There have also been rumours that the Al Burj Tower will not try and match the Burj Dubai in height, and that it may not even be built. Can you comment on what is happening with this project?

What I can tell you is, yes, it will be built, but the site is still to be confirmed. However, we still believe it will be the tallest.

nice read here: Will the Burj Dubai mark the top of the Dubai property boom?

Tall building syndrome is a well known phenomenon. The topping out of the world's tallest buildings has frequently happened at the point when a local market turned down.

At the request of Mohammed bin Ali Al Abbar, actioned on direct orders by his Royal Highness Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, I've been asked to remove the sensitive secret information from the DMP website.

Sorry to be pedantic, and irrelevant to skyscrapers, but Sheikh Mohammed is an HH ('His Highness'), not an HRH ('His Royal Highness'). His wife, Princess Haya, is an HRH because she was born a Princess of the Kingdom of Jordan.

Thats probably wrong, it was 143 only a couple of days ago. Also is there really going to be 30 uninhabitable floors?
