the one next to the dubai mall is the annex with office space inside...

About the swimming pool and stunning views you get from there:

what about inside the burj dubai? You can have an appartement and look at beautiful babes in that pool all day long. (or was it an office building pool?? )

Why, even if it was an office building they will (the babes) really be hanging around in their smart business suits?

Great night shots
I see lights from inside Burj Dubai -low floors-. I think it's time to see some pics from complete apartments and more...

Spectacular show, must look incredible from far away.

I also want to see a beam of light shooting skyward from the tip of the spire once the construction is over.

I have a question:

I'd hard for me to guess how much of the spire is inside the Burj, and how "deep" it's already build inside there.

Could someone who knows that, draw it over a photograph of the top section????????? (so the spire as it is now before the jacking up)

thanks!

You will not get any better than the diagram that Culwulla has posted a few pages back, unless you have access to the 3D CAD used by the designers IMO.
