this gives you a dif perspective about top section.
the upper section has been lengthened since this render was done.but lower steel bits are same.

BTW-the passenger lifts to lev154 -162 start at lev 138.
think of the structure above 162 as a spire with an internal staircase.
just happens to have encolsed levels and lots of then (40).
Burj dubai project quote the spire as the "pinnacle" ,which rises through the spire structure.
confused yet? ha
Basically the top 40 or so floors of the burj dubai will be like the top 15 floors of the Empire State Building.

WTF !!!

Skytower is banned ?

For what ? - showing some pics that he may or may not have thought were for real ? Must be more to it than that ...

I know there are some here who had disagreements with the guy but no one here can argue with the fact that he contributed more info on the Burj Dubai than anyone else.

I keep tabs on alot of structures ( with the Burj Dubai being my favorite ) and I have far more info, blueprints, etc. on the Burj than any other almost entirely because of Skytower.

I for one hope this banning is not permanent .....

I think the reason they banned him was for when he said that he put false information on this site for marketing purposes. That's such a blatant breaking of the terms of service I think they had no choice. At any rate, he was banned right after he said that so that must have been it.

he can be very scary, he came to lecture at NEPCON in Shanghai in 2004. somone dared question his thesis on future wireless solution standards and he verbally humilliated him in front of 8000 people. after that nobody dared question him. he later controlled the whole market and trod on the smaller developers and took all the contravts.

Any news on the construction process?

I saw just 30 minutes ago, one of the cranes holding what seams to be a new column (for the next floor) just on top of the floor below. I hope the next one is really starting. (it's the crane on the lake side)

Altin, I just had a look but they must be sinking new steel into the existing structure height.

Rafal, your right we are lucky. Most of the pictures posted do not do the structure justice until you are next to the BD where in reality it is totally amazing.

Cant wait for the balcony view in six weeks then I can also wake up to this every morning. Maybe I shoul;d point one of my security cameras upwards also!
