730m~

I was watchin this: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=1bOd_v...eature=related and it reminded me how BD's final height is a secret. Emaar could be laughing at this thread right now; as we're presuming the final height is around 819m.

It's only our best estimate, we can only know for 99.9% sure until Emaar releases official info and that's when we know for 100%.

Yeah, on top of the completed floor. Too bad there are 2 more partially build floors on top of them and a huge metal tube in the middle going even higher.

I took some photos of Burj Dubai and other buildings earlier this month.

I think these are the best ones:

Hi,

I am one of the lurkers who every once in a while look what is going on here I moved to Dubai in February and live in the Emirates Hills Area, but when I drive to work on days with clear skies I can see Burj Dubai right when I leave the neighborhood - standing there. Sometimes at night you can even see every single window shining like small beacons. I just looked in Google Earth, it's exactly 18km away.

Anyways, I am a real fan although I don't know much of the technical part (not that I'm not into technical stuff, but what I read here sometimes sounds really professional). I've made plenty of pictures of Burj Dubai throughout the last months, some of them you will find on my website at

http://www.quetschluft.de/dubai/metr...metropole.html (only in German, sorry).

I especially love making nightshots with a tripod. In thext couple of days I will make some more pics, of course I'd love to use the opening of Dubai Mall to maybe get a little closer. Does anyone have good hints where to go for nice pics? I have to admit so far I never "found" a way into Old Town... everything seems to be construction site with closed gates.

Thanking in advance and just as excited about experiencing the "finishing touches" like so many of you.

Cheers
