Sure it's possible. There are people, who don't know what to do with their money, so they'll buy appartments and houses for fun I wonder what it would be like to live in the upper floors of BD. Can u even see the ground when the air is full of sand and pollutions? The sunset & sunrise must look fantastic tho.

No those are there just for the looks and the impression of safety I don't see the idea of putting safety nets that are too weak to catch anything.

Sorry for the double post.. I couldn't find the button for removing it.

Burj Dubai as an excuse

I realized the BD is a great legitimation to post any kind of pictures here in this thread. Because of the sheer hight of the tower it's very easy to make an arbitrary picture somewhere in Dubai and as long as the BD is taken with it (no matter how small), it is valid to post it here.

b.t.w. I do like far distance shots as well as close-ups.
