Can't wait until the roof is constructed.It is one of the most impressive roofs ever.But for me the burj al arab is the most beautiful hotel building in the world.

But it's the second tallest tower in Dubai before Almas Tower is ready. Burj Dubai takes a way longer for the completition. And then we have a long time to wait for a taller tower as the Burj. Expect the Al Burj in 2013 or so.

Wow!! The facade is beautiful!!

Its such a shame that there are other buildings in such close proxcimity. Would have been nice to see it on it's own.

Any more pics?

It was probably just to compare 4th of june last year with 4th of june this year. So check out the latest construction pics in this thread and you'll see how fast the tower has been built in the last year.

You are either:

1. A non-skyscraper fan

2. Dubai hater

3. All of the above
