- We have no confirmation on whether the landscaping is complete.
- There are good shots showing the the hotel podium completed and obviously the hotel entrance is done since the hotel is open. Also there is word the Armani residences and the hotel residences are beginning handovers and both use the hotel entrance. Starting handovers does not mean these 2 areas are fully completed although I have a sneaking suspicion they are.
- There have been recent shots showing the residence entrance podium looking complete. There is word the residence levels are beginning handovers so the residence entrance should be done. The residence area may or may not be completed and there has been no word on the luxury residence area above that.
- There haven't been any good shots of the office podium or any confirmation it or the office entrance are done. Also there has been no word any of the office space is done or leased out.
- The last shots of the steel levels above the highest tennant level (154), spire, and pinnacle showed much cleanup to be done although that may not ever happen. I imagine it would.

The last official word stated the handovers for the upper 4 tennant areas could take 6 months from the first handover.

I think completion of the whole of the works and final commissioning won't be untill the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2010.
I'm hoping we will get some official word but it's hard to say with this project.

They should either move it, or change the title.

Ofcourse second is the case, since office bit is most likely not finished yet. Burj Khalifa is not complited.

Yes.

I think the finishing's are good, the wood looked like high quality as well as kitchen fittings and finish.

Armani is nice as well but the furniture and finishings are quite dull - (for my taste) all though very modern there's not much not to like.

They are very expensive though and i personally cant see the point, I rather be on a high floor and go to Dubai Mall and furnish it from Armani myself...

Burj Khalifa welcomes its first residents in Armani Residences



Dubai, UAE; May 18, 2010: Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building described as ‘A Living Wonder’ now has its first residential community. The world’s first Armani Residences in Burj Khalifa recently welcomed its first residents.

Close on the heels of the launch of the world’s first Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa, Emaar Properties, the developer of the mixed-use tower, has handed over homes to buyers of Armani Residences, who now have the world’s most prestigious address.

Mr Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director – UAE, Emaar Properties, said: “From ‘History Rising,’ to ‘A Living Wonder,’ Burj Khalifa has now truly come to life with the first residential community in the luxurious Armani Residences.”

He added: “Already, with the opening of Armani Hotel Dubai, the tower is buzzing with activity, and with the imminent hand-over of The Residences and The Corporate Suites, Burj Khalifa will become a vibrant lifestyle community.”

Home-owner orientation for The Residences, luxury homes in Burj Khalifa, and The Corporate Suites, a collection of high-end offices also in the tower, is currently underway.

Armani Residences is developed through a collaboration of Emaar and Giorgio Armani S.p.A. Personally designed by fashion legend Giorgio Armani, the one- and two-bedroom apartments in Armani Residences celebrate luxurious modern living. Located on levels 9 to 16 of the tower, they offer spectacular views of the city and Downtown Dubai.
