Do you think the Burj Dubai could have been built to where it is at now by a gang of women! eerr no!

Not being sexiest or anything, but us guys get the job done
It has nothing to do with getting the job done. It's about building giant phalluses.

I'm a big tennis fan and came across this article about a lucky guy this morning. I guess when you are the second best tennis player in the world you get some benefits.

Interiors renders question

Gentlemen,

Can you tell us what areas the 5 interior renders represent ?

These show very high spaces with many stairs.

Also, where are the 8 escalators to be located ? We have not seen any mention of this yet.

Thank you

I think Federer is a sissy when it come at heights. He comes from the Alps and bought his apartment in Dubai on the 13th floor (Le Reve tower in Dubai Marina).

Are they working on finishing the interior in the lower levels yet? What about planning to open the building in stages similar to Trump Chicago?

after lev162, the towers structure takes on the name of "spire' ,mainly becuase the 40 levels or so are not inhabitable., yes there are still "levels' but they cant be occuppied and are just spire access for maintenance ect. they have stairwells right up to the top. the actual "spire" which is known as the "pinnacle" with the Burj dubai project, is approx 140m in length but starts way down at tier20b or 662m.The pinnacle will be jacked up from this level and telescoped until its reaches full height of 819m.some 50m above the last enclosed section of the "spire" which is tier27/768m level.Alot of people suggest that tier27 is the "roof" of burj Dubai, mainly because you can actually stand in the small terrace area which is a bit bigger then a bath size.It has a parapet so it will be safe.above this is the visable section of "pinnacle' which will rise the last 50m to full height!
this 'pinnacle" will also have internal ladder access all the way to aircraft beacon platform at the 818m level.
i hope that sorts a bit out. ha

I believe building laws in Dubai do not allow an unfinished site to be open to the public. The project must be finished before any people are allowed into the site.
