No, Emaar has not published it yet.

Am I the only one who thinks that actually what happened is that the "soft opening" was delayed until December and full completion will be only in 2010?

FYI the buzz on the web is that now the QE2 will be moved to South Africa as a floating hotel and not remain in Dubai. Yes, most sad for the great old girl.

Working on a 3D model -- hope to have it finished by the time the cladding is finished on the real building!

O.k. here are 2 shots without the curtain wall. I'm taking all my dimensions from Richard and from that Armani Floor Plan. So, big thanks to Richard there and his diagrams. Ignoring one of the wings for now.

Yesterday was terrible. I was seeing people wearing masks or covering their mouth with clothes/scarfs. Today seamed fairly good though (for a summer day), still very hot and sticky humid especially in the evening.

Yep, I've heard about that. Nakheel =

Next they'll be telling us they're planning on popping the old girl into the lake by OldTown where there are apparently excellent views of the mighty Burj.
