The tower had never had balconies planned........a reason is the wind speed on higher altitudes.......and imagine this one with balconys they would totally destroy the design....

one tier i dont know exactely which will act as a open observation deck......its the one at level 124....

Yeah, balconies would take away from the sleekness of the building. Plus I doubt anyone wants a balcony at 144 stories.

On the balcony topic, I thought that the nearest apartments or function areas still have a balcony which is just the roof of the wing next to it. The floorplans show multiple wavy screens and other design elements that seem to indicate balconies on top of where every tier ends although I'm sure they'd stop them higher once the floor area becomes too small to use effectively.

i reckon most tier rooftops will house BMU's. the balcony or observtion deck on 124 will be an amazing space. looking down 442m and up another 377m!

Emaar should really copyright the image of the building. These other suckers should not take any benefits from it.

It doesn't look like a real luxury product to me and of course there is no association.

You mean Emaar didn't trade mark the name "Burj Dubai" ?
I'm sure these nuts are licencing the name... aren't they?

I only scour the net for pics of the Burj but the CS thread on SSP has great coverage by HarryC.

On Topic - here is a print showing the shape of tier 16 - levels 156, 157, 158, and 158 Mezz. The print is actually 158. The dimension grids are 4.5 meters. In it we can see the steel structure main vertical and horizontal pieces.



This structure is the most elegant and complex ever built. The many tiers change shape far more than any other and the height is unmatched. I know I'm preaching to the choir here but there is alot of envious haters out there. Each to there own but no true skyscraper fan can be hatin' this magnificent structure.

That's obviously a scissor stair; two stairs in one volume. They require at least a storey height = double a stair landing to landing height + landing slab thickness + slab thickness. Any idea how high the floor to floor height is at this location? Any sections available through this stair? Are there any code requirments for the minimum height of landing to landing height (fire-escape headroom)? Thanks in advance.
