it is rather odd that the cladding facing the steel is even there.... perhaps they secretly have a plan to jack it up another 10m.... making it 828m? pure speculation

not adding to their reputation is it? but I don't care, if you keep up with skyscrapercity, you'll be the first ones to find out everything.

Probably their website is owned by an external company which doesn't have time to update it or something...

WOW - Topped Out!! Let the Party Rave On :DD:

Congratulations Burj Dubai & All Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Workers & Visionaries!!!
It has been one heck of a journey, and it couldn't have been as great, aspiring and excting as it has been without of course the passionate fellow skyscraper nuts to share, discuss and enjoy the construction of this most beautiful work of human imagination.
A Big thankyou to the dedicated photographers who have kept this project in the backyards of homes all across the world and also a special thanks to Fury (who at times knew more than the contractor themselves did) and Cul (for his first class, pinpoint accurate diagrams) for breaking this intricate and fascinating project into tiny digestible portions for us all.
Its been a great pleasure to be apart of this forum and read everyones posts and opinions and so a big thankyou to everyone here for making it a most enjoyable and interesting discussion/read.

Now, Bring on the Next Big Megatall!!
Cheers

Actually, 12.80 meters over half a mile

Gotta say after years of watching this grow, it's both awesome and sad to see it topped out. Can't wait to see it finished.

Cheers!

On the way to what? The sea?

The Bar has almost 270* view and if Burj Dubai is such an eyesore blocker then turn around 90* to the right (North-East) and you get this view
