The people that have a terrace will not be happy to have such a mess installed permanently. ;-)

Zumtobel did the inauguration lights, no? Or did they just supply the lights, and Procon actually take care of the event itself?

Hi all.

Thanks for the info Isicman.
That does make sense that they were temporary.
Were the ones up in section 21A also temporary ?

great.thanks, i put also with imageshack,.
its design has made it so hard to eclipse. when i see it now. its basically 500m high with its 3 tier wings, then it takes on a very thin slightly differnt form to reach another 200m to apprix 700m before the spire really takes over.
this is why the other new towers that are trying to rival it only reach just over 600m. they need some type of spire to extend there height but wouldnt look right with there designs. but with burjK, its tiered stepped design is perfect to extend vertically to over 800m high.
does this work>

The full inauguration was supervised directly by Emaar properties, we only installed enough temporary power supply.
There is some searchlight in the upper tiers at about 650 to 700 meters that are permanent.

Hi guys.
The ones on the lower half of section 21A at 698.10 meters.

Hi Cul.
Link works good.
I agree. The complex series of terraces and setbacks needs to finish off to a point and does so nicely.
Awesome feat of engineering.

Hi muse.
No info has come out stating the BK is completed.
I mentioned a while ago the title should say inaugurated but ...
There has been a small amount of news on handovers beginning in 2 or 3 of the 4 residential areas but none on whether the office area (or any other area for that matter) is completed.
There was some talk from insiders that completion of the whole of the works may take untill late into 2010.

Hi Adrian.
Do you come and post in here to be more "sick of it" ....... ?
I would hope for much more info to be filtering out from behind the veil of secrecy but untill word comes out that can be believed about completion I think the thread is fine where it is. More info may lead to some reasonable discussion which would be good.
