I'm sure this has been posted on here before, but it just such an awesome photograph (Taken in Feb 2010)! I could not resist the urge to re-post, ESPECIALLY as it features on the 'calendar images of 2011' list

Hi GTR.

IMO 2 or 3 months max.

- Residential handovers at 74% as of Feb. The 4 zones are complete, or close IMO.
- Recent pics show the corporate office suite complete, or very near so. Most of the rest of the office zone will be not be fitout by Emaar and are probably near finished.
- Recent news alluded to the health annex (The Club) being open soon, so complete, or close now.
- No info on the office annex (The Offices) but I would guess it's close to complete.

We should hopefully hear news on the residential handovers being done and 'The Club' being opened, but that's about all. We'll have to extrapolate the completion of the whole of the works from that.


Ray.

Do we know how many people (owners etc) are now living, working in Burj Khalifa at this moment? In few words how many units of BK are occupied now...
