CNBC has no right to inject economics into a discussion about human engineering when CNBC who claim to be "first in business worldwide" didn't even see the economic recession coming. So they have the least credibility in this regard. Despite their biast reporting, Dubai hands over real estate projects on time. They should be more concerned with how the US will pay its debt of 12 trillion and rising.

Today we should celebrate the human race and its achievements, not politically motivated/slanted coverage of economics in the middle east!

Nope, I watched him today around 1PM local time here in Dubai he was interviewed infront of Burj Dubai. He will probably be giving an interview again on Dubai One channel later today, so you can watch it then. So far nothing posted on YouTube.

What about Imre, 234sale, Altin, Gerald and all the others? I am sitting at Starbucks right now (LG facing The Address) and I have to say it is a vibrant atmosphere out there... just had some lunch at Fatburgers in LG Food Court and lots of Media and Press people just came back from visiting the observation deck. Cameras everywhere.

I will be at Burj Park Island, got the invitation.
Dunno if it will be better to make pictures.



I wish you all a good evening

Regardless of the size of the building or the overall demand for real estate in Dubai, this edifice is a work of art and is easily among the most beautiful pieces of architecture in the world.

As I like to say, it's "alien-worthy."

When the aliens come, examples like the Burj Dubai have the ability to argue for the preservation of human civilization.

By the way, was the architect working under the auspices of Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill on this project?
