Don't forget after something goes up 100% it only needs to go down 50% to be back at the same price! Many times people get confused on this issue. You only can compare the true dollar value change directly, percentage changes can be misleading.

Yeah, but unlike you he has invested his own money and owns the place he's currently living ... a place with a Burj Dubai view from the balcony, nonetheless.

Is that one glass panel in the middle of the pic scratched? looks like white intestine.

Probably cracked the glass and they taped the piss out of it so it wouldn't break further and possible fall out. Just a guess.

Those open "windows" in the cladding with the blue stuff (#14) is not the first time to see that in Burj Dubai

What I hate about this Burj is that it looks the same from all the angles.

Man, it's frustrating waiting for this to be finished.... the cladding positively raced up the sides when there were whole acres to be covered, now there's just the pinnacle it's almost ground to a halt... Come on guys! Get it done already!!

Also, any news or rumours about when the BD's first tenants will be able to move in?

Don't panic. It's not finished yet.

The plans (see earlier posts in this thread) show that when it's finished, one side will be painted green, another pink, and the third will have a 2500 foot tall picture of Homer Simpson scratching his arse painted on it.
