A source from Emaar Properties, developer of Burj Khalifa, said the cost of fast-track tickets had been deliberately bumped up to persuade visitors to pre-book the cheaper timed tickets.

The Dh100 tickets may also soon increase in price, given that they had been advertised as an “introductory” offer.

Does anyone know where I can find construction plans so that I can build a model of the Burj Khalifa?

The developer is Emaar so you could try looking on their website for construction related info that might help.

Exactly, it's good that you point this out! This forum IS for talks and pictures of 'impressive pretty buildings', nothing more nothing less!

It's good to see you understand the concept of a forum about skyscrapers!
The only thing most of us actually care about on this forum, besides architecture, is people posting about non-architecture related things, like politics! Most of those off-topic posters, who don't seem to get what this forum is about get banned.

Whats the difference of buying property in Dubai from buying property in Las Vegas? In Las Vegas they rely solely on tourism. Without it it would be a slump. Dubai has business and leisure which makes it better to buy property in than Las Vegas.

I heard rumor that Dubai might build a second Burj Khalifia (twin)... Is that true? I hope not, I really like the way Burj Khalifia is right now. Twin tower would ruin it, IMO.

Have you been around the scale models section on this website? Well one of our users, ReiAyanami, made a paper model of the burj a while back. It is really nice, I've made it 4 times over because I wanted it to look its best in my collection. Actually, I'm making my 5th one right now and I plan on redesigning the top

Just go down to the bottom of the home screen to club forums. Select the group "the drawing board" and the section scale models should be there. Along with the burj, there are at least 300 other downloadable buildings

Ofcourse not! They are canceling all other big projects, so why would they build the exact same tower again?
