the base of burj Dubai looks huge!
just a fact. a year ago the mighty burjD was at lev132 or 476m tall. so its grown 200m in 12 months. not bad, considering its the highest part and dif material.

You'd arrange the jets in the spiral shape at the bottom and vary the height that each shoots the water accordingly

Non-related question: In regards to the 3.75m thick concrete slab which the tower sits on, how long did it take to pour all that concrete? 2 days?
Couldnt they have put the Ob Deck at Level 139 (503m) which has a terrace the same size as Level 124?

no it doesnt have the same area as lvl 124, and there's 2 Tiers being used for the skydeck. if they where to use lvl 139 there's only 1 Tier, which has half the area

- The observation deck is level 124 - the first level of tier 11.

Level 139 is the first level of tier 12.

Both do have the same size terrace but 124 has more inside floorspace and is taller at 6.0 m. verses 4.8. Also the terrace on 124 faces the Dubai mall and 139 faces South.

OTR, is it just me or is the ground at different heights at the left and right of that last picture? Does one of the entrances start at ground level and another at concourse?
