recently, I don't know. I remember appartments were sold in few hours 2 years ago but ask to Emaar Properties to be sure.

at first it sold out in 8 minutes reaching prices of up to 20,000 AED per sq ft and 15,000 AED for residential.

Prices there now are in the range of 2500 - 3500 AED per sq ft..

4 1/2 months to get all cladding completed and exteriors finished. It's doable. Just.

Those are going to be pretty tough to stitch together 234
It's actually quite amazing the number of pictures I've taken of the building that I was absolutely convinced were "true" vertical when pressing the shutter button, but on review were at an angle - even when using a tripod.

The Burj is so tall, that just the slightest angular offset from vertical is magnified enormously by the time you get to the top of it (visible in Darth's earlier photo too).
