You sound like a teenage girl saying everything's "lame". I thought people would find the article interesting about global commercial real estate not just the Burj. You haven't said anything remotely significant in a long time on this thread learn how to talk like a big boy!

I would like to know from someone else why Dubai approves all these huge towers, when they are sort of going against the basic development principle that "when you have a lot of land you build out (like LA) rather than up"?

Armani Residences offer the high life

With its unique appeal and luxurious offerings, the Armani Residences at Burj Khalifa epitomise the designer's philosophy of stylish simplicity

Quote:
It's ironic that Dubai's new benchmarks for uber luxury are havens of minimalism. The 144 swanky Armani Residences housed from levels nine to 16 in the Burj Khalifa epitomise understated elegance and are tastefully restrained in their colour tone and furnishing. With the fashion legend looking into every detail of the units, self-confessed fans of Giorgio Armani lapped up units during the launch, seeking the associated brand lifestyle and an address extraordinaire.

Hi all.

Hi Laden.

The shot is taken from the 'edge' of the city.
Our Dubai forummers can chime in ... more than a million people IIRC.

Hi Paris.

Your the official article poster - you find 'em all ...

So this guy lives part time on level 12 and leased (?) level 114 in its entirety for his office. This is the first confirmation on any tenant for the boutique offices. I suppose this is the type of tenant we will see for such exclusive office space, rather than a large firm taking many levels.

This tells me at least some of the offices are complete. By complete I mean shell and core by Emaar. Most if not all will be fitout by the tenant to their specs.

I'm sticking to the prediction of completion of the whole of the works in Q2 2011 untill we hear something that points to the contrary.


Ray.

This guy who lives in level 12, i am guessing that he rent the apartment; if i am wrong in that level its Armani residences and i suppose that is only for rent. Can someone buy an apartment there (in Armani residences)?

Hi Chris.
The Armani residences are (were - sold out long ago) sold just like the rest of the residences.
This guy paid 9.3 million Dh. for unit # 1218.

Hi Altin.
I did say more than a million ...
I should have googled it I guess - thanks for the info.
I was just trying to point out to laden that Dubai isn't small town Arabia ...

I gather you missed the clouds/fog show of the day before yesterday, from around dusk till late at night. I was around there, but had no camera.

Fury: I was ''talking'' at that same guy too.
