Here's what i mean, the circle section
That's also what I mean with the spire. I can't understand how people can say and write that the spire starts at 643 meters!

Official height is what counts now, BD is a whole including its spire, i will definitively look uncomplete without it...

I dont think so. 818 (or 819 ) is way enough. It beats Taipei 101 by more than 300m

OoOohm my GOD!!!



If this is true, this is madness i cant believe it! This is the tower of almost 3450ft!! It is for this reason that Burj Dubai is still pouring concrete on top!

The fight has started!

look at those camels, the poor beasts get tormented by buzzing flies
what do the camels do there, I wonder? Those aren't actually wild camels???

edit:
uh... the pics of the Burj look good too

OK, floor count once again. I am sure that I am right this time
Floor above the lowest tier on the right is L144. Than up 4 floors and floor above tier on the left is L148. On the side of the core where 4 square openings are, last level below the formwork is L154. Above that are only L155 and L155M (both hidden under the formwork) So top of construction is now still L156 (end of concrete if they haven`t changed the plans) Interesting as hell

Yes, I'd agree! So Burj Dubai is still on level 156. But still there's a chance that the concrete part will go on without steel frame. I wonder if already the first steel beams or parts of the top crane have arrived at the site. If not, it might only tell that there's still enough concrete work to do... I guess the 7 missing levels of the tier 12 wing will need at least two weeks alone, for instance.

By the way, that's a great shot by Imre showing the north face, which is taken less frequently on close-up views than the sunny south face.

And the second pic of your street panorama confused me at first... before recognizing that it's also inverted, like the rearviewmirror shot above. But of course thanx a lot for this one, Imre, and for all the other great pictures, too (including Old Town Resident)!

Would be nice
