Anyone know anything ??

Thank you
"Anyone know anything"?

I know that every property sold by Emaar in the Downtown Burj Dubai sq/km ended in the price AED 888, ie Dirhams 5,600,888.00.

I know that the Chairman of Emaar has a fav number 888.

The black roller going about the old town today had a plate H 888

For me its 824.6 or there is a conspiracy theory at play.

And as Altin stated........this is page 888

is it possible for this thread to be divided into several threads ? it is so huge its impossible to find what youre looking for .

like a bluprint / section plan section , a interior pic section , an exterior pic sectionj and so on .. ?
They are mechanical floors. Plus they are too small to have anyone live and or work in there anyway.

Last night at the Airport there was a guy with a board saying "ARMANI Hotel & Resorts". Some lady arrived and was picked up by him, probably a recruited staff member.

I am sitting here waiting on a repeat of the strobe show which I would think will be a rehersal for the 2nd December (National Day) and the soft opening on 4th January.

WOW, it was like the milky way opening up with the sparkling strobes on the spire, and syncronised lighting on each tier level.

The only obvious way to show this spectacle is by video, but since I got it the show has stopped.

Maybe soon

It looks like the paintcolor of the latest part of the lake is different from the one in the lake that is already filled. Is it because of the water or are they changing the color?
