Agree. The setting and depiction of the Burj Dubai have many faults. Hopefully they'll get it more accurate in time for the game's release!

I don't think they really care to get Dubai accurate as it is now.

Emaar to complete exterior of Burj Dubai in weeks

Emaar Properties said today the last glass cladding that will complete the exterior of the world's tallest skyscraper is ready for installation. Arabian Aluminium, a unit the Al Ghurair Construction Industries, will install the glass panel on Burj Dubai in the coming weeks. The tower is scheduled to open later this year.

So the 160/170 floors of Burj tower ends at 650 meters above ground.
Do we know if they will build an observasion floor at the top of the tower?
I think the view from 815 meters will be better

Do we know how many workers lost their lifes in this project?
There is no way no accident happened. Of course i wish we had none.

Lets see if we can build something taller in the next years.''
I would love to watch Alain Robert climbing Burj tower though.
