Just a short comment. I ve been to Dubai couple of years ago and I felt in love with this futuristic city. I cannot wait to return, hopefully next Summer with my family. Also or especially to see Burj Khalifa.

Hi all.

Here's a youtube vid from dazzamadi showing his luxury residence on level 76 by the looks of the zoom in he took from a helicopter ride before the residence tour.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSB73lJOWgE

Downright impressive crib ...

Not sure if this can be taken as the handovers have begun in the luxury residences (area 5) or if they were allowed in just to look around.

Hopefully some info will filter out as to the handovers (of the upper 3 areas).

EDIT
Thet definitely entered through the residence entrance and the unit IS level 76 with its large terrace facing SZR. Let me say it again ...
Fantastic looking fit and finish.

If I good remember, there is no apartment at level 76, only amenities for residents.
It is also a transfer floor, people go out of the fast elevator taken from ground to level 76, then switch for one that can stops every level until 108.
The swimming pool is shared with other apartment owners.

Hi isic.

Thanks for the input - nice to have someone here who was involved with the project.
The plans do say luxury residential as well as amenities and skylobby on 76.
Here is page 9 of my plan to illistrate.



Looking at the video again The pool area and terrace do look like common tennant areas. Also we can see the stairs going up to the upper amenities on 77.
Near the end of the vid, just after what is clearly their residence they shoot the side of the burj and they are clearly on level 79 so that is most likely their residence level.

Anyway I should have watched closer but I just assumed from their zoom in from the chopper and from the plans saying luxury residential on 76 - my bad.

Are you sure there aren't some residences on 76 ? - even just 1 or 2 ?
They may have revised the plan, but if not they include luxury residential in the usage list for a reason.

This is all I have of 76 - seems like alot of floor space ...
