And it will be an absolute nightmare for the vast majority of the population of the planet to actually visit the country and get to see it in person.

I struggle to think of a worse place to embark on such a project.

Yeah, it seems unlikely to me more are going to be built this tall. I don't know how a Saudi tower like the Burj Dubai would ever pay for itself. Most people who have money to buy units in these towers are not from Saudi Arabia or Dubai. And considering the debt bubble that exploded in Dubai, I don't see how the Saudi's would think building an even taller tower is a good idea.

The Burj (~ Dubai ~) on the Road

[IMG]http://i50.************/2llm79e.jpg[/IMG]
Big new shadow on the Yarra - the Burj would dwarf Melbourne's 300m Eureka tower.

[IMG]http://i50.************/1052qh0.jpg[/IMG]
Australia's tallest building, the Q1 on the Gold Coast, is no match for the Burj.

[IMG]http://i45.************/x45cvn.jpg[/IMG]
The 305m Sydney Tower would be left far behind.

[IMG]http://i50.************/6q9rtw.jpg[/IMG]
The Burj would even transform New York's famously sheer urban skyline.

[IMG]http://i47.************/213mdev.jpg[/IMG]
Move the Burj to Paris and the 324m Eiffel Tower's impact is severely stunted. Vive la France!

[IMG]http://i46.************/2ltna07.jpg[/IMG]
Standing at a mere 80m, Godzilla would have a hard time bringing down the Burj.

Looks like Godzilla has a problem with the Armani suites!?

I live in the USA and I have to say no. First the FAA would have to change their rule of no building can surpass 610 Meters. It's not likely that will happen.

WOW....stunning photos and videos Imre! Also thanks to GeraldD, 234 Sale and everyone else who took pics of the ceremony.

On the name change....ALL towers change names...doesn't bother me much but I can certainly understand those who are upset. I am kinda miffed about the stupid new name for the Sears Tower.

Lastly, the most moronic statement in this entire thread, "Watch Iran blow it up"...where'd the hell you get that piece of lunacy? Yeah, sure...an Arab country would attack a neutral Arab country....that would go over really well. Yep, you must be smoking the really good stuff out of that crack pipe.

LOL Yeah, but what would the locals think of that?! It's bad enough they gave away the Burj Dubai for the Burj Khalifa! Any more than that and it'll be complete pandemonium around here!

That's baloney, of course there will be one some day. In fact they've been proposed here before, just not built. Maybe not 10 years from now, but never is a long time.
