As you can see from the last picture, (just saw it myself also) they started diss-mantling the Grocon jumpform.

so thats a really thin catorgory not reached these days. anything with ratio of 10 to 1 is extremely thin.
to get ratio you divide height into width, thus 333m div by 32m = 10.4.

yes rose rotana is going to overtake burj al arab to be the tallest hotel in the world. ironically the top 3 tallest hotels in the world will look like this:

1. Rose Rotana
2. Burj Al Arab
3. Emirates Towers Hotel

All three in Dubai

I dont know of any other tallest hotel towers in the pipeline but I'm sure 333m can be beaten easily... by Dubai itself hopefully
