I find it's way too late at night to be counting that high.

Seriously though, the tallest building in the world should have the highest observation deck in the world IMO. You'd think it wouldn't even be up for question now wouldn't you?!

That is my take.
Wrong ...

I've talked to him already on another forum ...

Great shot 234.

I wonder if the cladding is finally completed yet ?

If Dubai city tower was built, it would be the same height as the plane

Does notlook safe to me.

Or, is this staged and photo-shopped in a safe on-ground stage bing set up to take pictures at the OB deck ?

Comments -- ????

Thank you

BTW, since a few days, the synchronized and powerful warning white lights are not working anymore (or as before).

I see week and not-synchronized ones now.


PS. Thank god the tags have been edited and the almost-crap cut out.

But the higher you go the thinner it gets - not much room for visitors above a certain point. Perhaps for an extra charge people could be allowed higher?
