Why the observation deck is not made at the highest possible place but only at 450 meters?

Burj Khalifa hasn't the world's highest observation deck!

Hi all.

Hi Chad.

I would like an answer to that as well.
Also:
- Are the residential handovers complete ?
- Is the office zone completed as far as Emaar's obligation is concerned ?
- Any tenants in 'The Offices' (annex) ?
- Is 'The Offices' complete ?
- Is 'The Club' (annex) open yet ?
- Is 'The Club' complete ?

I'm sure we will hear about The Club opening, seeing how it is open to the public. As for the other questions, we need some insider info. It is almost impossible to see through the veil of secrecy that surrounds this project.

I posted a year ago that completion of the whole of the works should be 6 months at most. I am beginning to find it a bit bizaar that this project is still not complete.


Ray.

Dear all. Are there any resale opportunities for a two bed on the Burj? What are the approximate costs? http://goo.gl/dsFGo

Hi all.

Hi Sale.
Nice shot. Went flying, did we ?

Hi Chris.
I'm sure all 4 residential zones are complete too. It's the other questions I'm interested in right now.

On another note, I see the spambots are getting more intelligent. This last one even picked up on my opening line - almost.


Ray.
