Hi Helghast.

You bet - here you go.



Although it is great to know the 828 is measured from B1, I will be waiting to update to my final official plan untill the height to tip is ratified. I want to add that and a few other things as well. I'm pretty sure the height to tip is 828.6 or so and not 830. We shall see what the guys that matter agree upon. I don't want to say too much right now but if I can I will post here before the announcement to the world as I was able to with the level B1 info.

Is it just me, or something is missing in that picture? A piece on the left side of the picture that runs between the windows?

they need to build something close to it thats half its height just like the wfc was at the twin towers so its not standing all alone, it would really look good.

Truly amazing pics oasis...Thx 4 sharing.
It seems weird (to me) that with all that metal & glass, the observation deck has wood flooring.

moscow boy, you have no idea about Dubai, You are just learning from the internet. Unfortunately most of your posts are to ask questions..

You can eat for have a 3 course meal at Hive for 55AED. This is in Souq Bandar, next to the mall. I went with Gerald, He and I where impressed by the quality and level of service.

I suggest you stop posting rubbish, get a ticket and come for an evening.

The Ibis hotel next to the international confrence center is $100 a night, 3 minutes taxi from the burj.
