sss An interior construction firm -that doesn't want to be named- has revealed a few details about the construction of Burj Dubai. Their work on the skyscraper is scheduled for August 2008, and they are going to have 300 days to finish it. Burj Dubai will be finished by the end of 2009 due to the failed first facade testing. The construction of the tower is going to slow down after they reach the height of 400-450 meters, as it will take much more time to bring the materials to that altitude.
sss According to Alaqariya TV, Burj Dubai is at 82 storeys, and it is going to be the tallest tower in Dubai by 2007. Jan. 15.
