Wow! So it will still be NUMBER TWO when it comes to highest observation decks (CN Tower 'skypod' is at 447 m - 1,465 ft.). Kind of a shame I'd say. Amazing that people since 1975 in Canada have had the opportunity to go to an observation deck at a higher level that that in the Burj Dubai!!!

Regarding the outdoor deck, I think you're probably right. The CN Tower's outdoor deck is only at 346 m - 1,136 ft.

Note, one thing that a tower can offer that is not so easy for a skyscraper (unless you cantilever some odd looking mechanism) is a glass floor. The CN Tower has a glass floor level at 342 m - 1,122 ft.

Sorry for all the mentions of the CN Tower ... with Burj Dubai at its current height, there are only so many worthy touchstones to talk about.

you guys just dont get it. taipei 101 will continue to be OFFICIALLY the world's tallest UNTIL the council on tall buildings declares burj dubai to be world's tallest. that WILL NOT HAPPEN until burj dubai is completely finished which WILL NOT BE FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER YEAR!!!!

has the council on tall buildings (whatever it's called) OFFICIALLY declared burj dubai world's tallest yet? NO!!! it's not even a building yet, just an open skeleton!!! SO TAIPEI 101 IS STILL OFFICIALLY THE WORLD'S TALLEST!!!! hope i wont have to repeat that, again.

And how many times we have to insist that we are not burocrats, rather enthusiasts, and for us it is already the tallest (which actually it is with or without the official title).

It will be a stopover. why not i say.
let them build there city
A big great city?It'll probably be.But a NYC or London?It woudlnt be!!I would say it would be the next hong kong/singapore.I am saying this because NYC and London are the main cities in two of the biggest empires of the world in recent times, which UAE would never be.Your friends and indeed my friends are organising trips to dubai due to the novelty.Once the novelty is gone, the interest will slowly fade away.

I don't think so. Right now, sure it's a novelty. But as the city grows and becomes more and more mature, it will start to become an international destination, just like Hong Kong. That's why it was so genius on the part of Sheik Mohammad to build Dubai now, so that when it matures, it will be a world class city (I wouldn't say it is now, though).

The Crown Las Vegas, it will be located at the top of the tower.. 575 meteres.. so it will the highest obserbation deck (if ever gets built )

Absolutely. If the mods are going to wait until it is occupied or completed, then the thread will be almost done because this is the construction thread. Also when visitors and new people come to look, it will appear old because they will have thought that they just heard it in the world press that it is now the worlds tallest. Just simply delete the first word.
