Nice updates Altin D. I should say Burj Dubai is now above 90 meter, but I don't think it already passed 100. Of course there are people here who surely know it better than me, it was just a guess.

@ Dubaiflo

Take another look at your signature. I thought it was Mohammed Bin Rashid...

^ I can't find a good reference to estimate the height...especially not knowing the dimensions of the crane or any completed structures.

Dr.Dubai no this is correct. it is RIP, he died on wednesday.
of course HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is now Ruler, he was crown prince afterall.

Thanks for the execellent updates Altin. It's starting to get pretty tall, and from all the crans. The Dubai Mall at 5.6 million sq/ft is moving along pretty well also.

Yeah your leader, I cant remember his name - but he died here in Australia whilst on a trip to the Gold Coast. He was talking about some trade deal between Dubai and Gold Coast to help improve our tourism here, I dont know if that means we get a dubai-boom here too. Burj looks tall.

Do you EVER say anything that makes sense??

Every post Ive seen from this guy is of the same format.. It seems like the minute he gets un-banned, he says shit which pisses off the mods when they see it and he's banned again..


Oh well, its shit like this that keeps the forums somewhat interesting when things get quiet... lol

YES !!
Today is a good day.



They should put some signs with the height on the core. In one year there will be many fights here like. "The Burj Dubai is already 400m tall" "Are you blind, the tower can`t be taller than 350m"

I'm sorry. I totally missed it. I was enjoying a trip in London and I didn't receive this terrible news.
