Not to poop on the Burj Khalifa-wank party here, but it's a very odd looking structure, and very, very street unfriendly.

No surprise, it was designed by SO&M, same firm that designed the Sears Tower...another ugly building that's hostile at street level. BUt that was the 1970s. There's no excuse for buildng street-hostile buildings in today,
