That will not be possible. No way anybody but residents and/or their guests will be allowed to roam that lobby.

I think only Burj Dubai deserves the title "Skyscraper" because it most certainly does.

I can't wait until it is finally finished.

I think Dubai is really somewhere I would love to be, lots going on, lots of massive buildings going up, I reckon its going to become the biggest City in the world by the rate it is going! I think Burj Dubai will be the main landmark for a good while but look forward to this Nakheel getting started again if it does .

Seems a bit futile the lake cleaning, it also doesn't look very professional.

There is nonstop cleaning of the lake for a month now and it is still as dirty as on Day 1

Respect to the cleaners, they are doing their very best. But regarding the equipment I have to say: "Emaar, its embarassing, dont cha think?"
