Such an unbelievably magnificent building! By the way, i was looking on google earth and noticed that Dubai has another large skyline several miles to the right of the main one, I was just wondering why its like that.

That was the closest free beach available that could be used for freehold property developments.

By "right" you mean North, West, South, or East?

There is Sharjah skyline in the North East, another city/emirate starting almost right after the Dubai Airport.

And Dubai Marina / Jumeirah Lake Towers 15km to the South West.

there are two other, smaller skylines: around Dubai Silicon Oasis, and Dubai Motorcity.

828 metres? The building is only just over 300 metres so that bike must have a rocket attached!

It was an error on the reporter's part - The poster made it clear that the BAA is 321m tall and not 828m.

if it's really,the mosque is also a highest observation deck only for muslim,which above 600m(I think 158th floor is higher than 600m).

How is a pfaying space an observation deck? If so, the highest observation deck would actually be the tip of the spire at 828 meters

But not everyone can go to there,and the spire is too slim,only 1.2m.

Hi Plil.

There have been various accounts of the mosque over the years.

1 - Level 160 - the fourth highest named level
2 - Level 154 - the highest tenant level
3 - The mosque is an urban myth.

In my plan, I went with level 154.


Ray.

So will be Mosque on Burj Khalifa or not? And as we talking about the floors, the offices are complete now?
