BK_2004_pics.zip (18 MB)

I only wish I had many more from the earliest work on this project. I know there are more out there as we got a teaser from a fellow forumer who has lots - but alas he has never posted any more or uploaded a pile of them to Imagehost. To me it is like reading the first pages of a book. They are just as important as the rest of the book and to me just as interesting.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.



On another note...
Nice find PG. Something I've been wondering for a while now to anyone in the know. Reading some articles that state the price of certain suites seem to suggest they are to be purchased like a condo and others clearly state rentals. Are any to be purchased or are all rentals and what areas if both ?
Thanx.

Thanks for the big zip file. Great to see these early shots - that bit of desert looks quite a bit different now!!! I'd also suggest changing the few BMP's to JPG's using PaintShop Pro's batch conversion utility or something else (keeping JPG quality set pretty high) as this makes the file size about 8x smaller.

Armani hotel per night is now AED 4000 ($ 1086), while the summer promotion will be about 2800dh ($760), excluding taxes.

You can rent at the Burj Dubai 1 bedroom apartment for 180k ($48913) and two bedrooms from 220k onwards ($59,782) per year.

Now, we advertise on Dubai Chronicle website hotel rooms from AED99 ($27) in brand new 3* hotel in Al Barsha. Also 1 bedroom apartments nicely furnished from AED 299, short term and all inclusive.

And right now, we also advertise for a hotel chain 50% on the summer rates in 800 hotels worldwide.

It seem it is becoming cheaper to live in a hotel with 24/7 service and superb facilities, than to buy or rent a home in Dubai.... considering.......

....go figure: tent in fron of the world's tallest....

Nancy Ajram to inaugurate chic World Cup tent at Burj Khalifa area
http://www.dubaichronicle.com/life/e...ifa-area-30859

World Cup fans are in for a treat as “One”, a luxurious Marquee built especially for the occasion of 2010 FIFA World Cup, is set to open its doors today to receive spectators of the upcoming global event running from 11th June to 11th July. The organisers have planned an extravagant launch that will see the famous Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram performing at the Marquee, in addition to the presence of Naseem Hamid, the British, Yemeni origin, boxer and former Bantamweight and Featherweight champion, as the Guest of Honour.

Presented by du, and supported by Coca-Cola as the Official Partner, the high-end venue will be one of the main attractions of the upcoming Dubai Summer Surprises 2010. Fully-equipped with state-of-the-art 35 Plasma screens in addition to two 2 X 3 meters giant screens, the Marquee will also offer its visitors a great menu of food and beverages in addition to shiesha to set the mood of excitement and cheering across the 2 floored venue.

Hi Google.
Near 75,000 skyscraper pics from the 15 projects I am watching around the world. I just save 'em as I get 'em - jpg, bmp, png, whatever.
Happy to see your among the forumers who like the shots.
I agree - the transformation of the new downtown area is amazing in a short 7 year span.

Hi DXB.
Awesome shots man.
Great coverage of all 3 podiums. I called the landscaping complete on my milestone list a week or 2 ago based on circumstantial evidence including your posts. By the looks of these shots it was a good call. These are the first shots I've seen showing the tennis courts completed also.
The cymbal sculpture looks cool.

Great idea indeed

Nice! Gorgeous! You should check out the 3d models section, its in the drawing board, which can be accessible by going to club forums and then creative corner.
