Exposed Spire



Is the exterior cladding finished above the steel structure? If it is, the exposed section of the spire against the cladding will make for an odd look.

We didn't top out this year, but hey, leaving 2008 at 800 m is a great feat.

And to our friends in Dubai: hope you enjoy the last 2h of this year, and have a great 2009.

Cheers,
Leo (still at 15h45 here in Brazil))

I hope there will be a casing that covers the spire on the back of the cladding.

Emaar Properties to start a new chapter in its growth story in 2009, says Alabbar



Dubai, UAE; December 31, 2008: Emaar Properties PJSC will start a new chapter in its growth story in 2009 by evolving strategies to face the challenges posed by the global financial crisis and exploring new opportunities, said the company chairman Mr Mohamed Alabbar.

Mr Alabbar said that while several challenges await the property sector in 2009, there are also an equal if not greater range of opportunities. “Emaar will face these challenges with confidence and we will focus our energies to adapt to the changing circumstances. Our strategy of business segmentation and geographic expansion has proven its effectiveness, and we will continue along this path.”

In 2009, Emaar will mark a significant milestone with the opening of Burj Dubai, the world’s tallest building. The company will also add two more properties to its Emaar Hospitality Group portfolio – The Address, Dubai Marina and The Address, Dubai Mall.

Year 2008 was marked by two landmark achievements for Emaar Properties – the opening of The Dubai Mall, one of the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destinations; and The Address, Downtown Burj Dubai, the first hotel under Emaar’s own hotel brand, The Address Hotels + Resorts.

Emaar also strengthened its hospitality & leisure roster with the opening of the Dubai Marina Yacht Club, and its shopping mall business with the Dubai Marina Mall. The company further consolidated its geographic expansion, with new projects unveiled in Egypt, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, India and Indonesia.

So sad looking through all those Imre's photos, the last ones of 2008. Unless denis or OTR does last minute ones.
