I remember looking at these pictures and not knowing whether it was sunrise or sunset. It feels better to know where everything is in Dubai now so I can tell.

Thanks for the pictures AltinD.

Hi Cul.

That is a page from my old (ver. 2) Burj Dubai Plan.

If you go here you can get ver 3. It has the use for each floor and the correct pour times and steps for the concrete section.

Also unless they change the plan 160 Mezz. 3 is 6.4 meters high. I think your progress diagram is the best out there Cul. I save each and every one.

It's been a few days since imre has posted his shots of the steel construction. I guess he's taking a break . I bet there will be a big difference between the feb 14th shot and the next close up he posts. I'm looking forward to seeing it!

I'd love to visit Dubai to see this - I'm a big fan of what they're doing - but what do people think of stories about people with 0.0002grams of drugs on the sole of their shoe being imprisoned for 4 years. I'm shocked that the UK government hasn't demanded the release of these people. Imprisonment for this is insane!
Dubai is SERIOUSLY damaging its tourist industry (that they care so much about) when stories run in UK newspapers about people going to jail for this!!!

and this
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7253514.stm
proving it wasn't a once off...
maybe Beckham or Roonie need to be imprisoned before the government steps in!
