ARMANI AT THE BURJ

The first Armani brand hotel is expected to be opened by the first quarter of 2009 and is under construction as part of the Burj Dubai development. The Dubai 'Armani Hotel' will include 175 guest rooms and suites, five restaurants and a spa, covering more than 40,000m². Alongside the hotel, the Burj Dubai will also offer 160 luxury residential apartments all designed by Giorgio Armani and fully furnished with a specially designed line of products from the Armani Casa home furnishings collection.

The schedule of Armani hotel openings to follow Dubai will be Milan, London, and New York along with the first resort. Giorgio Armani said, "This marks the beginning of a new chapter in the Armani story. In this our thirtieth anniversary year, I cannot think of a more energising prospect than bringing my philosophy of style and design to a collection of hotels and resorts.

"Today, more than ever before, fashion has expanded to encompass our way of life, not just how we dress, but where we live, which restaurants we eat at, which car we drive, where we go on holiday and which hotels we stay in.

"I strongly believe that for those people who enjoy the Armani fashion and home furnishings collections there will be a real enthusiasm for the possibility to now stay at an Armani hotel or resort. This continues our ongoing strategy of building the Armani universe into a comprehensive lifestyle brand."

Hope this answers your question

23 km is only about 10 miles

I live 26 miles northeast of Sacramento, the tallest scraper there is 129 m/423 feet and you can clearly downtown from that distance.

As for the Burj, if the ESB can be seen from 80 miles away, it can probably be seen from 200+ km away

10 miles is 16km...

On top of that there is a limit how far BD can be seen due to the curvature of the Earth surface... I remember its below 200km limits

Yeah, if you looked at my apartment complex someone could easily ask "where is everybody?" I love how Burj Dubai makes an impact on the horizon. I can't wait to visit and I'll probably wait until 2010 to do so. I hope American Airlines starts flights to Dubai by then.

Indeed, and with an aircraft fleet whose average age is one third that of American.
