Check out these links: http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?8978577
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Burj

At least in those it seem to be true. They say it's proposed, so u'll never know. But honesty, how will it be like to live above 1000 meters? :O That's something unbeliavable. Wikipedia says it's gonna be more than 1000 meters high. And I thought it would take at least five years before they would even plan a tower that high.

Don't use wikipedia as a definite source, especially since I wrote most of the al burj article

yeah, there are about 50 posts each day in this thread, so it always takes a while before you'll find a picture.

Sampras....thats cause we have the threat of terrorism.
Ironically that threat comes from the same region these new towers are being built.

Also the architects that are building some of these towers are from the US
