Hi all!

I am a fan of skyscrapers and of course the Burj Khalfa! I created a live-wallpaper for android with the Burj Khalifa, can I put a link to it in Google Play here?

You are completely right. It should be moved to a 'completed' section. Lord knows, you get your arse handed to you from the mods if you dare accidentally post something in the wrong section.... yet this building is as completed as the Chrysler building or the EBS. Shouldn't be here.

Yeah, they'll hit you with some tripe about it being 'refitted' inside, but skyscrapers are continuously being refitted.

It was officially opened 3 years ago. Let it go.

Oh..and shhhh.,...lets not talk about the slave labour used to build it. £2.84 per DAY for labourers who often had their wages and passports withheld. Lets just wank ourselves silly because another girder was erected.

Which floors are empty, why are those empty? Are those just individual tenants doing its own renovations?

Yeah, it's ostensibly complete. But on a forum focused on skyscrapers, doesn't the World's Tallest Building rate a place of honor? Also, leaving the thread open allows for comparison of under-construction supertalls to the current "gold standard" - at least in terms of sheer height.

I say leave the thread open, and sticky it to the top of the page! When a NEW World's tallest takes the Burj Khalifa's place, then it can be closed.
