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
The apartments and office space in the tower, except the chairman office and the Armani Hotel serviced apartments and hotel rooms, were sold as freehold just as 234sale said.

I believe the only space available for lease by Emaar would be on the 2 annexes building or in the main tower if not yet sold or repossessed by them. Sub-leasing is illegal in Dubai and can happen only with special permissions.

This is true, I was asked recently for ideas on how these could be leased, Hamptons / Emaar is reponsible for them.

Gerald will have a gigapan up later, mine failed due to wrong exposure, but we will go up again.

G, I'm think we should go up the Islam Financial Towers Instead..

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 ...

Any news about the restaurant planned for L122 ? It was to be called
"At.mosphere" -- weird spelling

Is it part of the hotel ? There's been no news lately.
How do people get there ? Lower deck OB-lift to 123, then what ??


Also does anyone have any recent photos/vids of any of the public places in the BK - lifts, lobbies, shops and stores etc. etc.-- they have been open now for nearly 3 months one would think this is almost old news now.

Have any movies or TV shows been filmed there yet ?

Any news - please and thank you

There will be a restaurant in Level 122 of BK? Sounds interesting... i would like to know if there is a possibility of that (a restaurant on that level).

Hi Library.

The official site still says At.mosphere will be on level 122. I would think the route there is from the residential side - express from Ground to 76 skylobby then 76 to 122 ? Not sure if it's open yet.

As for pics / vids - I collect all I can but even now the Bk seems to still be as shrouded in secrecy as it was during construction (as opposed to now - during inauguration/construction - ). It's like taking pics or vids is frowned upon ... I would of thought more people would take them anyway, but alas ...

You've probably read that it is likely no one has moved in yet. Perhaps there will be more pics/vids hitting the net after more areas are completed and occupied in late 2010.

There has been 5 (?) or so construction documentaries. The last was a few years ago. The public thinks the BK is "open" - we know different. Not only is it not occupied (except for the hotel) I think it is not completed even now - 7 months since inauguration. No problem - good things take time. Maybe we will see more documentaries in 2011 and beyond after fully completed and occupied / open for business.

Good to see your still around. You and me seem to have like minds.


On another note ...
I'm not sure the hotel suites are completed on levels 38 and 39. I've poked around on the reservation site and it seems those are not available. I did notice some but not all are available in August. This is not to say they aren't completed for sure as they could be booked up on the dates I checked but I lean towards not fully completed yet.


On another note ...
I read on the official site the chairmans office is the "top 3 levels" - meaning 152 to 154. I've updated my plan accordingly.

Hi Chris.

At.mosphere is a restaurant located on level 122 of the BK. 122 also has a hotel club and a residents club.

The construction plans just say commercial besides the clubs. I didn't bother trying to add all the restaurants as I only know what level some are on and also, space constraints.

Here is page 7 of my plan to help illustrate.
