This is awesome news. I've been waiting for a new class of tall structures. During the forum debates previously I liked megatall over hypertall so I'm happy to see the council went with megatall. I would have been OK with 500 meters being the line but 600 is fine by me.

Burj Khalifa - Megatall.



Cheers
Ray.

Burj Khalifa as the tallest tower on earth, deserves to be on that list.

Hi all.

I have taken Fury's Historical Burj Khalifa Thread as far as I can for now.

I will finish it once I make a decision to call the whole of the works completed for the project. I have been waiting to hear some confirmation (that may never come) but I am thinking it is done at this time. I will probably call it complete soon regardless of confirmation.

I have been working on the thread for 3 months. It has 372 posts with 497 pics, including every drawing I have. I have incorporated my plan and all my plan comparison stuff as well.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.
Anyone interested, the thread is here.


Ray.

Today (Dec 14th) was one of those times with amaizing sunset/dusk light. The reflection on the tower at dusk was amaizing, as it was illuminated ... enough to make me record a video while driving.

(If it ain't your style, just ignore David Coverdale I was listening to)

Hi all.

I want to take a poll of all our major forummers from Dubai and some other major players.

Imre, Altin, Desert, Gerald, Sale, Face, Cul, and any others I missed.
I will PM Jan and Vito as well since I'm not sure they read this thread daily.

1 - Do you think the whole of the works of the BK project is complete ?
2 - Any reason for your answer either way ?
3 - If you think it is complete, when do you think it was done ?

Here are my answers:
1- Yes, I think it is completed
2 - Simply because of the timeframe based on the few pertinent pics and articles over the last year.
3 - I think it was complete a few months ago but I'm willing to set the date at 11 12 31 (YY MM DD).

I haven't been there in 1½ month, but there were no lights on at night on the two annexes.

Ray
I'll ask my chums at Emaar next time I see them as to whether or not they consider it complete.

It's definitely complete as per the definition that seems to be used 'round these parts when compared to other buildings. Simply because parts of it aren't fitted out (and when it comes to the office space, some fit outs could surely be months or even years away), doesn't to me mean it's incomplete.

For the lulz ... or because there is a reason for it, as explained from time to time.
