I think that he had in mind the left side of the front core wall, the L144 core setback.

Oh shoot ! I didn't think it would come so quick (after only 5 levels). Still, heh, that was the plan (I think I still hoped they would secretly plan 10-12 stories between these setbacks too).

BTW Imre: some new trips to al burj preparation works planned ?
(although its future as WTB seems in question - I really like the Al Burj shape and simplicity. Would it even be 'only' 800m )

Nice video, Henrik. Thanks.

But man, that guy comes across as such an ass. And he yells everything he says. Great shots of the Dubai skyline at the beginning.

Yeah I agree. It just goes to show how different the American mentality is. I dont want to start an anti-american debate here. Its different, and its good and bad. But yeah. I thought the video was fairly cool and it highlights just how insane you must be to work as a construction worker on the project during the day! Far out!

Hi all.
Just finished watching the Really Big Things episode on the Burj.
Eggggselent. . Thanx Vanhenrik for giving a link where it can be downloaded and saved - no torrent and no you tube where we can't save it.

I wonder if anyone watched the National Geographic episode I was hearing about. Perhaps it can be put to a place like filefront as well.

Also the other Discovery channel show with a Burj episode coming up - Build it Bigger.

Great time for us Burj lovers - and skyscraper lovers in general.
