The Burj Dubai World Tour

The Burj in London, New York, Paris, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh... Only in other cities can you see how big it really is...

[IMG]http://i38.************/53wdgg.jpg[/IMG]
The Burj Dubai in New York. The Burj dwarves New York City’s Empire State Building, which measures ‘just’ 381 metres in height. The Burj is more than double that at over 800 metres. Photograph: Getty Images / Edited: Maktoob Business

[IMG]http://i35.************/2lsbm0g.jpg[/IMG]
The Burj Dubai is 4.5 times taller than 30 St Mary Axe, also known as the Gherkin, in London. The building, designed by Norman Foster, is the most celebrated piece of modern architecture in the City. Photograph: Getty Images / Edited: Maktoob Business

[IMG]http://i35.************/161jncy.jpg[/IMG]
The Burj looms over the Eiffel Tower, which stands 324 metres in height. The lattice tower, a 19th century Parisian icon, is one of the most recognisable structures in the world. The Burj Dubai is 3.5 times taller. Photograph: Getty Images / Edited: Maktoob Business

[IMG]http://i33.************/20jiz5x.jpg[/IMG]
Modern wonder meets ancient wonder. The Burj Dubai contrasted against the pyramids of Giza, known for being the tallest structures in the ancient world. We had to play with the scale with this one. The pyramids were just too small to fit the Burj in any other way – the largest is 153 metres tall. Photograph: Getty Images / Edited: Maktoob Business

[IMG]http://i34.************/oigo77.jpg[/IMG]
The Burj Dubai meets the ‘Taj Mahal’ – modern power versus ancient romanticism. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1631. Photograph: Getty Images / Edited: Maktoob Business

[IMG]http://i38.************/sqt4yh.jpg[/IMG]
The Burj Dubai visits Singapore. The Burj is three times taller than the Overseas Union Bank Centre, one of the tallest buildings in the city, which is 280 metres in height. Photograph: Getty Images / Edited: Maktoob Business

[IMG]http://i37.************/humtsh.jpg[/IMG]
An evening view of Burj Dubai in Toronto. The Burj Dubai stands almost 1.5 times taller than the CN tower. Photograph: Getty Images / Edited: Maktoob Business

[IMG]http://i33.************/w8w6k2.jpg[/IMG]
An areal view of Chicago with the Burj Dubai standing next to Willis Tower, formerly named Sears Tower, a 442 metres skyscraper. The Burj Dubai stands 1.8 times taller than Willis Tower. Photograph: Getty Images / Edited: Maktoob Business

[IMG]http://i38.************/18ngyb.jpg[/IMG]
The Petronas Twin Towers, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia are stand 451.9 metres high. The Burj Dubai is almost 1.8 times taller, but then it is two against one. Photograph: Getty Images / Edited: Maktoob Business

[IMG]http://i33.************/jpiop1.jpg[/IMG]
One of the most famous towers in the Gulf, the Kingdom Centre also called Burj Al-Mamlaka, looms over the city of Riyadh, and boasts the highest mosque in the world. Yet for all its grandeur, it stands within the shade of the Burj Dubai. The Kingdom Centre is 311m in height. Photograph: Getty Images / Edited: Maktoob Business

[IMG]http://i37.************/2myq2kn.jpg[/IMG]
Burj Dubai in Kuwait City. The Burj stands 4.3 times taller than the Kuwait Tower which stands 187 metres tall. The Kuwait Tower is visible from almost every corner of Kuwait City – except when the Burj is in town. Photograph: Getty Images / Edited: Maktoob Business

[IMG]http://i38.************/2q9h1xh.jpg[/IMG]
Special thanks to the Financial Times for this one. This is part of the global city advertising campaign run by the newspaper, a fictional metropolis made up of the world’s tallest and most iconic buildings. We have added the new boy in town… The Burj Dubai. It is, after all, bigger than all of them. Photograph: Financial Times/ Edited: Maktoob Business

[IMG]http://i37.************/2r5px1h.jpg[/IMG]
The Burj Dubai is 4.2 times taller than the Hilton Baynunah hotel, which dominates the Abu Dhabi skyline. The hotel measures 185 metres in height. Abu Dhabi recently rejected plans for a new world’s tallest building on the grounds it would interfere with air traffic. Photograph: Getty Images / Edited: Maktoob Business

This pictures helped me much to understand the sheer size of this building. In Dubai's skyline it don't seems to be THAT big, but put in others it looks gigantic.

Hi Fury,

No problem! A unique collection of a very unique building huh!

A few here worth checking out I think.

PS: You wouldn't believe some of the articles on BD there are out there ... they're not even worth the ink they're printed on!

And this one represents how it will look in Orlando, Florida; I did it two years ago. I sized the building without specific measurements:
