As for info - any and all you have time to type out will be welcome - by me anyway. What area were you in (low floor) and if not yours how did you get in to view it ?

As for the watermark so we can see your shots I think photoshop has that cabability but I'm sure there are free and better options. I for one am very interested in seeing them. I find it hard to believe I'm the only one - every other page in this thread has a post wanting to see interior shots.

Imre, Gerald, Sale, OTR, Altin - help please. What do you use for watermarks ?

Hi Fury,

Ok let me use those from Imre,

These were taken on the 23rd floor - Normal Residences, not my unit but went with someone who had orientation.

Bare with me while I upload them.

Finishing looks very good, congratulations!



Are you planning to live there or you will rent out?

Do you have info about the service charge?

Not sure yet, probably rent it out - but that will depend on the service charge - no word on that yet... they are keeping quiet!

Congratulations.

I think I'm right in saying that if you did choose to live there, you'd be among the first ever residents of the "world's tallest building". Not just of this particular world's tallest building, but of all of them. Ever. In history. Because the BK is I believe the first ever structure to hold that title that had residential accommodation?

That really would be quite something to be able to tell the grand-kids.

The grand kids wont be impressed as the hover above ground at 18000 feet in their Hoverhome.

Thanks for the photos, DXB! The finish does look very good indeed. I like the hallway also. Well done!

Though I'm not too impressed with the appearances of the flats, I must say that this one is very well done.
