Someone () needs to post a fairly recent vertical pano of the BK. Around 5000 by 1000 or 10000 by 2000 or so that can be dloaded. I used the giant render (~5000 by 1000) I have to make a poster size pic using 7 landscape printer pages taped together. Looks good and I don't have the print capability to make a large poster.
Thing is it is only a render. I have large pics that would work from various stages of construction but I want to make one with the cladding complete.

Hi Imre.
These rental rates are from an owner who bought from Emaar and are now renting out units ?
Any idea what levels they are renting ?
I may want one ...
No ... really I want to use this info as another marker as to what areas of the BK are completed.
But I really would like to have one ...

Similar to this one you mean?

(That one's going to be printed out around 10 metres high and exhibited in a museum BTW.)

No new ones of that kind of quality for a few months - need to wait until summer's over.

Rents are so cheap considering that the owner still has to pay the service charge at around 55 per sq.ft. thats of the rent of a 2 bedroom at say 1400 sq/ft AED 77k.

Not much of an investment I would say in the short term.

Emaar Properties records 122 per cent growth in half-year net operating profits to AED 1,656 million (US$ 451 million)

• Half-year 2010 revenue increases 59 per cent to AED 5.538 billion (US$ 1.508 billion)
• Second-quarter net operating profit is AED 896 million (US$ 244 million) and revenue is AED 2,652 million (US$ 722 million)
• Highlight of the quarter is opening of Armani Hotel Dubai, setting new standards in global hospitality





Dubai, UAE; July 22, 2010: Marking significant gains in the company’s comparative financial performance over year 2009, Emaar Properties PJSC recorded half-year 2010 net operating profits of AED 1,656 million (US$ 451 million).

This corresponds to a 122 per cent growth over the half-year 2009 results, underscoring the effectiveness of Emaar’s strategy to focus on its core competency of value creation by building premium real estate master-developments in key geographic markets.

The revenue for the first six months of the year was AED 5.538 billion (US$ 1.508 billion), recording a growth of 59 per cent over half-year 2009 revenue of AED 3.481 billion (US$ 948 million).

Net operating profit for the second quarter ended 30 June, 2010 was AED 896 million (US$ 244 million), 18 per cent higher than the first-quarter 2010 net operating profit of AED 760 million (US$ 207 million). The net profit subsequent to considering the non business charges for the quarter is AED 802 million (US$ 218 million), a 6 per cent increase over the first quarter of the year.

Revenue for the second quarter recorded a growth of 37 per cent over second quarter 2009 revenue of AED 1.940 billion (US$ 528 million).

The highlight of second quarter 2010 was the opening of the world’s first Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. In addition, the handover of units in Burj Khalifa started during the quarter with approximately 24 per cent handed over until June end.

In the process of implementing the strategy of concentrating on its core business, Emaar transferred the Hamptons International business in the UK, Europe and Asia to Countrywide at a consideration, which was similar to the purchase value of the business (in Sterling terms) it acquired in 2006. In addition, the Hamptons agency’s business in Middle East and North Africa was retained by Emaar to support its key geographic markets. The company also decided to transfer the management of Emaar Education’s schools in the UAE to Innoventures Educational Investments, a Dubai based premium education provider.

Mr Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman, Emaar Properties, said: “Over the past months, Emaar has undertaken a series of strategic initiatives to focus on value creation for our stakeholders. Our emphasis now is on strengthening our core competency of developing premium real estate projects, and building on our assets in promising emerging markets. This concerted approach has resulted in further strengthening our financial fundamentals, despite the challenges of the global financial climate.”

Mr Alabbar said that Emaar’s revenue model has effectively diversified with an increasing share from the rental & hospitality operations over the past year, a trend reflected in the half-year 2010 results.

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
You can go from Level 123 to level 122 either:
by stairs (which you can see on 234sale's night pano)
by lift (the same linking Boutique Offices 113 & 114 to the transfer level 123)

Hi Gerald.
Nice - I already have that one in my faves.
Cool to hear a giant version is going in a museum - good on ya.
I am looking for one 5k by 1k or 10k by 2k that can be dloaded so I can make a homemade poster.

Seems a bit high for service charges - no ? (what do I know ... )

Hi Imre.
Yes I would want to be able to open a window also. I guess perhaps they were worried about a reverse stack effect if alot of windows were open at once ?
In Bankok they need to hang a thousand air fresheners in the central A/C unit ?

Hi isic.
Thanks for the info.
I looked closer at Sales pano - the stairs are obvious alright.
Not sure what I was thinking in my prev. post on the route to the At.mosphere restaurant ... Of course one would take the lower of the double decker OD elevator to 123 office skylobby then another elevator or the stairs down a level.
