I heard it would be about 790 meters, twice the empire state building.
I'm looking forward to going to Dubai once.
I heard women aren't allowed to cross the border by themselves.
Is that true?

New York needs someing to break up the flat roof, something that sticks out.
Dubai is sweet cuz theres alot of different size towers you can really tell scale and how big something really is.

I hardly believe US7 is already 70m high.

On the pics it really does not look that tall
