DUBAI | Burj Al Alam | 510m | 1675 ft | 120 fl | On Hold






We knew of this tower for ages now.

http://www.burjalalam.com/home.htm

Here is the website, still under construction, you can just watch the video.

It will be the tallest all commercial tower in the world.

located in Business Bay.

Burj Al Alam in foreground, Burj Dubai on the right, then there is another supertall on a location we expect the Business Bay centerpiece tower which should be REALLY tall

yes this was formerly referred to as fortune 101.

and there is something weird about it, it says hotel and office in the description, so it is impossible this is the world's tallest commercial tower..?

fortune 101 is a better name. The name of this tower sounds like something an arrogant kid would say!

They just keep on coming, and they're all better than the last.
And now I have to learn another name, the Burk Al Alam, in addition to the Burj Dubai and Burj Arab (sp?).
