Hi Eddy.

Me thinks your friend is a bullshitter ...
Security always has been very tight during construction and will be even more so once fully open for business - as it should be for such a high profile structure.

The general public can't go anywhere above level 124.
Once the office space is occupied, workers of the tennant companies can access up to level 151 if that is their level.
The Emaar chairman will have his office on 152 to 154.
Only BK maintenance workers will be above that besides workers of companies involved in some aspect of the structure and very exclusive VIP's.

Hi SSC.
The landscaping has been complete since May.

Someone offered to take your friend up the Burj Khalifa for a fee?

I've met quite a few people in Dubai who are always more than willing to be taken up the Burj Khalifa for a fee, but it's pretty rare to hear of it happening the other way around.

Hi spectre.

True the basejumpers did get through.
Also a fellow forumer got to the podium for some great shots of the pinnacle waiting to be hoisted to the top - some of the best "Johnnie on the spot" shots ever.He and I know who he is.

Thing is, and the point of my prev. post is no one approached them and offered to take them in for a fee ...

There have been many photogs over the years who posted from inside - they were:
- workers involved with companies contracted to work on the Burj.
- VIP's who were invited in before the ban on site visits caused by the basejumpers.

Imre was one of those VIP's who got in on 2 occasions before the ban then was invited up with contracted workers involved with the project after the ban. Still the best 3 photo spreads from inside the structure yet.

Hi Sale.

Nice shot.
Good to see the big lights are permanent on section 21A.
Yes VRS they can point all around.
