I know those picture are 3D buddy. Thats why I made the statement, that some of the real one look 3D as well. Plus I wasn't talking about those pics anyways. Reposting old pics is a waste of space, like talking to you is a waste of time.

I think the tiles look awful. When does a "lake" ever have tiles?

Well its obvious the lake is filled to the top now. The fountain looks a bit “funny” with these "things" sticking out of the water, but if they keep in mostly ON they will be barely noticeable. It’s good that I am not the man paying for it cause these workers would have to re-do the whole lake,(depth and color wise) could have done better. But let’s no jump the gun here, we are yet to see the final product. I hope by then I’ll change my opinion.

Hi Library.

The roof of the office annex was more or less complete before they started this new revision. Only Emaar's hairdresser knows for sure why they are doing the additional levels - - but I assume they need more office space.

I'm interested to see if they add more than 3 levels.

I was under the impression that the office space was from 112 to 143! From what I am reading above am I correct in saying this has changed?

Does anyone have a link to the total breakdown of all the floors?

I drive past this building most mornings and it never stops me feeling an overwhelming feeling of amazement

Lake looks really superb!
The room with BD models (234sale pic) its inside Burj Dubai Tower? Because the interior design looks like it...
