I am meeting with the Executive Director of the CTBUH (Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat). I know they make the heights official (in a nutshell) on tall buildings such as this one, and they were mentioned a few pages back on Burj Dubai's official height. Anything you guys want me to ask him?

Hi all.

Nice shots Altin.

Here is a labelled shot from Imre. This is a day for the history books guys.

We are Topped out !!!



This has been a fantastic structure to watch grow and even though it will not grow any more there is lots of work to do yet.
- Finish up tier 22 sections.
- Finish attaching the small wings of tiers 22 and 23 to the pinnacle pipe.
- Finish all the cladding.
- Do the crane disassembly proceedure.
- Finish all the work at the base.
- Do all the interior finish and fitout.

We still have near a year to go before completion. I hope site visits are allowed again so we can see some of that interior work.

Thanks to all you guys for the vote of confidence - makes me feel good as I put alot of thought and time into this great structure. I don't consider myself as an expert - just fairly knowledgable on the subjects that interest me.
Thanks again.

Hi Birdboy.

Probably to early but if he is aware of the 3 entrances all at different levels does he have any idea if the Concourse level will be included as it's entrance does open to "grade" on that side of the structure ? Also Cul has answered this but doesn't hurt to ask again - will the beacons be included ?

Thanks.

I'm so happy, I'm gonna cry of joy.
Well, now they have to finish the inside part of the building, I think.
When is the official opening of this monster?
