Good Grief!

Burj_Dubai_03.jpgWhat sheer decadence! Sort of reminds me of the Tower of Babel. I wonder how many years will pass before the building is fully occupied! Never?

The world’s tallest building, rising up to 828 meters to touch the clouds, Burj Dubai, is now open for business!
Burj Dubai was opened today in a ceremony, celebrating the fourth anniversary of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum becoming Ruler of Dubai.

As Dubai struggles with the economic crisis, the 160-floor-skyscraper is seen as a window of opportunity to pick up things and attract more business.

Construction on Burj Dubai began back in 2004. It was developed by Emaar and constructed by Samsung Engineering & Construction.

The building will house 900 residences on floors 19 through 108. The observation deck is on Floor 124. Sky lobbies on Floors 43, 76 and 123 will have fitness facilities, swimming pools and Jacuzzis. It has a hotel designed by Giorgio Armani.”
