why does it always wrotes about high "with antena"? that is not part of contruction??!
Bilding is about 650m high and thatīs it. Antenna can be changed any time and building can be suddenly higher with new antena...

Its not an antenna, its a spire!!! And as a spire is part of the building. Spires count, antennas don`t.

Is cladding normally done slowly or is it just me who thinks its a bit slow.

Maybe my expectation were just high.

What a view. Going up the Burj Dubai once it's complete will definately not be for the faint hearted.
Could someone please tell me what the building is with the red arrow pointing at it and is there a thread for it?
Cheers.
