Gerald, those are magnificent, especially the second one!

I do hope, that when the tower is complete, the mechanical levels (with the BMU rails) will be fully illuminated as part of the "display" lighting.

It would be worth going to dubai to just see this thing first hand. Im sure once your there your high hopes will probably still be exceeded.

I was driving on Al Khail Road at 5.30h this morning and I could barely focus on driving as the Burj and The Address and actually all buildings on SZR were reflecting the most intensive red of the sunrise in one of the clearest days I have ever experienced in Dubai. The whole skyline looked like a digital rendering and the reflections were like fire, so red. On the complete height of the Burj just a deep orangy-red reflection of the sunrise before an indigo blue sky - you guys can't imagine just how awesome this looked! What an incredible sight!

...And I did not have my camera. I am so depressed, the whole day is ruined

I have to get up early one day, drive out at 4.30h AM and capture this masterpiece at sunrise. Hopefully I will be able to catch a day with similar weather conditions. That'd be a dream
