If the oil runs dry by then, Dubai may be the double or triple the size of NYC..

I will say that the building will look nice when its finished..
However, i really can't see what attracts people to live in Dubai. Frequent sand storms? Yuck.

Every construction boom ends with a bang, it's just a matter of time before it hits Dubai.

apparently you sure don't know much bout Dubai..just like most Americans unfortunately...Dubai is NOt only oil...as a matter of fact, oil is just a small part of it. Yes Dubai is rich and also very smart..

Dude, I live in Miami and I could easilly say that Dubai is farrrr way ahead of Miami in all aspects....I'd rather live in Dubai and brave the sandstorms that corrupted Miami...the city is soo segregated that everybody thinks they run the city! and ah yeah...ya know why they call Miami the capital city of south America? You read the news and you know what i'm talkin about...embezzelment, double standard immigration policy, racism...

and yeah I am here now but for long...back to Chicago dude!

Haha, I'd take sandstorms over real storms too. Heat wouldn't be a problem since the climate control in Dubai buildings is freaking FEROCIOUS. It gives you the sniffles from shock alone. Just stay indoors.

Dubai isn't ahead of Miami in all respects, nor is Miami ahead of Dubai in all respects. I dunno why Leeigh has it out to get Miami because it is really a great place to live or visit. Sure we have a bit of tension between Haitians and Cubans and other immigrant populations, but overall Miami is way more tolerable than most cities. Also, the ‘cocaine cowboys’ have all been rounded up decades ago. Miami is now a legitimate city which makes most of its income through tourism and international banking not through “Scarface” style embezzling.

A few wee diagrams:






Taking 150m as the current height the whole thing works out at half a mile.

Now let's leave Miami out of this. I'm sure it's a great place.
Now back to the burj

Oh, Miami is wonderful. I've been there multiple times. We were only referring to the various types of storms.

Storms in Miami are definitely a big problem, especially during the summer when it pours every afternoon. Also, Florida is the lightning capital of the world. I’ve been within 50 feet of a lightning strike probably four or five times in my life. I also lived through Hurricane Andrew, a category four hurricane that destroyed Miami in 1992 much like Katrina did New Orleans last year. Because of the hurricane, my roof had to be completely replaced so I lived at my grandparent’s house for 6 months.

Id rather live in Dubai over Miami aswell. You would have to pay me quite a bit to live in Miami.

About the storms:
Once in a blue moon you get hit by a real bad one. Ive never experienced a category 3 or higher hurricane, but i living where the eye of Wilma, Jeanne, and Frances all came through.. i can say that they are not as bad as the news makes them out to be. (Assuming you don't live in a mobil home). I think its quite a rush to see a hurricane before your eyes. I guess you can say im weird like that.

Psssh...you can't handle Miami. Anyways, how 'bout those pics Krazy posted? So many cranes! I bet there are at least 12 on the Burj Dubai site alone.
