Top of the Burj is broken I'll need to fix it manually, but this will do for now

There is currentlhy only 8 levels being fitted out for offices:
113+114
141 to 143
and 152 to 154

The ceiling of the two first groups is a mix of gypsum boards and tiles
For the chairman office, these are special triangular ceiling tiles made in Switzerland.

All other levels are core and shell (technical rooms are ready, fire protection, basic lighting and airconditionning only).

Hi isicman.

Thanks for the info !
So I take it only these office levels have been leased and the rest are waiting ?
Do you have any more info on the other areas ?
Still working on the upper 2 residence areas I'm guessing ?
Any handover info ?
Any idea of when fully completed and open ?

Also - I have conflicting info on what levels are the chairmans office. I went with 153 and 154 in my plan. Is that correct or is it 152, 153, and 154 ?

Thanks man - nice to have someone here with insider info ...

The core-and-shell levels are sold like that. Is up to the owners to complete them based on what they want to do with them.

Great panorama there Gerald, as always.

Was a purpose ever determined for the floor with unusually transparent glazing, about halfway up the steel constructed section of the tower?

Very powerfull spotlights are located there. I think fotos of them being tested were posted here days before the official opening.

Hi Altin.
Thanks - so as I said those levels aren't leased yet, or if leased the owners aren't getting them ready yet.

Yes - I was the one who posted and answered that burning question.

The owners are the ones who bought them from Emaar (as core-and-shell)and are going to lease them either like that or after they will decorate them.

Emaar's job is done there.

Hi Altin.

Thanks - So I guess I can call the office area complete then - cool.

OK - property newb here ... - a question if I may to Altin or anyone in the know.
Are you saying some of the office space is purchased like a condo or do the owners lease it from Emaar and then sublet or re-lease (correct term ?) it to companies ?
My question pertains to the residence areas as well. The units are rented or leased from Emaar and not purchased like a condo or a house ?
Like, no one OWNS their little part of the Burj Khalifa - correct ?

Thanks
