That Burj Khalifa picture looks familiar. I'm quite sure I took it.

Technically, the top 37% isn't habitable.

Ridiculous! No practical reason to even build it that high. Just a monument to show you have a bigger _ _ _ _ _ than the guy who built the last one.

I guess the spire will be about the same height as the ESB.

ESB's antenna is only 62 meters or 204 feet tall. It appears to be more because about 60 meters of the top of the building are rather thin

Hope this will never be built. Besides, the wolrd is lacking sand for construction, so this useless building is an heresy.
