Since we are talking about Jan 1st, the Burj Dubai should be at least on the 99th floor.

Also:

- The piling of Princess Tower has been completed.
- The piling of HHH Tower has been completed.
- Ground work on Marina 101 has started.

I'd add another one of the dubai towers by the way. If the tallest one's around 400m then the next should be 340m while the third is almost the same size at around 330 or 320m. Also you should include the all the dancing towers since it is pretty much one structure, they are even joined together.

Dubai's progress is indeed impressive, but somehow I believe that it is not sustainable. Though let's cross our fingers.

The Burj Al Alam is already approved? Because Wikipedia says it's still a proposal.

^ im not saying the stuff you posted is incorrect. i just saying overall accuracy of the wikipedia itself is dodgy.Ive had people comeup to me at council and quote stats etc and they think, well it must be right, its on wikipedia! lol
its one of those things that seemed like a good idea at the time.its as accurate as the contributors.
