And we only can hope it hold on for a long time.
I also think, when the Burj Dubai is done, than another run of very big skyscrapers will come.

thanks krazy. unusual height. most developers like a round figure, like 440m or 450m etc. so 439m it is.such a magnificent project. foundations have been taking a while.

I'd say that construction on Russia Tower will begin late 2006/early 2007.
And since Fordham (or 400 ... whatever the name of it is right now) Spire is on the list, its pretty safe to put Russia Tower too. That and Freedom Tower only "ceremonially" began construction with the laying of the first block, but not much after.
I'd add it. Maybe under the diagrams, in the gray area, put "Built" "U/C" "Approved" under the respective towers.

Quick question CULWULLA, on the Burj, the slot with the people on the tower, is that the highest livable floor?
