Yay! The video was great. A little dramatic, but that's TV for you.

I wish they'd do another one now or even in a few months, especially now that the cladding's going on.

Hi all.

Discovery is going to show a second documentary on the Burj in their "Build it Bigger" series. The series starts this month in the US. Probably in the fall here in Canada.

Anyone into the movie "The Towering Inferno", ( one of the things that got me into skyscrapers ) here is the best collection of pics and info I have found on the net. The tower in the movie was 138 levels just like the Burj is now. Many excelent pics of Chicago, Sears Tower, and the Chicago Spire as well. Just have to look around the folders. Thanx Ryan.

Picasa - Michelle - 07 06 15:

















Enjoy

No, it's common knowledge that the Chicago based company Skidmore, Owings and Merrill designed it.
