Nope - Chicago and Hong Kong alone will account for 14.

Fantastic!

I love skyscrappers and supertall buildings. This one looks really cool. It compliments Burj Dubai down the street.

Obviously the helipad seams to have been removed from the plans.

i still think helipad is part of design. the conical top actually opens like a flower when helipad is required. thats why pad id shown in plans. makes sense.

Yeah, hope so since the conical top looks much better than just a plain old helipad would.

FYI;


Dubai tower now world's tallest free-standing structure

Sep 13 08:24 AM US/Eastern





View smaller image


The world's tallest building, still under construction in the booming Gulf emirate of Dubai, has become the world's tallest free-standing structure, its developers said on Thursday.
The Burj Dubai tower is now 555 metres (1,831.5 feet) tall and has surpassed the 553-metre- (1,824.9-feet) CN Tower in Toronto, Canada, which held the record for the world's tallest free-standing structure since 1976, developers Emaar Properties said in a statement.

The skyscraper, being built by South Korea's Samsung and set for completion at the end of next year, is one of several mega projects taking shape in Dubai, which is part of the United Arab Emirates.

The statement did not reveal the tower's final projected height or its final number of storeys, which Emaar has kept secret since launching the project in January 2004.

The developer announced in July that Burj Dubai, Arabic for Dubai Tower, had exceeded Taiwan's Taipei 101 which is 508 metres (1,676.4 feet) tall, to become the tallest building in the world.



Poor CN tower. Oh well, it sure had a nice run. Congrats to the newest tallest supertall!
