Everyone's probably a bit overloaded with photos from last night, but I'll chuck in a few of my own

All heavily cropped and reduced. Straight .jpgs - really should process the RAWs for fireworks shots, but I can't be arsed

This sounds like another delay. The opening for Hotel has recently been quoted as February sometimes.

As was the opening of first Armani Residences.

What is now the opening date of the first Armani Residence (the 144 1 and 2 bedroom apartments floors 9 to 16)? When shall the first person get his or her keys and go home to Burj Khalifa?

If it was a un-authorized jump as the earlier ones, will they close the observatory deck ... or Armani Hotel?

Cheers.

It's amazing how the Burj changes in different light and from different angles - I actually missed some of the best shots by a few minutes as I couldn't get set-up in time, but there will be countless more opportunities for shots like that in the future
