This isnt over yet ! we still have to look forward to

1- Terrorist threats (allah forbid)
2- Suicides on a yearly basis
3- Endless number of guaranteed lightning strikes during summer and winter freak storms
4- Taking family and friends to visit ...
5-Planning a trip to Dubai now to see this magnificent Structure
6- Life / culture / stories / jokes / will start to flourish around this iconic tower
7-The tonnes of movies from all over the world that will either be located in Dubai or use the tower as a backdrop
8-all the awesome pictures that will start flooding the internet from people who have been on the OB deck
9- The years of conspiracies that will flood international newspapers of how the Burj Khalifa is lifeless and the thousands of paragraphs from Dubai enthusiasts proving otherwise !
10- IMRE AND SALE AND GERALD and all the other great photographers providing us all with really good pictures and updates
...
.
.etc

Why the animosity? The entire project was done in partnerships through free trade among many countries. And it definitely was not done by the lowest bidders, the competition on South Korea winning the contract by Samsung was particularly fierce

also for the name everyone should call it the Burj Dubai anyways, the new name is not so great

That's a good reason to switch the name back to Burj Dubai.

So much said about the name, bottom line its just that a name & they can call it what ever they want, for us is its structural beauty!

Got home just in time after work to catch the display, CNN, Al Jazeera, BBC, Euronews, Sky, you name it I was watching, but ALL of them cut the display short! It was so irratating!

Congrats Dubai on this marvoul, cant wait to see it in the flesh soon & great pics guys especially Imre, the unsung hero of the Burj for SCC!

Let's say, it has not been renamed, but another name has been added. After one sleep I think it was nice step and move. I think most of you would might do the same when in position of HH, even I don't know all the conditions.

Cheers.

Following yesterday’s opening the $1.5bn Burj Khalifa tower’s first residents are due to move in next month and Emaar’s chairman, Mohammed Alabbar, said 90 percent of the properties in the tower have been sold, the firm is set to get a 10 percent yield on its investment and the completion will boost earnings in 2010. “It will have a positive impact on the first, second and third quarters of this year,” Alabbar said while standing at the foot of the 828-metre high tower.
