@Fury: Those 75 units in Burj Khalifa are not the ones in Armani Hotel right? We talking about the rest apartments, units in BK...

Actually on the top part there are as many lights on at night as ever, however the area with the apartments on top of the hotel is dark at night, indicating work is completed there.

bizzybonita, the time lapse is simply AMAZING!
the reflections in the facade, especially from 0:39 to 0:40, are breathtaking!
thanks for posting!

Hi Christos.
Yes I believe they are referring the residential units besides the Armani Hotel and the Armani residences. They are saying 876 units in the hotel residences (area 3), residences (area 4), and the luxury residences (area 5). The 160 units in the Armani hotel (area 1) and the 144 units in the Armani residences (area 2) are in addition to the 876.

Hi Altin.
Thanks for the info.
I guess the work will be continuing into 2011 ?

Hi Gerald and Sale.
Much more info please.


Ray.

I've been wondering if those cymbals are balancing in a "genteel way" and if that movement make the cymbals produce some kind of ambient (and relaxing) sound.

Water drips onto some of them. All very calming.

Short vid coming up, but the sound quality ain't all that.

More evidence the inaururation definately was no grand opening.
And no offices are completed.

Meanwhile, Canton Tower is opened. The one part that is not completed is pod ride.

Is Canton Tower completed in any sense that the Caliph Tower is not?

Can Canton Tower qualify as the highest completed building in the world on grounds that Caliph Tower is incomplete?
