I had dinner tonight in the Tower of the Americas in San Antonio and the restaurant is 550feet above the ground. What kept running through my head is how in the hell do these workers work like they do at 2100ft. I have a small fear of heights and I remember my legs wanting to shake as we got up to 400feet looking out of the elevator window.

What about the walking-distance between the parking-site and the building itself (conveyor belts?)

I was wondering about the parking situation as well for the mall and Burj Dubai. I wonder if Burj Dubai will have its own subway/metro station or something like that.

Google is your friend!

There will also be 16,000 underground car parking spaces, with more parking above ground.
