How about you build the ones you have in your signature ... at least those that already started (many years ago)?


Oh, and did you put up the two 30' French/Luxemburg made steel beams planned for this month yet?

I find it hilarious how many people act like changing the name is some big affront to humanity. They spent the money, they can call it whatever the hell they want. Complaining on a message board, threatening some worthless "petition" is just sad. Seriously.

That said/ranted, that was truly a stunning ceremony. The fireworks were spectacular. Then again, one only has to go back a few pages to find idiots complaining about that too!

Bleh. People are stupid. The tower is beautiful, regardless of name.

When you build your own tower with your money then you can name it whatever you want but you can't start an online petition over the name of the private property.

The Burj has 3 entrances at different levels, and as per the architectural and structural plans the height was calculated from the highest entrance level.

But I thought the height increase would then be a max of 824.6 and not 828?

We have an additional 3.4m which is almost a full floor from somewhere?

As Fury is aware, I have been plugging 828 from the start.

But the down side is that the last 40 floors are so small they are useless.
Next tower should be 1000 meters (180-200 floors) and ALL floors should be fully utilized
