Burj Dubai at the moment simply because all we have of Al Burj is a couple of renders so I find it harder to get excited about that than I do about BD.

What I love about the Al Burj is that you will be able to look up through the middle to the top. You can't do that with the BD. BD looks great but Al Burj gets the vote from me.

I like the BD because of it's sheer might and presence on the landscape, however the pure elegance of aB wins it for me.

al Burj.
