That'd be neat. A little narrow, though.

Nice update, Fury! I love how the surrounding buildings completely obscure the Lake Hotel, but the Burj still shoots WAY above them.

Nice finds Fury, I had the same dilemma from UK format, to the US and Oz one's. That's why I always post May 16th 2007, for example....then nobody gets confused......except Canadians!

I think we should keep year because Burj Dubai has been under construction for few years now... If we left the year out... Some people will got confused like when it was built? Last year?

Likewise, between 30 Wall compared to Chrysler and the Woolworth Building compared to 30 Wall if you go next in line, there's still no 100 meter gap.
