WTF are you people talking about? Dubai is a city which's history started earlier than that of NYC, Paris and other major "accepted" cities all around the world. There are evidences that in the citydistrict of Al-Quasis 2000 before Christus have already people lived. Dubai. In the 19th Century Dubai was famous for their pearldivers and so on. It's not that Dubai has NO history. The most forumers who are complaining about Dubai forget the fact that they are just modernising the city for 30 years and that they need time to build a world class city. Look at the area around the Dubai Marina, how much they have acchieved there in just 4 years.

And the comparission between Dubai and Las Vegas is ridicoulus, does Vegas has something like a "Las Vegas international finance Center" does Vegas has something like a WTC?

People who constantly complain without any thoughts to do about what they are complaining are very very very annoying!

When is the Burj Dubai going to be fully completed and opened to the public?
I'm looking forward to its opening

This reminds me of ... me, climbing the carpark of 21st Century Tower for the same motives, when perfect it would have been from one of the apartments.

Correct A-TOWN boy , the Burj has been put on hold for a year or two until Dubai can get the last 1 million it needs to finish off the small antena ball on the very top.

Well, actually the first completion date was 30.12.2008. Then they delayed it till mid 2009 and now it is 20.12.2009, which is not very likely either, but we will see.

The last official date I've heard is 09/09/09. Have you heard the December as an official date or is it just speculation?

I heard 09/09/2009 is the "soft opening" and 20/12/2009 the "full opening"

Will this "soft opening" include the opening of the ob-deck or will this happen with the big openning?
