Okay, okay, let's bury this conversation and move onto something a bit more relevant. Like, for example, how's the picture-taking going, Dr. Strangelove? Have you had a chance to get close to it? Still having condensation issues?

For better browsing for all, do not use pics larger than average screen size (1280 wide). It's easy to link to larger views.

Exceeding 200ko/pic will slow down browsing for those with a slow connection. Bear in mind...

Haven't had a chance to get close, and it is so bloody hazy. I am only 5 miles from it and I cannot get a clear shot. If this is any indication the people at the top will have a wonderful view of haze.

Not yet, but if that is a restaurant and you are not pulling my leg what are the prices and quality like?

Burj Dubai is world's tallest building

Press Trust of India / Dubai July 20, 2007



Burj Dubai is now officially the tallest, man-made structure in the world. The tower scaled 510 metres to beat the Taipei Towers that stands at 507.3 metres.

Official sources engaged in the construction of the world's tallest tower told The Gulf Today that they have reached the goal in terms of the building's height.

Although the height of the skyscraper has been kept under wraps, it is believed Burj Dubai will end up somewhere between 705 and 950 metres. When completed, it will have between 154 to 180 floors.

Construction for what is set to be Dubai's landmark structure began on Feb 1, 2005 and is set to be completed in June 2009. Being constructed by Samsung Corporation, the tower is designed by Chicago-based Skidmore, Owings and Merril.

The tower is the centrepiece of the Dh73 billion Downtown Burj Dubai Project of Emaar.
