Anyway the first floors are always slower then the others, even when you are at ground level.
not only that, there literally 600m in the f-in air

Will the top of that steel structure "swing" in the wind? I think that CN Tower is "swingin" by about 1,5 meters in the wind. Anyone have got some info on that?

Regards.

Shure it will, all high structures swing more or less.

Ive read conflicting information from various sources giving figures between 1.5m total and 1.5m in either direction. However, considering the BD is designed with amazing resilience to oscillation caused by wind, it could be that the figure of 1.5m total is correct.

You will find a number of files on BD and its relationship with wind here. Just scroll down past the pictures.

If it keeps raining like today, the Burj Dubai will be the 'Ark Dubai' because the Spire will be the only thing left above water!!!

Dubai, the fastest growing city in the world

Dubai will have a total of 270km of tramlines by 2020, which will be distributed on seven different lines spread across the city to boost the public transport system.
