Most of what you can see is the scaffolding encasing the spire.

Don't tell anyone

but it IS a launch pad. Dubai is secretly planning to take over the world. Don't ask me where I got it, but be careful...

If they want to get into space surely it would be easier to go to the top of Burj Dubai and hop on to the Moon when it passes at its nearest.
