After BD 819m there is huge gap between other heighted buildig in dubai.....at present Pentominium 516m and Bur Al Alam 501m so lage difference of 300m appox....... on contrary.....Korea are going very consistan having 500m-610m consistant in Seoul,Incheon and Busan......so i felt there is somethig to be added between 819m-500m in Dubai so the tallest in world after BD is in other city...ok about Al Burj but still take years to complte...

If they could maintain their pace, they would be hitting the world tallest structural title in just 2 weeks time

Speaking of one of those three masts, I happened to be driving through central California and passed through Walnut Grove, which houses three of some of the tallest radio towers in the world (one of them is actually the third tallest in the world behind two others in North Dakota). I took some photos from the base of the tower and was amazed to realize that the Burj Dubai is almost equal in height now to the massive radio tower I had been standing under. The tower looked astounding in its own right though, being 3-ish meters wide and around 600 meters tall. I would post photos, but all radio towers seem to look alike anyway; astounding in person though. For anyone who lives in central California though: Walnut Grove is just north of Stockton, the radio towers are to the west of the I-5 about 5 miles from the freeway...take one of the exits and drive out to the base and check it out, it's definitely worthwhile.
