And the egg only comes boiled. You'd have to pay extra for scrambled or omelete.

Also this has been mentioned before but The residences are still valued at about 3,500 dhs per square foot compared with the launch price of about 2,000 dhs if I remember correctly.
Armani Residence at 3500 dhs per sqft? - I don't think so?? - do you mean Burj Khalifa residential apartments?

Armani Residence are around 6000 dhs per sqft ++

Hopefully their launch will be successful. It sure will have breath-taking views and luxury amenities, but obviously for a major price.

'Castle in the Air'

The New Yorker has set its eyes (or rather two pairs of eyes) on the Burj Khalifa to wonderful effect. Hendrik Hertzberg takes a shot at the decision to rename the tower, calling the building the "Burj formerly known as Dubai".

Paul Goldberger, the magazine's architecture correspondent, writes a lovely, sprawling essay on the tower that talks about its place in Dubai (which he calls "a cross between Hong Kong and Las Vegas that tries to operate as if it were Switzerland").

Some excerpts: "The tower is a shimmering silver needle, its delicacy as startling as its height. You would think that anything this huge would dominate the sky, but the Burj Khalifa punctuates it instead."

Photo caption: People take photos in front of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai on January 26, 2010. Randi Sokoloff / The National

"[T]he design has an aesthetic virtue, too, giving the Burj Khalifa, for all its twenty-first-century ingenuity, a lyrical profile that calls to mind the skyscrapers of eighty or ninety years ago. The defining towers of the New York sky line, at least before the Second World War, were skinny compared with today's skyscrapers, and their vertical lines gave intense visual pleasure."

"The profile of the Burj has a magnetism that is lacking in almost every other super-tall building of our time. Furthermore, the tower doesn't indulge in the showy engineering tricks that have become so common today; it doesn't get wider as it rises, or lean to one side, or appear to be made of broken shards. There is something appealing about a building that relies on the most advanced engineering but doesn't flaunt it."

"The Burj Khalifa, like most super-tall skyscrapers, looks best from afar, and, certainly, it can't do much to mitigate the real horror of Dubai, which isn't the fact that most of the towers look gaudy on the sky line but that they are wretched at street level. This is a city that has grown with utter hostility to the idea of the street. The main commercial thoroughfare, Sheikh Zayed Road, lined with skyscrapers, is a twelve-lane highway. It's impossible to get anywhere here without a car, and there is no place to walk except inside a mall."

"You don't build this kind of skyscraper to house people, or to give tourists a view, or even, necessarily, to make a profit. You do it to make sure the world knows who you are."

The Armani Hotel will occupy the levels between the concourse and the eighth floor, and also on levels 38 and 39 of the tower.

Hi all.

I have it from a reliable source - the 828.0 is measured from level B1.
There are 2 entrances to the offices. One is on the concourse level from the podium in front of the entrance pavillion and the other is on level B1 where you enter then take an escalator up to the concourse level - both leading to the office elevator lobby. Level B1 is both "underground" and a lower / parking level but it does meet the criteria to be included in the height. It is the lowest significant pedestrian entrance and is open-air because of the opening in the concourse level podium that the water sculpture that sits on level B1 sticks up through.
This is great news as all of the levels and sections individual heights remain the same and the extra 10 meters (from 818 as per the plans to 828 as is the claim) comes from the 6 m. high concourse level and the 4 m. high level B1. As I posted a while ago I suspected this and was hoping this was the case

The height to tip is another story.
- When the revised top platform was erected I thought the top of the guardrail was the top of tier 30 at 818 and the floor with the hatch was welded down inside at approx 816.6.
- When the CTBUH put 830 height to tip on their site I thought the floor with the hatch was the height to arch. top at 828 and the guardrail and beacons added the 2 meters.
- After much thought and pouring over pics that show the 7 fins on tier 30 are spaced as they should be as per the plans I now believe my first thoughts were correct. The top of the guardrail IS the top of tier 30 and IS the height to arch. top at 828.0 m. The floor with the hatch is at approx 826.6 m. The height to tip is approx 828.6 assuming the beacons are 0.6 m. high IMHO.
