Here is a 15 page PDF with all the info - another reason I like Imagehost - any file type, not just images - up to 100 MB.

Wow, can't wait to see the lights, sounds definitely spectacular!

Boy do you need to grow up and realize what life is about. There's no comparison between the two different types of icons you mentioned. The ones in Dubai are nothing more than expensive bobbles for some of the world's richest people. The others are symbols of a civilization, what they worshiped and how they lived. In a few years Burj Dudai will be a forgotten relic of an opulent society, not a lasting symbol of civilization.

Are you retarded? Not to diminish the great organisational and engineering works of the Burj Dubai and the Palm Islands, but the symbols of Macchu Pichu and Christ the Redeemer are far more universal and monument to civilisation than a luxury playground for the super-rich.

Ok machu Pichu but what makes ther Rio statue that special? It's just huge, that's it ... and considering that just half a billion people pray to him (or 10% of the World's population) doesn't have that much religious values either.

Playground for the rich or not (seams you are just someone jelous to the "have allot") they are still engineering marvels.

sorry for the layman's question, but could anyone tell me when the construction is going to reach the highest point?

Your same question just 2 hours earlier was already answered, why the need to re-post it?

I think you need some lessons in proper human interaction. Acting like a jackass 24/7 can have unhealthy consequences in the long run. Not to mention that continuing to drag this thread off-topic with your childish bitching isn't exactly in accordance with this forum's rules, either.

Okay okay, I guess this was my fault for jumping on an idiotic post. Let's get this thread back on track....



Completion (including fit out is Summer 2009).

Tops out 15th December I think???

BTW, how is the internal fit out going? Now that the facades are sealed on lower levels, have they started installing the HVAC and electrical systems? What's the news?
