Beautiful photo. I looked at your flicker page. Your photos make Dubai look beautiful.

Dang, you repost tons of posts separately and you miss the ones that are actually adressed to you, the ones that suggest you not to act like that. Please stop trashing the thread.

i knowthis is currently classed as a supertall, but this is so monumentally tall shouldn't it kickstart a new class; The Hypertall?

and thats my opinion, too.

@mods is it possible to cut the, lets say, 600m+ towers out of the supertalls and start a new sub-forum?

I don't think right now we need a separate forum for such towers because we don't have that many 600+ m towers for such forum. Once more towers over that level are announced and U/C then it would be feasible.

Creating a whole forum for a few towers is not worth it IMO.

Hi all.

Well, we are still waiting for ratification of the height claim from a month and a half ago. I haven't heard anything for 2 weeks so I'm presuming Emaar is dragging their feet in sending the correct drawings to the CTBUH - surprise surprise ...
I'm confident the numbers are 621.3, 828.0, and 828.6 but confirmation would be nice.

On another note:
I haven't come across any good shots of the podium on the hotel entrance side (zone C). I wonder if it is complete ? Not sure if we will get any press releases of the first of the Armani residence handovers that are to be this month. I wonder if they have begun ? Hopefully the people who are forummers will post info and/or pics.

Hi Fury

The number of 828m, it is not the final height of Burj Khalifa? We still waiting for the "correct" height of BK?

Hi DXB.
Yet another delay ... - fancy that ...How many delays is this now for you - a half dozen ?
I wonder now if the Armani hotel will still launch on March 18 ?
I guess my previous question on whether the podium is complete on the hotel entrance side is moot - they have another month.
Thanks for the heads up DXB - I hope when you do finally get in you will update us all with much pics and info on the fit and finish.

This brings up another point. All the people like DXB who are waiting to get in live somewhere now. They will want to plan their move based on the handover date from Emaar. How the heck are they supposed to do that ? If it were me I would be getting somewhat upset by these delays ...

Hi Christos.
Here is the 3 heights the CTBUH recognizes :
- Height to Architectural Top - 828.0 - this is unofficially confirmed.
- Height to Tip - 828.6 - this is my thought based on the height to arch. top measuring to the top of the guardrail of the top platform and adding the estimated 0.6 m. for the aircraft warning lights. This number is not confirmed yet - the CTBUH site still has 830.0 based on the height to arch top measuring to the floor of the top platform which IMO is incorrect.
- Height to Highest Occupied Floor - 621.3 (level 160) - this is unofficially confirmed.
All 3 of these heights measure from level B1 - this is unofficially confirmed. This adds 10.0 m. to all the level heights as per the plans which measure from the ground level. The 828 claim jives perfectly IMO.

To get everything officially ratified Emaar has to send the CTBUH the correct drawings which they obviously haven't done and seem to be taking their sweet time in doing so. A month and a half seems absurd to me to get what seems like a correct number ratified.

I think Burj Dubai sounds much better than Burj Khalifa, don't you think so?
