I posted a while ago on the idea that we can guage when this thing is fully completed by watching for the blue man group coming and going.
Perfect group to open the Burj...also the pics of the lights inside at dusk/night are stellar!!

Hi all.

Great updates guys.

I see the railings on a half dozen or so terraces are still being worked on. Untill they are done and the panels that are missing and/or need glazing that are scattered around here and there I don't consider the cladding complete.

I expect it will be done for soft opening along with everything clean and shiny.
The BMU's may all be installed and ready to go now - but if not they will be by the soft opening date.

Its called a panorama, usually software that stiches together photos that would be impossible to take normally.
