Hi all.

It's been a while since we had some good close ups of the top. I wonder if any steel work has been done ? Or any more of the small half wings been put up ?

Cladding is moving along albeit slowly. The office annex is the only thing we can see progress on at a reasonable pace.

We need some interior shots via site visits as I'm sure great progress is being made in there.

The exterior stuff and the crane disassembly proceedure will have to be done in the next 5 months - before the soft opening on 09 09 09 I would think.

Here's a 3 minute, 10 second video of the Burj Dubai.

(You can see it on the right hand side of the video):

(sadly, YouTube doesn't really do the original video justice, but you get the idea)

Theyre getting beter at co-ordinating the fountains finally... the lighting is alot better now, only being on when the waters first pushed up, instead of all the time.

Certainly a beautiful display but the height is certainly nowhere near 150m. I wonder if that was a false rumor or if the height will come later? I'm guessing the highest seen in this video is only about 50m at most.

I've seen the Bellagio in Las Vegas' one before and I can assure you that the bigger jets are hella loud. I can't imagine how these ones can be ( being bigger than Bellagio's )

Chicago has ~1000 highrises, dubai has 400 plus 300 under construction. After about 10 years, I think that Dubai will equal Chicago in number of highrises.
