^ ...Huh? What the hell are you smoking?

I said they're planning to show it at some point, but it's not on the episode list of upcoming episodes, so we won't see it for a while. Is that hard to understand? What the **** are you snapping about?

^thats not free-standing. there are about 30 guyed masts in USA that are 600m+ high with tallest reaching 628m. wont belong when burjD surpasses 553m CN Tower which is free-standing. but since steel section of BD will take a while to erect, will be a while before it passes all those masts.(53)
WORLDS TALLEST GUYED MASTS -all in USA
kvly-629m
kxjb-628m
kxtv-624m
27 masts @ 610m.
19 masts @ between 600-609m.
4 masts @,597m,592m,582m, 538m.

WOOW Excellent pictures, Burj Dubai a great tower. Burj Dubai is making history everyday it pass. And here in the forum we're making history too more than 5500 post, is an amazing fact. If the owners of the tower only know the popularity of the tower, they'll be so happy.

I've calculated it and I got value 707,56 meters
The thing is that they say it can be seen from 60mi/95km away, but they don't say it can't be seen from further. The standard answer when you ask someone involved in the project how high it's going to be is "above 700, but we're not telling you any more," so they haven't really given anything away by telling us that.

Great first post though. Welcome!

In Poland we had tallest mast (2,120 feet), though it colapsed in 1991,
and was never re-erected

When do you think BD will become World Tallest men-build 'thing'

Nakheel Designs Al Burj: 1,050m Tower in Dubai

Al Burj

Al Burj (The Tall Tower) project being planned by Nakheel will be 1,050 metres tall, comfortably exceeding the height of the rival Burj Dubai and making it the world’s tallest building.

Nakheel has kept the tower’s height a closely guarded secret as it waits for its more advanced rival, being developed by Emaar Properties, to reach its final height later this year. However, MEED has confirmed that design plans show the tower to be more than 1 kilometre tall, at 1,050 metres.

“At that height, the Tall Tower will definitely be taller than the Burj Dubai,” says a source working on the Burj Dubai. “Emaar has not announced the full height, but the contractors are working to plans for a 700-metre tower, and we expect its final height to be about 800 metres.”

The Burj Dubai became the world’s tallest building on 21 July, at 512 metres, and is due to be completed in 2008.

Designs for the Tall Tower show 228 floors, a four-level basement and one service sub-level – a total built-up area of 1.49 million square metres with 492,000 square metres of useable space. It will house offices, apartments and hotels. The top habitable floor will be at 850 metres, topped by a 200-metre central spire with a three-level function area and three service floors.

However, the location of the tower could change again. It was originally called Al-Burj and destined for Palm Jumeirah, before becoming part of the Dubai Waterfront scheme. Nakheel is still reviewing its options.

“The site has never been fixed and has always been under review in the context of the strategic plan for Dubai,” says a spokesperson for the developer.

According to industry sources, the tower has been forced to move to the Ibn Battuta mall area as it violated Department of Civil Aviation height restrictions because of its proximity to the new Dubai World Central airport at Jebel Ali. Nakheel denies this. “No height restrictions have been placed on Nakheel in the waterfront area by the Department of Civil Aviation,” says the spokesperson.

Tenders for the contract to build the tower are expected early in 2008. Meanwhile, several consultants and contractors are assisting Nakheel with the project. “No pre-construction contract has been awarded or considered at this stage,” says the spokesperson. “We are talking to large-scale contractors, including [Japan’s] Taisei Corporation, to assist with the buildability analysis of the early design of the superstructure.”

Thats some great news! Worth of opening the thread again With 228 floors, top habitable floor at 850 metres and total height 1050 metres it will take all records from Burj Dubai. Imagine observation deck at 700-800m high As high as the Burj will be
Anyway, back to Burj Dubai!
