Yahoo: DUBAI (AFP) - The world's tallest building, still under construction in the booming Gulf emirate of Dubai, has become the world's tallest free-standing structure, its developers said on Thursday. The Burj Dubai tower is now 555 metres (1,831.5 feet) tall and has surpassed the 553-metre- (1,824.9-feet) CN Tower in Toronto, Canada, which held the record for the world's tallest free-standing structure since 1976, developers Emaar Properties said in a statement.....The developer announced in July that Burj Dubai, Arabic for Dubai Tower, had exceeded Taiwan's Taipei 101 which is 508 metres (1,676.4 feet) tall, to become the tallest building in the world.




so much for North America keeping the titile

Oooh! I love the Pool view!

Just a question? Are they going to put fresh water on that? Or salt water?

The old town creates the perfect contrast to the tower of the future. Emaar really got it right on this one. But I wonder, once all the cladding is done the Burj will be almost camoflaged against the blue sky.
