Hi there

what a wonderful thread!
The only thing I'm missing is a picture from the surrounding directly from above (I browsed the last 300 pages and haven't found any)
So I did it my own, with screenshots from this panorama picture.
(Unfortunately this flash page stretches the single pictures a bit, so on some places the screenshots don't match perfectly)


High Resolution

Are there real plans available? Due to the angle some parts of the ground are not visible because the tower maskes them.
I think this thread by Fury will have everything you ever need to know about the Burj Khalifa
I know Fury did a detailed compilation of the plans, but I can't seem to find them. The linked thread is probably more detailed anyway.

Two years ago I took interior pictures on behalf of the company which provided the wooden veneers for the residential areas. So this slideshow focuses on the wood panels, but you will get an impression of what it looks like inside.

Thanks Matt.

I believe my historical thread is far and away, THE most comprehensive compilation of info on the BK anywhere on the net. I take great pride in that.

Also, my plan and much more is included in the thread.
