These other proposed towers have to consider that they are at base hight going to be twice at tall as 101. Burj Dubai has the option to extend to that hight. Personlly i think there is a bit of bluffing going on, BD is going to be 800+ becuase of the Busan tower that bluffed. Al bruj will centainly be 1000+m.

Yes, 25 years did seem a bit ridiculous to me too. Thanks for your replies.

We would see the future of this building next year as it's getting higher and has more obstacles.

You also stop posting your garbage with the way you answered him.

What does Jesus have to do with your damned frustration about buildings.


Moderators, please remove this post. It is uncalled for.

The first one is easy to build. Just blast off some corners of the mountain, and carved out the shape of the tower. Done!

I find reading the Burj Dubai threads a relaxing pastime; guess you do not share the same sentiment. What better break from 80 hours a week of business, than reading nonsensical posts about buildings? :p

Visiting Dubai

Hi, I'm visiting Dubai in late Jan/early Feb and I was wondering if anyone there wants to meet up? I'm a 26 y.o. structural engineer and I've never been out of Australia before, but I thought Dubai just looked too amazing not to visit!

Would love to see the Burj Dubai under construction and again when it's finished.

Give me a yell if you want to go look at some stuff there or just have a few beers!
