Entry fees for the observation deck at the rate of 3000 visitors a day @ minimum fees 100/- for one year would be AED 109 million. Not bad.

Too bad you can't down-vote it.

BTW Imre, I voted on yours.

Me too. It looked real. Sorry Imre. I am voting for yours now.

EDIT: Voted for each of Imre's work except for that stupid render. I urge all to vote Imre on this one!

Well, in that case I'd have to find another solution ... like standing beneath the Burj in the scorching summer sun, wearing a thick coat but no hat or sunglasses, and taking endless pictures of it.

Maybe sometimes I am, but only to people I know or a-holes (Dennis belonging to the former) ... I don't know you, so ...


BTW: Today the top of the Burj was almost piercing the thick clouds

I wouldn't want to be the one in a cleanning trip there. That facade would be a b*tch to keep it decently clean, as any other painted concrete building in town.

That render used to belong to STR, a forumer who used to make numerous, highly detailed renders of the Burj for this thread and were the best renders anybody made here. But, like a few others here over the years, he got pissed at the mods (and others) and pulled over a hundred of his Dubai renders, then left never to be seen again (like the others). He actually made great Chicago skyline renders (including the Spire) as well.
