FYI, Chris Chan did not make the statement that the Shanghai Tower will be Asia's tallest building. It was who interviewed him from Inhabitat (Diane Pham). And yes, she was educated in the U.S.

It is interesting to see the major towers will be connected underground. Too bad it does not mention the connection with the subway system/stations.

The IFC towers (the building at the bottom of Nordschleife's map) are already connected to the subway.

Depending on your point of view, isn't an error. Some people tend to separate the Middle East from the rest of Asia.

It would be a little strange to call the whole thing Asia considering the enormous geographical, cultural and any other differences. The term "Middle East" is there for a reason. Meanwhile by "Asia" most mean SE+East+South Asia.

Well, what organization classified Dubai as within Asia in the first place anyway? She's decided herself that based on culture and geography, it's more reasonable to classify Dubai as not part of Asia. Maybe she's right and that organization was wrong in the first place. LOL

Who cares.
The most important thing is that we know what is meant by "Asia" in this case and that is what matters.
