They canceled Nakheel- do you think that they will build this thing?
I doubt that we will see any super-project in Dubai until someone else tries to take the "world's tallest structure" title from Burj Dubai/Khalifa.

"Burj Khalifa"?


Are they kidding or something? What did I miss, how come they changed the name?

It's a message that Abu Dhabi > Dubai for the moment.

SSC for sure is getting a lot of random visitors who find this page while googling in order to look for information about the fomer Burj Dubai.

While I was having breakfast, people in my family started to talk about this new very tall skyscraper that appeared this morning in the news paper. I was clearly the first time they heard about it, as if it came out of nowhere...so I had to spend a few time explaining them how I followed the whole construction process in the Internet.

Quite a memorable day.

Congratulations to everyone in this forum.

I never thought that they will change the name , I expected just something else instead of the Emaar.

Same here Imre, but as soon as I heard the name Burj Khalifa it all became very clear.
