Aren't Hilton & ADDIA HQ taller then 150m? Even Etisalat building should be taller then what BD is now, also those twins that looks like Emirates Towers (Are they AD Comercial Bank?).

The Burj Dubai must be at least 363m tall for me. This is the tallest structure near me.

It`s not even a TV tower or a chimney. It`s a radio mast. But we have 2 of them and i can see it from my small town


Concerning Burj Dubai. It would be incredible nice if we would all be wrong and what we see is just the core

Well it's not above ground yet so it may yet be wider.

I feel like I've been locked up tight
for a century of lonely nights
Waiting for someone to release me
You're licking your lips
And blowing kisses my way
But that don't mean I'm gonna give it away
Baby. Baby. baby (Baby ,baby, baby)

Bridge:
Ooh (my body is saying let's go)
Ooh (but my heart is saying no)

Chorus:
If you wanna be with me
Baby there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle
You gotta rub me the right way
If you wanna be with me
I can make your wish come true
You gotta make a big impression
I gotta like what you do

I'm a genie in a bottle baby
You Gotta rub me the right way honey
I'm a genie in a bottle baby
Come, come, come on and let me out

The music's fading
The lights down low
Just one more dance
And then were gonna go
Waiting for someone
Who needs me
Hormones racing at the speed of light
But that don't mean it's gotta be tonight
Baby, baby, baby (baby, baby, baby)

Bridge:
Ooh (my body is saying let's go)
Ooh (but my heart is saying no)

Chorus:
If you wanna be with me
Baby there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle (I'm a genie in a bottle)
You gotta rub me the right way
If you wanna be with me (Ooh)
I can make your wish come true
(Wish come true...Woah)
Just come and set me free
And I'll be with you

I'm a genie in a bottle baby
You Gotta rub me the right way honey
I'm a genie in a bottle baby
Come, come, come on and let me out
I'm a genie in a bottle baby
You Gotta rub me the right way honey
(if you wanna be with me)
I'm a genie in a bottle baby
Come, come, come on and let me out

Bridge:
Ooh (my body is saying let's go)
Ooh (but my heart is saying no)

Chorus:
If you wanna be with me
Baby there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle
You gotta rub me the right way
If you wanna be with me
I can make your wish come true (Ooh)
You gotta make a big impression
I gotta like what you do (Oh Yeah)

If you wanna be with me
Baby there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle
You gotta rub me the right way
(You gotta rub me the right way)
If you wanna be with me
I can make your wish come true
Just come and set me free baby
And I'll be with you

I'm a genie in a bottle baby
Come, come, come, on and let me out

I never usually post in this thread because of all the spam everyone complains about, but that last post deserves a big WTF?

It's really high but not that big spacewise. There's no way you could have 50,000 people here like the old WTC did.

that's because the wtc were twins and commercial towers

burj dubai will be mostly residence and a 30+ storey hotel
this is what will reduce the number of people in house

if it was a purely commercial tower you could put much more people in there maybe nearly as much as in the wtc
