Needs quite a bit of work to tidy it up but my word, what a great shot!
Was that you just volunteering to sort it out for us???

Golly - those inside pictures remind me of very old photos of the inside of Salisbury Cathedral.

Hi Gerald.
So free copies of your book for all your SSC homies ... ?


Ray.
Was sure I read 2011, but guess you're right....

This one appeared in the Metro (in London) after the storms in early January 2010......

And although this isn't THE burj, it is A burj and is one of my favourite Dubai lightning pics

How many pools does the Burj have altogether ? We know about the one on top of the Spa (Health annex) and the one on the 76 Skylobby.

These pictures show at least two or three more.

Who can tell us how many in all, and what floors they are on ?

Thank you

Where to see Fury's latest elevator chart ?

Could you please tell us where to see the latest version of the elevator schedule - the easy-to-read one done by Fury ?

Is there a downloadable version ?

Also, is there an index of where to see all these technical details of the Burj - in one place ?

Is Burjdubaiskyscraper still being kept up to date ? - there were some new updates to it just last month or so.

Thank you

WTF is that POS?

Just a quick plug (hey - it's BK related because of course the Burj pretty much dominates the Dubai skyline!

My 45 Gigapixel shot of Dubai has been updated! Details below -

http://dubai.posterous.com/dubai45gi...and-printed-20

Yesterday was the first anniversary of the taking of this image. To celebrate, I have re-rendered it to remove practically all stitching and ghosting errors.

The result is a MUCH better image.

Link above is to a reduced size version.

This is going to be printed 20 feet wide by 4 feet tall, and will be unveiled at GeekFest Dubai on Thursday 28th April (details here: http://fakeplasticsouks.blogspot.com...est-dubai.html).

Do come along if you want to see this piece of photographic history

The first of a strictly limited edition of just 10 prints of this size will be auctioned, with all proceeds going to charity.

Burj Khalifa is the next Empire State Building. It'll be decades before it's surpassed.

Hi Library.
AFAIK there are 4 pools.
Level 3 terrace
Level 43 terrace - half out on the terrace
Level 76 terrace - same as above
Roof of 'The Club'

Yes - all in one place - on my computer.

I can post my elevator schedule again if you like - there are 4 additions since the last time posted. I post it in 4 screenshots of the excel file.

Bikes site has much info. He had my plan and more of my stuff on his site at one time. He was forced to remove some of it ...
I wonder if, now that the height is CTBUH ratified, if some of my more technical stuff could be put up again ? Probably not ... The site is only updated every few months now anyway. It is the best collection of BK info and pics on the net.

Some other notables:
burjkhalifa.ae
burj-khalifa.eu
dubai.armanihotels.com
atmosphereburjkhalifa.com

Except of those pools which are public for the owners and guests of Burj Khalifa, is possibility BK to have more pools, private in some apartments and suites?

Woah, sale, where was this taken from? Ubora? Looks out of this world. Strange, as it would seem to be taken approx. 320-350m above ground. Also - what is that lit up area to the right of the pic?
