The 'City of Silk' altogether will cost $150b dollars not just the tower, you thick shits really get on my nerves.

P.S Iexpect London to produce something over 500m within the next few years considering we are designing everything for everyone else do you lot not have any good architects?

Bloody hell, your cities are made with British designs like the tallest bridge in the world which quote by Chirac "was a sense of french pride and thier character" was actually designed and half built by the British.

Damn im drunk but to be honest I dont are, we do everything for you guys to have cities you're proud of like HOng Kong, like New York yet we dont get any credit. well to be honest, we all know in the coming years London is gonna spank your arses with highrises, maybe not with the biggest but definately with the best designed an we are gonna laugh in your face like we do down the pub.

Damn blah blah blah! ... night

i think the tower of 1001m will end up as a vision but they might still build it but not as 1001m

ha ha ha...... perhaps, but Nakheels tower is likely to end up being around 1600m tall. Now will everyone please stop getting so excited. Dubai wins, end of discussion.
