Thed nice thing is that the road next to the Burj (Sheikh Zayed Road) is most of the time congested and accidents there do happen so frequently and cause further congestions, so now people instead of swearing on the situation make a better use of their time on the road and count the floors of the Burj and enjoy the view of the cladding that looks much better that in the pictures as the reflection and colours changes depending on the time of the day and weather conditions.

He meant that no steel is used outside the concrete, like in SWFC. Of course there is steel rebar in walls and floorslabs. Without rebar i doubt it would reach floor 10

Composites

My guess is that the so-called "steel" top section of Burj Dubai will not actually be made of steel but of one of the new super-light carbon based composites that are being developed. Much lighter and stronger than steel.

I really wonder how tall will it look... When all the 300-400m building start popping up like weeds... How will BD fare well against the skyline and how tall it will be when compared to the rest of the 30+ 1000ft or higher building

I'm sure it will more than hold its own being more than twice as tall as all the piddly 300-400m buildings!
