Come on, we need someone to dump a super massive collection of BK pics before its time to archive the thread. I think the sticky should stay for at least another month

stairway to heaven?.. even at this moment it's hard to believe that a building like this actually exist.. this is the symbol of the future as people imagined 50 years ago, only that flyin' cars doesn't exist(yet, hehe).

thats it i am moving to Dubai. i will rent an apartment in this sucker (burj kahlifa). I am sure i will have no problem getting work. I do Stucco, surface cement pools and all types of exotic cement finishes. i also do rock and water feature sculpting, such as sculpted sandstone that appears like realistic badlands and such. i am an artisan who specializes in realistic appearing stone features. i have some talent at this type of work and not just anyone can make cement look like realistic stone. i have sculped cliffs, mountains waterfalls and more. i really want to go there and work for a while. not permanently, but for a year or two would be nice. i myself, have,with my brother's, hand troweled the surfaces of more than 400 swimming pools throughout western Canada. i have done thousands of stucco contracts both commercial and residential. if there is any work to be found in Dubai, well, i will find it. hahaha. so what i am saying is i want to work there, is anyone hiring? i follow the rules of the land with perfection as well, I have never broken a single Canadian law. So it would be with UEA if i where to come. I really would love to give UEA a touch of my talents. to contribute to its greatness.

The "Rate our talls"-section could be what you mean - unfortunately those threads are mostly spammed with comments about how many points the people rate the buildings instead of discussions on the buildings..

There's a big difference between archiving this thread and unsticking it..

BTW, seeing the huge moon on Saturday I was asking myself if the usual guys would be out and about taking advantage of that. Apparently they did ... so great capture Gerald.

The areas around Burj Khalifa complex are not completed yet, to start plantation as you said; instead in the area of Burj Khalifa the plantation (grass, trees etc) has started.


Sticky or not sticky its the same: Burj Khalifa its the best, great and so far the tallest building in the world i also agree with malec

Yesterday, I read that rents on Burj Khalifa is reduced in one of the news:

http://allabout-dubai.blogspot.com/2...r-drop-in.html

So cheers up and good news who wants to live in the tallest building.

I also heard that Saudi is trying to build taller building than Burj.

Check: http://allabout-dubai.blogspot.com/2...-built-in.html

Level is I think roughly 145.
Not only one is missing, but 4 others there are obviously broken and replaced by a temporary arrangement. And then is the issue that the building is NOT fully completed. They are still working on the interiors of residential and commercial places as is made obvious by the lights on at the upper half of the building.

Bottom line: Un-sticking it was indeed premature.
