Forgot to mention, that the top three occupied floors that would serve as Emaar's Chairman Offices were clearly visible due to the stronger lighting. The other floors had a much dimmer one, either intentionally or because they would be core & shell (in the case of the offices or some of the apartments)

Small (3.76 gigapixel) test 360 degree panorama from the island. Might be fun for people to get the site of the Burj in context.

You can view this in Google Earth too.

Hi Altin.
I wonder if they were doing part of the tower wide final test and commissioning with all the lights on at once ? The interior isn't complete yet IMO but the way they are doing handovers an area at a time means they won't be doing the final tests all at once so do what you can when you can.
I agree they are probably working on the chairmans levels.

I would have hoped for far more info getting out at this point on progress, handovers, and a completion schedule. There was more info during the structural construction - now, next to nothing. Back then it was easy for all to see the absurd completion dates were not feasable so they had to issue press releases issuing at least half truths. Now that all the work is hidden they can get away with saying nothing leaving the general public to think the project is completed.

aaaaargh ...
