Hi all.

Hi Helghast.

Not all.
The first full elevation I've seen thet has the revised taller office annex (called 'The Offices' now). Level 7 typical new to me. A couple others are bigger versions of what I have. All added to my collection.
Many thanks for posting.

Hi Gerald.
That B&W shot is a good angle. It makes the city look very dense. Thanks for posting.


Ray.

There is a company in Pennsylvania from which I've bought many replica buildings. They currently offer BK in three sizes:
http://www.replicabuildings.com/proddetail.php?prod=208
http://www.replicabuildings.com/proddetail.php?prod=376
http://www.replicabuildings.com/proddetail.php?prod=209

They're pricey, but they look awesome.

Well, one can see the mist of Niagara Falls from the (lower) observation deck of the CN tower, which is at a height of 346m, and covering a visibility distance of ~70km.

that'd be alright I will be there in march and have a look.. would've been just more exciting to know!

@QuarterMileSidewalk: thanks for the hint, I know that page and you're right. too pricey. I hope I find something at the location.

great shots have been posted here, I hope I will be able to find elevated locations like those to take some pictures

Hi all.

Here's a vid of an Armani hotel signature suite # 3817 from level 38 from fatonysantosa.



Great view ...

EDIT:
While I'm on the Armani theme ...
Check out the revamped Armani Hotel Dubai Site
Impressive layout showing their stay, dining, event, and retail facilities.


Ray.

Beautiful materials are used in that Armani suite!

Just don't trip and fall. Anywhere you land, you're likely to poke an eye out or crack your skull on a sharp corner. And be careful not to carch a kneecap on the corner of a table. There doesn't appear to a rounded edge anywhere. Just sharp corners and edges. There are even regulations against such sharp corners in work environments in some countries.

But it sure is beautiful to look at!
