Visitors to the observation deck, branded "At the Top", can take in the view through floor-to-ceiling glass or venture outside onto an open-air deck, Emaar said. Image: Supplied

Emaar said it has created a Burj tour that visitors will go through prior to going up to the observation deck. Image: Supplied
The observation deck will be in 124th floor? At the model of Dubai in the second pic, will also have photos of the BD since the day one, until the day it finished?

Crane to Earth

Yet one more crane leaves from the Dubai skyline.

This will be entirely gone by tomorrow leaving L99 the sole crane visible on the BD.

Great news OTR, so the last cladding panels doesn't take so long to be in place. Impressive pics Imre some parts of the Burj seem to be darker by the light contrast.

Yep, the observation deck will be located on level 124, Christos.

I would think so, you'll probably have a complete history of Burj Dubai from conception to 100% completion no doubt. That would be really cool anyway.

There you go, Spandex!

Well, what can you say? Burj Dubai pretty much DESTROYS the NYC skyline!

PS: Thanks for the link.

Observation Deck Perspective

When you look at Cul's latest diagram and see that the BD observation deck is only 9-10 stories taller than the one on Sears tower it does make me wonder that perhaps it would have been better to have a smaller observation deck level footprint in square footage with maybe less fancy-schmacy interpretive bells and whistles and go for the higher altitude...like level 150 or 160....much smaller floors but zowie...a lot lot higher. Have all the interp stuff down below...plus now Sears has those acrylic sky-box bump outs where you can actually STAND on plexiglass and look straight down to street level....yikes. AND the Shanghai World Financial Center has TWO observation decks at or higher that what they are going to do at Burj Dubai.... makes ya wonder.

Great observation deck pics.....one thing continues to baffle me though....why did the architects not put the deck above existing deck heights?

Why would you not have the world's highest obs deck in the world's tallest building???
