAS also has his office on the top floor of Petronas Tower 1
