Hi sx.
I haven't heard of the OD closing again. Sale mentioned one of the 2 elevators was shut down a few weeks ago but I'm sure they're both running now. Have fun and be sure to post some pics.

On another note ...
It was Emaar that reported all the units selling within 8 hours of going on sale. I agree that it is 24 % that have made their final payment.
While I'm sure at least the lower 24 % of the units are fully fitout, final payment doesn't necesarilly guarantee that. Nor does it mean we have 24 % occupancy.

I wish we had an insider who could fill us in weekly on which levels/units we are up to in regards to :
- fitout / completion of the work
- occupancy
I'm presuming we will hear press releases every now and again on the final paid up percentage.

Love this edifice (just in case anyone couldn't tell ... ) but hate the veil of secrecy that surrounds the entire project - right from the early planning phase, through the main construction phase, to the current late construction / inaugurated phase.
I realize this a project of this height and magnitude will probably never be done in North America in my lifetime, but if it was, the info and credible press releases would be pouring out from many sources.

Can't have my cake and eat it too ...

I'm not going to whine too loud though. I have more info, drawings, and with all the pics to compare it to - knowledge on this project, than any other one that I watch. Did I mention I love this thing ...


Ray.

I'm sorry people but this building is f-ing ugly! Sure, the cladding looks good but the building itself is hideous!

the guys aloud to have his/hers opinion on a building not everyone has the same taste.
i think the tower is pretty impressive but at the same time i can see why some people would not like it.

Emaar Hospitality Group (EHG) has announced plans to open the “highest restaurant” in the world in January 2011.

The restaurant will be called Atmosphere and will be located on the 122nd floor of Burj Khalifa...

122fl! That's basically the height of Willis(sears) Tower. According to Fury's plans.
