They'll probably sell tickets for guided tours for a VERY HIGH price.

2275 feet = 693.42 meters

They've already passed that point. What are you trying to say?

No height increase yet, where I can imagine this will be a level that has considerable reinforcement of the steel surrounding the jacking winches.

It is possible to see Iran from the top of the Burj Dubai!
I used this website.
http://www.heywhatsthat.com/
Discovered it today.
Go to the location of the Burj Dubai, and change the elevation to 819m/2686ft above ground. (You can change between Metric and English under the map) then submit request.
after the website has finished loading the information, turn on visibility cloak. anything that is red can (theoretically) be seen from the top of the burj dubai.

Didn't felt a thing @ Dubai Media City so it must be quite minimal I guess.

WRONG ANSWER!

I watched the documentary about Burj Dubai in YouTube, it is up to magnitude 6.0 on the Richter Scale.
