No ranges lol.
If ranges were ok, I'd guess 460 to 1,200.

DocShergar, I don't think a 911 meter tower would go over too well with America. Where'd you come up with that figure?

RIGHT, as much as I want to chime in here...

Could I suggest making a "Burj Dubai Height" thread where all this speculation about the height, guesses and what not can be openly and freely discussed? I frankly dont want to be scrolling through pages with copy/pasted posts with everyones guesses...

just on the height estimate-
Adrian Smith (BurjDubai head architect) was a fan of Frank lloyd wright and his famous mile high skyscraper-the Illinois.
1 mile = 1,609m
Maybe he is paying homage to FLWright by making BurjD exactly half height of Illinois.?
half a mile= 804.5m the colour elevation with floor plates next to it posted earlier measures at 804m.

I think Burj Dubais height should be some sort of milestone. thats why i thought 808m was unsual. its 2650ft high, no real relevance.
i also think it will be more then 800m.
only time will tell.
cheers big ears

Hmm, on that note there's a new thread on BD's height debate that can continue with all of the above.....new users should register now and I'll auth it straight away to save waiting the usual 24/48 hours or so!
