But it's funded by Arabs, without them there'd be no tower.
Also don't forget the south koreans

Do you consider the computer you are using to type this post YOURS or Canada's?
Do you consider the TV you watch yours?

I never heard canadians built computer components or tvs.

according to your statement, it doesn't belong to you.
You didn't build it.

It's the fact that you paid for it makes it yours. Same with BD, the camel jockeys paid for it to be built on their soil, thus, making it theirs! Enough said.

BTW, have you ever heard of Emaar Properties?

Hi all.

Here is a shot of part of the revised construction schedule.
shows Aug 15 2009 for completion of the whole project.



Here is a summary progress chart from April 30 2007.
The total project is 25.25 % behind. The office and Pool annexes are way behind.



The question is - did they revise the completion date before or after April 30 ? If it was after, completion could be much later than Aug 2009. Bloody interesting stuff.

All this stuff is ILLEGAL.

Why on Earth are there forum rules that don't allow posting swear words, trolling, or whatever else and illegally obtained info is okay?

I think the administrators know that Skytower's story about hacking into Emaar's server is a bunch of BS. If it were true, they would be facing liability for allowing him to continue posting it here.

The Dubai Mean sea level is +3.44m and the Dubai Municipality Level is +1.31m, those figure will be the same for both Burj Dubai and the Dancing Towers plot.

Yes, 40mm is a very small settlement for a build of this size

Also, +1.31m is also the datum for Al Burj
The tower has no cellar? and it's just 4cm deep? without stabilization in the ground?
