Personally I wont send them any pics , I got few emails from different newspapers , they wanted 20-30 pics from the beginning but only for free, they can be credited , but honestly who cares that my name is there or not?

Hi all.

Holy Moly - yet another great day for adding shots to the collection.

Hi Helghast.
A little late for xmas presents - isn't it ?
What a fantastic find man.
I'm still dating the shots - but at first glance it is still very cluttered up in the pinnacle. Same initial thought with Imre's visit to the steel section.
They have alot of clean up to do up high in the structure.

A few days ago while waiting to go eat turkey I took some scans from Adrian Smith's book "The Architecture of Adrian Smith SOM Towards a Sustainable Future". The book is rather cumbersome to scan on a flat panel scanner ...
I re-labelled the drawings that the labels were cut off in the scanning attempt. We can see that besides the parking on levels B1 and B2 there are many spaces on the Concourse and Ground levels.
There is some showing interior finishes also - this thing is going to look good ....
Click for full size - some are quite large. (not by Gerald's standards ... )

Site plan


Concourse level podium


Ground level podium


Level 1 podium


Interior

Lobby

I'm off on the fourth - can't wait to see the updates from the big party ...

Happy New Year all !!

It's been awhile since I've visited the thread. The result, taken as a whole, is just amazing. Last time I was here nothing in the immediate area had been completed. Does any one know how much space in the Burj, as well as the surrounding buildings, has been committed to?
