This is difficult to say as Burj Dubai gets hidden by other high rise buildings in the area around it. Furthermore, Dubai is flat and there are no hills that allow one to have a view of the city.

I'd love to post a picture so you guys could see it, but I really would be doing the wrong thing if I did. I'm actually surprised by how much stuff does end up on this site, supposedly from employees of companies involved. Although I appreciate the pictures, it is unethical for them to do it if the information relaly is confidential. I assure you that if I can find out from someone that the information isn't confidential, I'll put up some pics.

Sorry to be a tease...I really thought someone on here would know what it is and actually wanted to satisfy my own curiosity, rather than start another mystery!

could it be this one in Doha?:

or can you please tell me at least the architect and some other background information. I am quite good in finding stuff on the internet....

Thank you very much,

Julito

838m

Its more like 188m of Steel and 50m of spire.

Anyway nothing is definite yet, It could be 200m of steel and 100m of spire even, coming close or even hitting the 3000ft mark
