Looks like the tower's seriously bending backward.

All the structural work will be complete by then as well.

The smoke is there for already a long time, because of an exhaust of the crane or something. Looks like some cleaning has been tested there. Good to see it didn't damaged the facade.

I haven't found any news on the sales front in a long time. How are sales in the Burj Dubai? Sold out, price ranges, number of homes available?

Is that going to be an actual floor one could go up in, at the very top beneath the huge metal spire? Anyone know the dimensions of the top 5 floors?

Are you talking about the floor with scaffolding, or the very narrow part attached to the spire? In case of the first, it looks bigger than 2m² to me... In the last case, I didn't think those were actually floors... I'll try checking CULWULLA's diagram, or try finding the floor plans posted somewhere in this huge thread...

EDIT: as I can tell from CUL's diagram posted 15 or so pages back, the top floor-like segments are just tiers but not floors, these end where you can see the scaffolding (floor 179?). Nevertheless, maybe it's possible to go up those last tiers. Anyone?
