these parts are for office or condo?
Either office or condo, seems that it is too small.

Handover was pushed back to Feb 28 from when ? As in what was the handover date before that ?
How many times has it been pushed back ?
Thanks.

Hi PG.
I've been neglecting to thank you for posting all the pics you find.
Thank you - they are appreciated.

So - the landscaping is done or nearly done on podium zone C (by the hotel entrance). I'm sure the other 2 podiums are getting close also.
So Moscow ... what was it you posted last week about the landscaping that will never be done in time ? J/K bud.
Those shots look good with what little they show.

Hi Fury,

The "estimated completion time" as per the contract is the 30th December 2008, which was pushed to 30/06/ 2009 then again to 30/09/2009 then again to the 31/12/2009 and now to 27/02/2010 which I hope is the last

I have no idea, sorry. The concept of me actually being able to afford to rent an apartment in the Burj is sadly rather laughable

Having said that, I've always felt with iconic buildings such as the Burj that you're far better off on the outside looking at it, than on the inside looking out.

So first the EMAAR banner is removed from the building itself, now they've taken down the sign as well - a sign that was only up for, what, 2 weeks?

Let the conspiracy theories commence!

Maybe the Chairman didnt like that sign and wanted more impressive ?

Only 14 days left and still nothing adverts about the opening, this is interesting for me.

It was stolen by the Knight's Templar in broad daylight, taken back in time to the Crusades, and drop on a bunch of soldiers! WIN

Burj Dubai

AS&E’s Z Portal®

Z PORTAL MULTI-VIEW CARGO AND VEHICLE SCREENING SYSTEM (RELOCATABLE)

AS&E’s Z Portal® is a multi-view, drive-through inspection system capable of scanning cars, vans, trucks, and their cargo for concealed threats and contraband.

The relocatable screening system is available in two sizes — one for large trucks, buses, and cargo vehicles; and a smaller size for passenger vehicles. Z Portal can be configured with up to three Z Backscatter™ imaging modules, allowing a left, right, and top view of the vehicle under examination. The multi-views provide maximum screening capability and facilitate image interpretation. The Z Portal system provides high-quality, photo-like images that offer outstanding material discrimination capability.

The Z Portal is a high-throughput screening gateway, allowing approximately 80 trucks or 120 passenger vehicles per hour. Driven at a speed of 5 kph, vehicles and their cargo are scanned for threats and illegal goods such as stowaways, explosives, drugs, and alcohol. With its compact design and profile, the Z Portal system is ideal for high-traffic locations with space constraints and a high-throughput requirement. The Z Portal system is safe for drivers, operators, cargo, and the environment.

TECHNOLOGY
The Z Portal employs AS&E's patented Z Backscatter technology, which produces photo-like images of the contents of a container or vehicle, highlighting organic materials, such as explosives, illegal drugs, agricultural products, currency, and other contraband. Optional Forwardscatter imaging creates up to two additional side-view images of the scanned vehicles and cargo. This option offers a second ‘scatter’ perspective to display dense regions of scanned vehicles and cargo to identify potential anomalies.
