----------------------------------------------------------

I felt a new thread for this project was necessarily because of the insane amount of non-stop drivel being posted in the previous one. The entire thread is filled with either people posting crap or people complaining about others posting crap and it's time for that to end.
Of course there has been a massive positive contribution as well, loads of renders, 1000s of photos, inside info and so on, I just think it's time to give this thread a fresh start.

We're going to need some new guidelines, otherwise we'll just end up with the same old drivel filled thread again so here they are:

1: When posting lots of photos at once you can have a few large photos in the same post but if you have a lot more the rest should be thumbnailed, not everyone has an ultra-fast connection. To do this you can go to http://imageshack.us and do it there. A model post can be found here
2: Quoting other people's pictures should not be done (unless there's a good reason for doing so). If you want to comment about someone's photos you can quote their text or just refer to the photo but don't repost it.
3: Reposting loads of old photos will not be allowed unless the photos are reposted for a good reason (ie, to explain something) or just happen to be insanely good (such as the night shot in this thread).
4: Please do not post trivial info that everybody already knows, or exists just a few pages back (ie, "I think the building will have about 160 floors", "when was the last update?", etc).
5: Please limit the amount of "great updates" type posts. If you want to make such a comment you can but make sure a lot of people haven't said similar things right before you.
6: Any post complaining about another member will be deleted, if you have problems with someone else PM the mods and we'll sort it out. This was a real problem in the previous thread and will NOT be tolerated this time.
7: If you post someone else's photo then please give a link where you got it from or else mention the creator's name.
8: When quoting multiple posts please combine them all into one post rather than creating lots of posts in a row.

There are probably some more I could list but can't think of them off the top of my head. They're more like guidelines anyway rather than black and white rules but you get the idea, ie, more quality vs quantity.
The best thing to do before you click the "submit reply" button is read back over your post and ask yourself, will people be interested in reading my post? If the answer is no then it might be better not to bother posting it.

great views - heard that the traffic jams in Dubai are second only to Los Angeles - does not look like that.

Live in Burj Khalifa - for just Dh80,000 a year

As property prices have declined in the UAE, Burj Khalifa is no exception

By Parag Deulgaonkar | Published Wednesday, October 13, 2010


Live in Burj Khalifa - for Dh80,000 a year. (FILE)

Renting an apartment in Burj Khalifa, the tallest tower in the world, is now more affordable as studios are being leased for Dh80,000 a year compared to Dh110,000 in August.

"As property prices have declined in the UAE, Burj Khalifa is no exception. However, units owners are hanging on to their investment and preferring to lease than sell at lower prices," Adam Farani, Burj Khalifa specialist, Better Homes, told Emirates 24|7.

The Dubai-based real estate consultancy is offering studios on rentals of Dh80,000 per annum; one-beds from Dh120,000, and two-beds from Dh190,000.

Better Homes is currently handling over 40 apartments in Burj Khalifa for residential sales and leasing.

"We have two to five people viewing apartments everyday. We do qualify the customers before taking them to view the units. Mostly the ones to rent are senior officials of companies. Owners too are quite flexible and are ready to take even 12 cheques."

Asked by when can prospective tenants move into the apartments, Farani said: "Due to the high security at the tower, it take a little longer than usual to move into the tower. One needs a photo ID to enter the building."
Better Homes has not increased the commission charge for leasing Burj Khalifa units.

"The commission (five per cent) and deposit (Dh5,000) is standard across all apartments in Dubai."

Seventy-five units are already occupied in Burj Khalifa. There are 28 studios, 260 one beds, 460 two beds, 110 three beds and 18 four-beds.

This website had reported in June the service charge residential units in Burj Khalifa was set at Dh52.77 per square foot for 2010, while charges for Armani Residences were at Dh78.63 per square feet.

Hi all.

Thanks for posting PG.
Yet another new unit count - 876. I have an old source of 927. I've read as high as 1040. (These all don't include the 160 hotel units, nor the 144 Armani residence units - these numbers are acurate I believe) I'm leaning towards this new number as they seem to know the breakdown of the different size units.

Anyway - 75 units occupied ...
7 or 8 % depending on which number of total units you go by ...
Near 11 months after the inauguration ...

More evidence the inaururation definately was no grand opening.
Nothing new here. I don't see a bunch of lights on in the night shots anymore - so I think the work must be nearing completion on fitout.


Ray.
