thanks alot, this is cool, I allready knew about that one, but what I was more thinking about the slots just next to SZR, will they continue their "curtain" of skyscrapers down the road or will it just be green?

don't know what exactly you mean but I know they will continue building skyscrapers southwest at the Business Bay/Burj Dubai side of the road towards Safa Park. As for the other side of the road I'm not sure, but I think they will construct more skyscrapers as well in the future, the contrast between Jumeirah gardens City and the skyline is gonna be amazing!

The windows open in the John Hancock Center (457 meters) if the owners pay the extra money for them, otherwise they have vents that open directly to the outside.

Many units also have screened-in balconies. There's a public one as part of the observatory on the 94th floor.
