It looks biblical in scale... absolutely ginormous. This is a proper tower no doubt about it and a fitting holder of the world's tallest building - unlike the kitsch green pagoda'd Taipei 101!

I can't wait to go up it.

Burj Dubai has absolutely an awful and silly design!
It's just like "How can we build the WTB, no matter it will look like!
Sorry for that! No comparison to CS!

You must not come here often X-entric. Those are the Moscow Tower and Chicago Spire, respectively.

It seems so thin on the top, and still 1/3 to go... Interesting...

What the hell are you ranting about? Like the burj dubai has somehow offended you personally. Besides the fact that the design is amazing, the CS isn't even close to being built. Are you subtly suggesting the burj stole the WTB title from the unbuilt spire?
