Burj Dubai is not only behind schedule, but might face a rescale back to the original 705 m height. This is due to time difficulties and the failed water leak tests of Schmidlin claddings. 7days: "Late last year 7DAYS saw a confidential document relating to the project in which Emaar recognised that they would have to scale back their ambitious 808-metre target height for the tower to just over 700 metres. The reasons for this downward reversion came from a combination of time constraints and the aforementioned construction difficulties."

Officials finally admitted that Burj Dubai is at least months off schedule: Gulfnews: "Dubai: The world's tallest tower, the $900 million Burj Dubai, is months off schedule after its cladding work timetable was thrown into disarray last year, officials admitted." Bloomberg: "Burj Dubai, the world's tallest skyscraper, is facing construction delays of at least a year after a leading contractor on the project went bankrupt, leaving the tower without any external walls."

Another possible threat for Burj Dubai
The new proposal by the Dubai Municipality could strongly slow down the construction of the tower. The proposal includes that constructions near to residential buildings would come to a halt at nights. To be exact, from 8PM till 7AM. This would affect Burj Dubai due to the closeness of the Burj Dubai Residences. There is nothing to worry about till it is only a proposal, and it would take a while for the new law to be implemented.

Two quick photos by Guy in Dubai taken with his mobile:
Couple of problems arise, while Burj Dubai is slowly joining into the world's tallest Top 10 chart. According to one of the engineers, they have found thin cracks on the foundation of Burj Dubai. They are still examining the problem and the cause, but it has already slowed down the construction of the wings. They have coloured white the walls around lvl. 17 to be able to examine the cracks in depth. Sadly, that's not all, it seems that the last test of the facades failed as well, but they say it won't slow down the construction.
