Actually it is Emirates Office Tower. Rose Rotana (333 m/1,093 ft) is shorter than Emirates Office Tower (355 m/1,163 ft).

The only time I physically benefit financially from it is when the last 30% down payment is made upon completion which is all profit.

So, to answer your question...will I be moving there....not until 2032 when the title deeds revert completely back to me once the contracts expire.
Until then all I get is 2 weeks per year for maintenance.

So it looks like I've got the floor at OTR's place 'til then!

Can I visit??

Jeez, i can see why Nadal was a bit worried in the lift. It's a long way to go out in the openand especially if it's your first time.

I've probably said it 8 times already but I really love your diagrams. 100ft is alot. You fall from 100ft and most people die.
