I am sure there will be a huge celebration when this project is completed. Imre, please make sure you update me here in Europe with a movie or a video as the TV in the Netherlands, won't even pay attention to that subject.

It's too bad we can't get a list of what is sold and what is not for the whole structure including the offices. It would be nice to know both before the full opening and after.

Hi Fury,

Burj Dubai will be crane-free in a 'few weeks'

[IMG]http://i31.************/2vb91g1.jpg[/IMG]
Burj Dubai, the tallest tower in the world, is expected to open this year. (SUPPLIED)

By Sona Nambiar on 9/7/2009

The last of the cranes atop the Burj Dubai will be taken down in a few weeks, an Emaar Properties spokesperson told Emirates Business. The cranes were originally supposed to come down by end-August.

"The dismantling of the cranes will be completed in a few weeks from now as they are currently being utilised for the final phase of glass cladding on the higher levels of Burj Dubai. Additionally, the cranes are being used to facilitate seamless movement of materials for the interior works of the higher levels," said the spokesperson.

Meanwhile, the market is afloat with confirmations from sources close to the project that the project opening will coincide with the UAE National Day. Emaar, however, refused to confirm the date. "Burj Dubai will open this year," added the spokesperson.

When completed, Burj Dubai will meet all four criteria listed by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

Possible that you can render us a super-sized pic sometime?

Can't wait to see the crane getting dismantled (or disected whichever) bit by bit BTW. Got to see the real-life, non-rendered Burj without the crane.
