That's a hotel tower attached to the mall. I think officially it's called "Burj Dubai Mall Tower" or something close to that.

Edit: I was wrong on the name. It's called Dubai Mall Hotel. Here's the thread:

Hey Imike, BTW means by the way.

Saw the documentary on the SWFC and I didnt know that the glass panels (cladding) isnt actually screwed onto the building, they just hang there using hooks but are free to move. And when it was explained why (building movement) it made sense.

Is this a common way of cladding and is this how they are doing it on the BD ?

Also interested to hear an answer to Imikes question about the top 30 floors not being occupied.

Cheers

it's interesting how the cladding on the night shots looks almost transparent.....which leads me to believe the finished building will look very similar at night to what it looks like in those pics.

thanks Wikidboo,\


Here's my question again.

Thanks Cullwulla, but isn't 30 floors of unhabitable space alot? I mean this isn't NORAD that they need so much room for mechanical and communications. also, won't be there 5 so called mechanical floors for all of that equipment before the concrete level is topped out. Why not add offices in the steel structure. Concrete pumping up that high is understandable but having actuall offices/residential space in the steel frame doesn't defy the laws of physics.

so let me get this straight.. even though the building could have 160 something floors plus 30 something floors for the steel structure. It won't be officially be referred to as a 190 story building. it will only be recognized as having 160 something floors to the concrete level?
