The 'gardens' of the Burj Dubai seem pretty amazing too, however I don't expect them to be like the model.

Looks pretty damn close to the current model...however the landscaping contract has only just been issued....(remedial work starts September) which is when the flood gates are due to opened for the lake...if all goes to plan (which it rarely does)

The bigger of the two is the office annex building (with underground parking) and the other (smaller one) is the swimming pool complex which are both connected by the underground mall axcess hub.

Glas is meant to be seen through not act like a wall and that is why we see in the nightshot off Gobot (Thanks man!!).

So it isnt sad but it makes everything more magical!!!

Damn man i was realy used to a sexy nude Arabian "princess"

agree. but it depends on the types and usage of the building. for 6 stars hotels and appartments you want privacy aight? you want to see thru it from the inside but as much as possible you dont want to be seen from outside. the reason why you see thru it from the outside now is becoz its not yet completed. wait till they have the festive lighting and laser lights on each tier. the building will be illuminated thus you can see the beauty of the cladding even at night.

Darn it, you beat me to the last post, haha!

Well to be on topic, what a ride it's been! Thanks to Sky Tower, Imre, and everyone else for providing the awesome updates that has kept many of us here watching the tower develop day by day / week by week. Time for another great thread which, through its duration, will see this amazing tower (most likely) break the remaining height records known to man and enter the record books numerous times.

The party's only just begun!...
