It's a myth, it's probably on the ancient aliens show and that guy who thinks everything is related to aliens will tell you that aliens built it.

Hi Chris.

First Question.

Someone knows the answer, just not us.
The people who are involved in the project, the people working on the office levels, and some of the maintenance staff would know for sure. Since we are on the outside looking in we have to give an educated guess at best.
- Level 160 - This actually came from SOM even as late as the height ratification process. Any plans or pics I have show nothing of the sort though.
- An urban myth - This is actually the latest news from the press people. The article didn't name any credible proof of the claim though.
- Level 154 - Again a press report. This one was a pictorial report showing the (almost) finished office suite (on levels 152 to 154). One of the pic descriptions mentioned the mosque on level 154. Again there was no definitive pic showing what looked like a mosque though.

I put the mosque on level 160 in my earlier plans, then moved it to level 154 for my final plan, based on that pic report. I figured since they were up there they must have actually seen it. There had always been talk of the mosque from day one. Since the report calling it an urban myth came out long after my final plan, I never even considered that scenario.

Since my plan contains accurate info besides this one point (the mosque) I considered removing the label showing it on level 154 but I've left it in so far.
So I am sticking with my guess - level 154.



Second question.

I'm sure the office zone is complete as far as the developer is going to take it. I don't know exactly what levels Emaar will be taking beyond shell and core. I do know they did finish the office suite (levels 152 to 154) and for now I presume all the rest are shell and core.

I actually called the entire project complete as far as Emaar will be taking it as of July 01 2011.
- Hotel zone complete and open for business.
- All 4 residential zones complete and fully handed over.
- Office zone complete as I described above. I've seen no news on any tenant reno's progress.
- The Offices (annex) complete shell and core. Picture confirmation.
- The Club (annex) complete.

As of now (9 months later) the only thing that has changed is occupancy of the residential zones (I presume). There has been precious little info on tenants for the residences, offices, and the office annex. Why the health annex is not open for business yet (supposedly it will be open to the general public) is beyond me.

I remain steadfast in my belief that this fantastic project as a whole will be both fully occupied and profitable at some point in time.


Ray.

Being auctioned is an entire corporate floor above the 110th storey.
