Hi all.

Hi DXB.
Great interior shots - thanks man.
The fit and finish looks to be fitting of this great structure - looks fantastic.
These are from level 23 you say - the plans call this area the hotel residences - I add the label area 3. So going by your posts - it sounds like the first (lower) 4 areas (of 6) are now open or beginning handovers.

Also - nice shots of the residential podium. It looks complete. So 2 of the 3 podiums are complete. I wonder if the office podium is done ? I would like to know so I can call the landscaping complete on my milestone list.

Hi Gerald.
I believe you are correct in stating the residents of the BK will be the first WTB/WTS residents in history. I hadn't thought of that. Yet another first for this project.

Yes i discovered today the Ferrari...
Christos - These are not Armani Residence, I will go into those and take separate pictures - Armani residences are furnished.

OTR - Address is 61 AED /sqft so as the residences are not serviced and furnished, I expect them to be around 40-50 AED sq/ft - Armani will be much higher around 70-80 AED sq/ft.

Amazing to realise that the service charges for the Burj will be around the same per square foot as my rental charges for an apartment in a building that looks onto it

Yes thats why I am thinking circa 90 sq/ft for BK or to be more precise AED 88.88 per sq/ft.

This would off course be 100% transparent and auditable
