What ever the height is gonna be, the Burj Dubai is history in the making.

Better said by Emaar: History Rising.

Hoped to be off service off you

I am sorry but i dont know nothing about the person you are refering to

I dont even know the name off that famous person.

Heck, even the name off the place off where Vanherricks lives doesnt ring any bells with me. It might be a nice place to live but i dont know a squat about his home town (city?)

Anyways cheers with you dude and have a nice day

Well if you watched the Discovery Channel "Really Big Things" they mentioned
a couple times the core would go to 160, I even ask about this and got no reply. So for the past six weeks Ive thought the building would be more than 818.

The question is just how high

At first glance I thought those shots taken from the top of the burj were aerial photos, the way your looking down on all the other towers, crazy.

The Bujr Dubai looks better everyday, the site around the complex look well too. I only imagine in the next 10 year how this zone will develop a lot of towers, especially in the Bussiness Bay.

I've been following the construction of the Burj for a while, but I'm still confused about some stuff.

What number is the top habitable floor?
What floor is the last concrete floor?
Will there be habitable floors in the steel section?
