from the schedule it appears the spire should be jacked up to the final hight in September, 2008. Appearently the touch screen controls the lighting "can activate up to 200 pre-programmed by simple touch button.." !!! not to mension the purchase of over 7million AED of lighting equiptment. In particular the near $300,000 Diablo !!7KW!! moving search light, Thats like $90,000US for one huge light, and they got 6 of 'em!

EDIT: check spiral notches, never seen that before, to blurry to see hight if it is even on here.
EDIT2: tinkering with contrast the second "bouble" down says "TIER 30"

the only thing that makes me angry is the fact that real estate agents like alineah.com are selling floors that do not exist. According to their website BD has at least 200 Floors

They may say whatever they want but unless they are selling any floor higher up then the 156th, I don't see much of a problem.

AltinD is right, this is just a plain marketing technique to attract people..

Like "Burj Al Arab is just a walking distance away ... "


... yeah a 8 - 10 km one.


Edit: Marketing for another tower, not BD.

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to understand what the building is going to have above floor 156. Is it going to be one huge spire, inaccessible from inside, or will there be spaces there that can be accessed and if so, what will they be used for?

If the Burj Dubai wants to be the tallest structure ever build, the building must be over 646,38m tall.
