I think, that both names will be used. Or this one is only for today, as some present to President.

The only option now is H.H. Sheikh Khalifa to present Dubai with his tower and rename it Burj Dubai after the name of the city.

828m....surpassing most of our guesses.

When I tell people I want to visit Dubai, they quaffed at me calling the place an uncultured and boring place.

I have no idea if they are correct, but i wouldnt care...as Id be a boring bastard anyway and spend my entire time there at this tower just basking in its greatness.

Onwards to the next worlds tallest...the title is changing sooner than ever.

Dubai is probably a cool place if you have a lot of money. Otherwise- IDK if there is something to do there other than staring at the skyscrapers.

Burj Khalifa... oh - my - god...

Other than that: WHAT A SHOW!
At its peak I thought I was watching an exploding A-bomb. To see this in real life was a sight I will never forget in my life

They changed the building´s name mmmmmm I don´t like much the new name but it doesn´t matters, the real important thing is that this building is stunning and the inauguration´s ceremony was so much exciting.
I couldn´t watch opening because I was sleeping.

I have just witnessed the most incredible show that not one of us, or the professional media could get across in reality in images or video to the extent of what we watched live.

What a show, from the parachutes, to the countdown of numbers that ended in 828 not to mention the fireworks and fountains.

Remarkable, and my thanks to all Emiratis, you should be so proud of your country and in particular one of the most respected rulers on the world forum.

I thought I had taken in everything tonight with a great view of the event..............until I got home and heard the name change from BD to BK!

Right At this very moment its an anti climax with only aviation beacons on display on the BK, so so dark after what has just happened.

I guess that the BK is sleeping on its new name, and as a new resident of " The Burj Khalifa Downtown Area" as was just described on the news, likewise I will sleep on something that I feel will be a potential impact on my investments in the historical old area of "Downtown Burj Dubai".

As I say I will sleep on it
