Now that Burj Dubai tops the 800m-limit, 1000m seems to become the new limit to break. What will be next? One mile?

I like this! Burj Dubai is a very good looking WTB, but Al Burj not so much. I hope this pushes through because Al Burj is not fit to be WTB.

That and Al Burj's last rumored height was still 1400m. Just getting the facts straight.

Are there strong winds and storms in that region? I love those supertalls and I am pretty excited about them. But I would not access anything higher than 500m!
