The Burj Dubai is designed to easily withstand an earthquake significantly larger than the local tectonic plates could possibly produce.

I'm not buying the spelling mistakes of Vanhenrik anymore.
I always had my doubts,

but the spelling mistakes in this post clearly shows that he's messing around.
Why spell a name, like boeing, also wrong?

Why would someone still misspell a simple word like "with", an 8 or 88 year old person with no english knowledge would spell that word correctly after all the hours behind a PC just reading skyscrapercity forums like vanhenrik.........

So, vanhenrik is a fake! a troll!

This is actually a very good pic for the people who are not that familiar with the Burj Dubai area, you can see a lot of progress:




Yellow: Boulevard is progressing, they planted some palms, leveled the road, etc., and the entry from Doha Road has been shifted, the elevated road can be finished this way
Green: They started excavation and construction of the underground parking garage beneath the boulevard
Light Blue: Some residential towers will be ready to rise soon!
Dark Blue: Once the Dubai Mall is finished we will see a lot of progress there, I assume. Right now the area is used for storage and logistics

There's definitely happening a lot!

Agree it is also one of my favourite places in Dubai, cause it is the last remaining part of a big lagoons which was destroyed in the 1970's. The whole area, including the mangrove forest, is now protected as a wildlife sanctuary.
