Looking at the BMU of the Burj Dubai, it seems that this device it's on the terrace floor. That means that the others will be located on that place instead inside mechanical floors?

After that, there are only ladders to the very top of the pinnacle, where there will be just enough room for one man to stand on top of the Burj, maintenance people mostly, maybe the sheikh. (Envy those who will)



ps. BMHT already made it clear
Long tiring climb.

At airport now heading back to Dubai

I understand absolute chaos at the new defense roundabout as food courts etc open in the new Mall!

Looking forward to some zoom pics tomorrow morning.

Hi all.

Nice shots Mark.

Soon we will have 2 more of our regular photogs back.

I see that Mark (tThye) is using Imagehost. Just so all the photogs know, if you use anything but Imagehost and your pics are very large the thumbs you post are linked to originals that are resized smaller as per the policy of whatever site you use. So if your originals are giant you may want to use Imagehost so we can see them in all their full size glory.

Official Worlds Tallest Building handout from Emaar July 21 2007. Pic is from July 15


Hey guys, since we don't have many new pics coming in, I thought I'd post this to remanence old times. Doesn't seem that long ago but looking at it makes it look ancient and makes you appreciate how much Burj Dubai progressed.

you can go there and take photos yourself, only if you're fine with being held in mini prison for few hours.

ahhh you're so luck to be in South Korea.

Burj Dubai in the second photo looks really compressed and fat, as its not to scale of course.
