Hi all.

How visible is it from the ground do you think? Could it be a continuation of the 'stripes' that the mechanical floors give the building? I know it is only glass, and only one floor, but with reflective glass, and the right lights shone on it, could it look like a final stripe?

Fantastic photographic and technical updates guys. Thank you.
Hi Watching.

Now see - there is a good thought - I hadn't thought of that. That's why discussion is good.
If Altin says it can't be seen from the ground I guess that's not the reason.

There is definately a reason ... - I guess only sheik Mo's hairdresser knows for sure ...

As a prize, I'm thinking more along the lines of a Ferrari 458 Italia. To be delivered, or collected, I'm cool either way!

Hi Fury,

I agree, that clear glass is there for a good reason. It looks like a small observation deck to me . . . and even if it's a little difficult to get to, it would still be so worth it IMO. It's very intriguing huh!? Maybe it's a private OD for the ELITE of Burj Dubai!?

PS: Hope you're feeling much better thesedays.

I count roughly 444 workers in that photo. Now, where's my Ferrari?

I know this has nothing to do with this thread but I am just posting it for everybody to see.

UAE agrees $10bn deal to help pay off Dubai World debt

The government of Abu Dhabi and the Central Bank of the UAE has announced that it has agreed to provide $10 billion to the Dubai Financial Support Fund, allowing Dubai World to repay $4.1 billion of Islamic sukuk bonds that are due to be paid on Monday.

The announcement was made by the government of Dubai in an e-mailed statement.

Sheikh Ahmad Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of the Dubai Supreme Fiscal Committee confirmed the move by the UAE government to provide the financial support.

He said: "Like other global financial centers, Dubai has faced recent market challenges driven by the global economic slowdown and a severe real estate market correction.

"Recently, Dubai World announced that it might not be able to commercially support its obligations. Since that time, the Government of Dubai has worked closely with the Abu Dhabi Government and the UAE Central Bank in addressing and assessing the impact of Dubai World on the UAE economy, banking system and investor confidence."

He added: "Specifically, the Government of Abu Dhabi has agreed to fund $10 billion to the Dubai Financial Support Fund that will be used to satisfy a series of upcoming obligations on Dubai World.

"As a first action for the new fund, the Government of Dubai has authorised $4.1 billion to be used to pay the sukuk obligations that are due today.

"The remaining funds would also provide for interest expenses and company working capital through April 30, 2010 - conditioned on the company being successful in negotiating a standstill as previously announced.

Well, it can be seen from the ground if you have a big enough lens

That 100x video is BRILLIANT.


/edit

But too short - perhaps one at around 30x would be a good compromise?
