Burj time-lapse video.

Sorry about all of the steps you have to go through to download it. If anyone knows a better file-hosting site, let me know.



Edit: oops.

at what height will the roof (not pinnacle) be? or rather the highest roof part/outside terrace that you can safely stand on before you have to climb the outside of the spire? i think that will be the top of tier 22 or 720m? i'm curious how high it is possible to go before you have to be a professional mountain climber to ascend any higher.

Hi all.

Thanx for all the kind words for my analysis, I put alot of time into it. Let me repeat that I extrapolated the level heights, pour times, and pour steps for tiers 10 to 13. I looked at alot of pics and by using the source info I am sure the info is pretty close. If and when we get the actual info for those tiers I will revise the analysis accordingly.

Thanx Imre for your update - great shots as always. 7700 pics of this wonderful structure so far and the biggest percentage of any photog by far is from you. Many thanx.

Deep Sea Building. There is stairs outside the circular pinnacle to the roof of every tier to at least tier 23 and probably tier 24. ( I only have prints showing stairs to tier 23 ) There is also a ladder inside the pinnacle that starts on tier 20 and has a hatch to every tier roof right to tier 27 start at 768.1 meters.



This ladder continues to the top with a hatch to a platform at the top of the structure.



Man would I love to go up there and check out the view !

Thanx Mr Alloy for the timelapse - nice job. Added it to my database.

Lastly...
MettaliTool. Please accept my appologies for my outburst a few days ago. I was outa line.

Have a good day all.
