Hi Christos.

The Club will be open to the public when it opensso its pool will be public.
The two on 43 and 76 are for residence use.
The one on 3 is for hotel guest use.

There are surely, many jakuzzis (sp) and hot tubs in various places.
Some units may have them but I don't think any have pools.

Let's be aware that the Burj does not own every record out there (up there).

I read somewhere that another building in Dubai will have 57 pools by the time it's finnished.

Jacuzzi's and hot tubs don't count.

I don't know if the plunge pools on the 23 Marina really count.

Leading Dubai property developer ETA Star has teamed up with the designer of some of region's most sought-after communities to erect one of the world's tallest residential tower with 57 swimming pools destined to become one of Dubai Marina's most impressive landmarks.


Team from ETA Ascon, ETA Star and the Hiranandani Group at HIrcon's '23 Marina' launch

Hircon LLC, ETA Star's joint venture with India's Hiranandani Developers Pte. Ltd. will build a 90-storey edifice, known as '23 Marina'. Hircon recently conducted a major launch event in Dubai for its customers and partners.

Towering to 380 metres, 23 Marina encompasses 48 exclusive duplex apartments on the top floors of the 90 storey tower. Each duplex promises a regal way of living with unique features such as independent elevator, open-to-air swimming pool, and private Jacuzzi. Detail to elegance is reflected right from the majestic lobby with a 6-storey entrance hall with advanced facilities, to the magnificent podium exterior design. The residents can enjoy the pleasures of a 5-star health spa, landscaped garden and jogging track, indoor and outdoor temperature controlled pools, children's pool, bubble bath and spas at 3 levels of the tower.

'ETA Star has strengthened its position with projects in advanced stages of development in the Jumeirah Lake Towers, Dubai International Financial Centre and Dubai Marina developments. With the recent launch of 23 Marina we are confident of further consolidating our position in Dubai's property marketplace. This tie-up with the Hiranandani Group is brimming with potential and expertise, bringing together the experience and professionalism that are the hallmarks of both companies,' said Abid A. Junaid, Executive Director, ETA Star properties.

23 Marina is an iconic waterfront tower that will bring upscale living and contemporary luxuries in its exclusive 2 & 3 Bedroom Hall Kitchen apartments and duplexes. The project has stimulated an enthusiastic response, creatingss excitement in the eclectic circles of Dubai, and is slated to be a parameter of excellence. Offering a capital opportunity for investment as also for an exclusive lifestyle to people from across the world.

Says Darshan Hiranandani, Director of the project "I foresee Dubai being the Monte Carlo of the world in a few years and our development has been designed to cater to that kind of clientele. 23 Marina is a combination of luxurious 2 & 3 BHK apartments and lavish duplexes, with an ocean view to relax the mind, body and soul. There are 24 storeys of duplex apartments each with a private plunge pool and an internal elevator. This concept is a first in Dubai. Also, minute attention has been paid to designing the breathtaking exterior glass fašade and the 6-storey high entrance lobby and other state-of-the-art technology and posh amenities. The intention has been to create a seamless experience of beauty, aesthetics and luxury.'

Hircon International has appointed leading specialists in various aspects of design, such as conceptualization, landscaping, lighting, space planning, architectural and interior designing, engineering and construction. Three of the world's highly respected and world-renowned names in architecture and construction- KEO International Consultants, Hafeez Contractor and NASA Multiplex LLC have come together with their expertise and professionalism, further adding world-class standards to the project.

23 Marina is situated at the heart of the excitement of Dubai Marina quay, just a two-minute drive from Sheikh Zayed Road Dubai Marina Interchange. Jumeirah Palm will be five minutes away, as will the World Islands, Emirates Golf Course, the 7-star Burj al Arab and other elite hotels, and Dubai Marina Yacht Club is within walking distance.

Some general skyline pics, including the Burj from a few days ago. The clouds in the sky made for the perfect backdrop!

Hi all.

Nice shots Face and Sale.



Some technical info for those who want to go further than ooh, aaaw, or nice building ...

Here's a great read on the surveying and health monitoring systems used on the Burj - the latest technical paper at the CTBUH.
Ground breaking stuff.

http://www.ctbuh.org/TallBuildings/TechnicalPapers

A couple things that caught my eye ...
- Height at the top of the concrete section (floor of level 156) can change by 150 mm in the span of 6 hours !
- the out of plumb tolerance for each level was 15 mm during construction.

It's not like this thread is short of burj pictures, a lot of them provided by the said gerald. If he wants to show off his nice new camera what's the problem.
