It looks like the top floor only fit for a room.

First of all, the area up there will not be habitable, and second for a better perspective check the pic below where a worker around 1.7 meters tall is also shown: http://img246.imageshack.us/img246/9...solt030pk8.jpg

Hi everyone ! As you can see, I'm new on this fantastic forum.

I'm visiting skyscrapercity for 2 years, and I finally decide to register.

I would say about Burj Duba´ that it is a fantastic skyscraper, and I'm following it construction for 2 years also. Fantastic updates as always Imre !

Note : I'm very sorry for my bad english, i'm a young french guy and I'm still learning it.

Amazing update Burj Dubai gets more and more better
The structure is almost to finish... when they expect to completely finish the tower?

Anyone has pics from inside? I want to see them too

Hi all.

Great update Imre.

Another big day for BD pics - 330 for the collection.

Just over 19,500 pics of this mighty structure.

Does anyone know where Bikes is ? Is he gone on holidays ? I made a new ver. ( 4 ) of my plan - just minor changes - included the spire sections of tiers 18 to 23. Also some minor wording changes and a few more prints. It grew from 11 to 12 pages. When bikes is back ( ? ), checks his email, and updates his site I will let you guys know ( if anyone is interested ... )

I noticed that dark area when OTR posted pictures on August 3rd (post #8855) and wondered at the time if it was smoke damage or just a reflection/shadow. So the fire must have happened on or before that date. Will be interesting to see if that cladding gets replaced. Hopefully a good window cleaning is all that is needed.

magnificent!!!!!!

long time no post (my posts have not had any constructive purpose anyway)but i'we been here everyday anyway (like most of us?)

but i would like to thank everyone to keep this site up and going, and OTR that has come in strong in imre's absence (spelling???) even though imre is still going strong

one question
does anyone have the thread for the building in these pics with the "bubble" windows??????
have seen it before but cant relocate the thread, holy damn
interesting building, not sure though if it is cool


and, to stay on topic, I am feeling a bit fuzzy in my mind to start witnessing the spire construction, seems like ever when this topic was first brought up, years ago, and the spire seemed to be in the distant future. loving tha speed of construction, and that this fire thing has been brought under control without major damage.



altin,cul,imre,otr,fury, and the rest of the bradybunch = THANX, you make my days so more bearable
