Hi Nezzy.

It's my understanding that the Burj uses 192 skin friction piles. The piles don't go down to bedrock - must be too far down to reach.

None of those cities have a structure that's more than twice as tall as every other structure in the city.

That's a very cool looking picture but kinda weird with construction lights. I wonder what they'll look like with the softer lights you'll see once the windows are installed and the owners/tenants move in.
