If you put the Burj Dubai in Minnesota, at sea level, it would still be taller than our tallest building and taller than the highest point in our state. Eagle Mountain; 2,301 feet.

Hi all.

Thanx for the update 234.

Wow - your first shot really shows how this thing just OWNES the skyline.

In recent night shots there still isn't any interior lights on very high up. We are getting closer to Dec 02. I'm convinced that will be a soft opening date. With all the press releases about the observatory recently I am thinking it will be part of the soft opening along with the hotel and hotel residences. It is possible the landscaping will be completed by then also.

Yesterday evening, the entire level above the second highest set of rail things was lit up from inside.

/edit

Which reminds me - can someone please indicate on a photo the level that the observation deck will be at? Sorry if this has been posted recently and I've missed it.

Thanks Abdallah - I know the observation deck is on level 124, but I'm not sure where that actually is (too lazy to count the floors).

A photo with a big red arrow would be good

Should of went onto the roof last night as I could clearly see orion and other star systems from the garden. At least the better weathers coming.

Thinking about that, air quality will be excellent up the top, great for stars.

So the observation deck is in the middle of this image, next to that service cradle.
