^ The more growth and progress there is, the more plants there will be; since its a desert environment, there are no plants to displace.

Hi King.

Thanx for the vote of confidence.

You are correct in the fact the small wings give the cladding a curved place to attach. Though one can walk out on to them through the openings.



Hi redstone.

The bottom level in Imre's shot is level 153 - Boutique Office and the one above it is level 154 - Boutique Office Mezzanine.



I think I read somewhere that both levels are for emaar's chairman. Level 154 is the highest level occupied by tenants. This top tier of the concrete is tier 15 (levels 152 to 155 mezz.). Here is 2 prints of tier 15 - the first showing the concrete core - the second showing the approx. size.





Still quite large up there over 560 meters high.

That picture posted by Oasis-Bangkok is from late 2004 - early 2005.

Diagram looks like T18 to me

You wanted T 15 charts to make your point, and quoted them, but the diagram showing here looks like the start of T 18 to me - L 160 M3.

Since it's right in front of me, I have a question - what is the machine called BS/4 - which goes just from L160 to L160 M3, according to what charts I have seen, but I probably havn't seen everything you have.

Is this the "Spire maintenance elevator" noted on BurjDubai.com, or is that reference just another piece of their nonsense ? This is probably the highest permanent elevator-to-be in the world, although the construction lift in use now up there goes even higher - looks like up to T21 in the photos.

Thanks for your knowledge and help
