yes, the mighty BurjD will smash every height record whilst becoming a new wonder of the world.
History really is rising.
yes next milestone is
#HIGHEST ROOF (448M),
#then eclipsing Petronas (452m), (former WTB)
#Taipei101 (508m) , (Worlds tallest skyscraper)
#then Sears Towers antenna (527m), (highest point of skyscraper)
#then CN Tower (553m) (worlds tallest free standing structure)
#then (628m) tallest mast to become outright (worlds tallest man-made structure.)!!!
THis is all happening this year and next!!
exciting stuff.

nope, your the dummy lol, unless you havent read the last few posts you would know that the pic is of BD at about 390m, so unless Sears tower is really that short your wrong, nice effort tho! and thanks tobyas333 now everyone spent a page talking about an outdated pic.
