I can't believe they've already almost finished a model apartment, looks beautiful. One day I'm buying a unit.

Well... if he was there... maybe he knows somebody... who knows somebody... and so you can get sth. I made the expericence in the past that you just have to ask and make some moves to get cool things working.

But yah... maybe he has taken some pics on the top himself... Well everybody has a mobile with camera today... so if i wasnt told not too i'd take picture after picture... and by any chance he had a real camera with him..

So please just ask, there is nothing to loose by asking!!


THX AGAIN IMRE!!!





PS: Is there really a gab between the cladding and the wall so you can look down to other floors??? How are they gonna stuff it?

And what will be on the location of these steelbars???

Can sb mark where that swiming pool is on a picture of the burj?

It seems that some of the developers are realizing that this site is the place to go for people who are interested in Dubai projects, and are starting to take advantage of it...first Imre's helicopter rides with Nakheel and now this . This just goes to prove what Imre's reputation has become

Truly unique shots Imre. Thanks very much for capturing such a valuable part of the construction process with a view few ever will get to see (inside while U/C).

I'd be tempted to mail you my camera if you ever got the chance to go back inside lol.

I know this really isn't the right place to post this, but all the Dubai fans in the world section come here so I hope you can bear with me because I am sure some of you would like to see this image.

This image is from GEOEYE, taken on November 21, 2007. I am sorry about the seams in the image, due to curvature of the earth and distortion, I could not align the images perfectly.



The shadow of the Burj Dubai is in this image so it is not COMPLETELY off topic



Edit: Due to the size, it will be scaled down for your monitor. After you open the thumbnail, click on the image for full size.
