I dont know which pic is that but if you send me the photos of Ubora by pm, I can send you the original one by email or just give you the link.

Please get all you can - even if they are from the 705 revision as lots remain unchanged from the current one.
Appreciate the offer who - and nice shot of the BD from the plane.

Above is the level of detail on each of these pics. If anyone wants a 1:1 crop of a particular area, just ask away!

I have a clearer plan than this, so that means Fury has a more clear plan. Elevator list would be nice.

While you're all at it, it would also be good if anyone has speeds - like do the OB lifts run at 10 m/s or 18 as was talked about some time ago.

What happened to that talk of world records ? or is this also part of the "smoke and mirrors" that has been so prevalent on other websites ?

Thank you

Construction records ?

Has anyone tried to compile a list of the construction records set by the BD ?

Some don't exist any more--like "Highest structure without cladding" BD in May 2007 just before cladding started.

"Highest construction lift ( or any lift ) " From L159 up to T21 this past spring before the spire construction lift was removed.

Building with entrances from 3 levels - Concourse, Ground and L1. I don't know of any other building that has this feature.

These are just three of the less well-known ones.

Maybe the grand opening activities will generate a few more world records.

Would this be good for a chapter in the book on the BD ?

CTBUH Stats ?

When the CTBUH does official measurements on the BD, is it possible they could credit the BD with more floors for levels in the spire above L160M3 ?, especially if there is an elevator, or other function up there - like terraces, BMU's observatory ( glass on 21A ), etc. etc.

There has been talk that they might credit the 6 meters height of the concourse level, as part of it is outdoors and has an important entrance to the building.

Thanks

Armani hotel ‘will open this year’

Rebecca Bundhun

Last Updated: July 25. 2009 6:43PM UAE / July 25. 2009 2:43PM GMT The world’s first Armani Hotel will open this year in the Burj Dubai, its developer and the fashion house say.

Following reports this month that the world’s tallest tower would not open in September as scheduled, Viviana Giussani, a spokeswoman for Armani in Italy, said the Dubai Armani Hotel “is not opening in September but later, anyway by the end of 2009”.

Ms Giussani said the Armani Hotel Dubai opening “has simply been moved to a new date but this decision has nothing to do with delays or any kind of problem”.
The hotel occupies the levels between the concourse and the eighth floor, and levels 38 and 39 of the tower.

The final height of the building has yet to be revealed, although it is believed to have hit its maximum earlier this year at 818 metres. The Armani Residences, which consist of 144 one and two-bedroom suites, are between levels nine and 16 of the Burj.
“The first phase of the Armani Residences has been sold out and we continue to receive strong global investor interest,” Emaar Hotels and Resorts said in a statement.
The hotel is a joint project between Emaar Properties and the designer Giorgio Armani, who has personally designed the 160 rooms.

It will also have a nightclub called the Armani Privé, a spa, an Armani Dolci confectionery store and an Armani Galleria.
Despite the increasing number of five-star hotels in Dubai, Emaar remains confident the hotel will be successful.

“The difference lies in the fact that the Armani Hotel Dubai has been personally designed and conceived by Giorgio Armani himself,” Emaar said. “There are indeed luxury hotels in Dubai but there will only be one Armani Hotel.”

Emaar said a worldwide search to recruit 600 staff for the Dubai hotel had already started. Interviews have already taken place in Italy.
Analysts have said that designer hotels with global names were in a good position to succeed.

“I strongly believe that the key of success for designer hotels will be to partner with professional and experienced hotel operators, as Giorgio Armani did with Emaar Hospitality, in order to better differentiate themselves from the competition,” said Arnaud Andrieu, the vice president at CB Richard Ellis Hotels Middle East.

The opening of the hotel will be followed by the launches of Armani hotels in Milan, Marassi in Egypt and Marrakech in Morocco, and later in what Emaar calls the key international destinations of New York, Shanghai and London.

At a guess, there must be loads of train stations/airport terminals with entrances on multiple levels.
