Hi all.

Great shots Sale - thanks.

A couple of points / questions if I may :
- Elevator problems again ... could just be maintenance ? When both are running do they use one for going up and the other for going down ?
- Broken glass ... What is your take on the cause ? It is obviously safety glass and the low panes being used in place of kickplates should be even stronger - no ?
- Looks like the top 4 sunshades are completed on "The Offices". That job is taking a while - I guess it would as it looks like the workers have to climb up the scaffold ?
- Looks like the tent structure is coming down ? What was its use again ? I think it was a bit of an eyesore / afterthought myself.

Great shots of the lower structure and the landscaping.
What a fantastic looking edifice this thing is ...

Sorry if this was posted before, but the Burj Kalifa is already getting destroyed in various ways in media like this game: I think it's a good sign because it means that the BK is already worldwide recognized as a iconic building. (how many times did we see the Statue of libery in NY getting bombed, iced, burned, burried, eaten, zapped away, etc etc in movies )

Think lift isn't switched on to save money.

Tent was for the football?

They are using it as a Ramadan tent now, before it was for World cup.

It was being dismantled on Thursday night.

(I should stress I'm talking about the temporary tent, not the Burj itself )

Thank god, otherwise Christos would have had a heart attack and some other people tears of joy ... even 'elliot' the ontarioan would return, saying: I told you so ...

Thanks for the replies on the tent structure guys. I saw in Sales pics it was coming down. It was kinda in a strange spot - didn't compliment the Burj very well.

Yeah, too bad there are just a couple of real buildings there, and the rest is just imaginary structures loosely inspired by Dubai architecture.
