It's actually "Burj"!

"Burj" in Arabic means "Tower", So you better say "Burj Khalifa"

For me Burj is always Burj Khalifa! This one is known as Kingdom Tower! They aren't really interested in making this one known as Burj Kingdom.

... And Burj al Arab.

That was the one that started the Middle East's supertall bonanza.

I'm not talking about what (Gabriel900) is thinking! I'm telling the fact of the Arabic language.

Whilst I do think these mega towers are cool, and intriguing...I do wonder why they are building so tall. Is it necessity, or little man syndrome lol

Off course there's no need, its just land-sand everywhere in SA, it's just for the ego of doing it and they have the money for it.

I don't think it wont look as amazing as BK that it has buildings all around and has been developing for the past 15 years and it is the last piece and more brilliant of the whole city-area development at this time.

But anyway, we are here to see it done, no matter if it's necessary or not.

It could even be argued that this development , which some may class as being in bad taste is compensating for past hardship ?

Guys calm down with the desert and sand hoax you have been lying to yourself about. Trying to degrade such a massive world scale project like that won't work really. Just shut up and let us watch this beautiful tower take its shape.
