Thank you my friend

Looks like that's a "no". This is taking an insanely long amount of time.

Slightly outdated photo as well, but it won't be outdated for those that will have their apartments at this height. (2007.10?) Panoramic view from the Burj Dubai by Arabianbusiness.com:

Does anyone know why the Burj Dubai does not have balconies? Was this ever considered in the planning? And if so, why did they take them out?

And will the tiers act as the balconies for the apartments or hotel rooms closest to them?
