The reason for the Spotlights and the lighting display is that Emaar are giving a presentation to Armani this evening. Not permenant spotlights as suggested placed in a lake of water....eh!

Look to the sky’s of Dubai as the Burj will be on display.

Must be time for a stage payment due to Emaar?

Hi all.

Here is the print showing the shape of tier 15. I have drawn the shape of the concrete core as it is now. The North side is the side with the 4 openings that has some winglets poured and where the crane is removed.

UTTER ERRANT NONSENSE

yeah... id say it again utter errant crap this tower... what is it with the human race and this babelier aspiration? this is a sheer waste, and it looks like an antenna... there have been more beautiful attempts at creating high buildings in our history.
RECONSIDER ITS AIMS... REDIRECT ITS GOALS AND EMBRACE SUSTAINABILITY and Dubai is way too hot(temperature wise) for this errant nonsense. Dont they have any architects there?

i think it's becasue of the steel frame that's all around the tower is in the way. so it may take a while befor they move it then replace it with windows or those might be actual mech's themself

Good eye, they are certainly doing something in the way of cladding those mechanical floors. It'll be interesting to see what they do there.

Tell them to get a subway then. Towers are a good idea in hot weather.

You all sound the same, like a broken record spinning and spinning to a no-end.

Jamesd3G: I see your sole other contribution was to the Lagos, Nigeria thread and your quote "the issue of megacities is an oppurtunity for us, the inhabitants of these cities to rethink proffesionalism. the population of the third world city lagos".

Could I beg upon you to send your bank details to me immediatly as my Great Grandfather The Vanhenrick of Holland has left me a vast sum of money and I need to give you 90% of it.

Is it true that if you had a Burj in Lagos it would be stolen over night and used as Juju dolls?
