Only a few from the hotel and such; sadly incredibly few that are this close because you have to be off the pedestrian bridge to the mall (about a 15 min walk from the BK station) to even get close to the tower on foot. Of course with a car it's different but I did not happen to book any stays at the Armani (had to budget the trip you know). But give me a few more months and when I edit each day proper I'll be sure to post what I have.

So many great photographers on this site / thread though! Thank you for the compliment.

*edit* _Hawk_, what building is that? Opera House? That front wall looks so deceiving at the perspective it was shot. Wow.

Thank you, BKF. I didn't know about that development.

BK is one of the towers, where it`s really difficult to show how high the building really is. It looks nice and beautiful but the height looks as impressive as 2IFC i.e.

I dont think another building will even come close to this structure in terms of aesthetics. Truly a beauty.

Did anybody notice those spots where it looks like the cladding panels are missing? Does anyone know what it is? (You can find the spots on the upper half of the tower)

Can anyone tell me how lively this building is? I mean, I am sure there is a lot of activity going on in the hotel part, but how rented out are the offices? How much traffic is going on around the tower, are people living in the appartments and such? Or is it just an empty building, in which people only have invested?!

The residence part is going well, but i don't think that is the same story for the offices section

Hi all.

That great shot is from 2010 / 11 / 05 - long before the interior was completed.

The conversion of levels 112, 125, and 148 for event space, observatory sky lobby, and observatory respectively plus level 12 of 'The Offices' (annex) for event space, speak volumes on how empty the office areas are.

The Burj Club (annex) finally opened in 2016.
