Just saw it last week and it looks awesome. It also looks pretty much complete, any idea when it'll be opened to the public? There is supposed to be a viewing gallery near the top level.

Well, from this angle the burj dubai doesn't dominate the skyline as much as would be expected from a building over twice as tall as any other in the city. The WTC dominated downtown NY "more", so to speak.

Wow.. must've been really a pain to stay outside and 700m from ground to get the Burj cleaned up for the opening. But may we expect another sandstorm to pass through Dubai again?

I doubt sandstorms can reach that high.
