!! From that angle it's extreme! Looks like it's the size of 3-4 normal towers and it's far from finished :S

lol, i have to adjust that now to 819m. ;-)
the report also mentions it ONLY has the 629m KVLY mast to surpass. but this isnt true.
BURJD is currently 598m high (or 614m above slab).
there are still many masts in USA over 600m.

2 more in USA-628m, 624m, 27 more @ 609m, 3 @ 608m, 4 @ 607m,3 @ 606m,
9 @ 605m-600m!
so there are currently 49 masts over 600m in USA.

i think they mentioned with "ONLY to surpass the KLVY mast" that this is the next big milestone for the BD to become the tallest built and still existing structure on earth.

Than the next milestone will be the mast in Poland which was 648m i think, to become the tallest man made structure ever.

And from that point on it will make history by every added floor!

Hmmm...i dont know what the bildingstandart is in dubai...but this doesnt look good and its not the first time i see this. If you look close enough youll see all kinds of cracks/faults in new built palm houses.

Hmmmmm, look at this stonework.....only a few months old and already looking like hundreds of years.

For info this is still under construction and is still being snagged, antway not bad quality by any country standard.
