That's why I'm looking forward to seeing it this Christmas/New year so much.
If this tower was the only thing Dubai had to offer, I'd still go.

I heard this thread also makes the most money on the website.
I see no reason to take it down, as nobody even checks the archives, anyway

This actually is the main (and probably the only) reason why it's still there

Try to book online the visit to the observatory, weeks in advance, maybe a month in advance, or even earlier

After seeing these pictures, I don't see how the Sears Tower has 1,000,000 more square feet than this. It just doesn't make any sense .

Thin needle versus spacious box? It makes lots of sense.

Still...1454 foot building vs. 2,717 foot building, 108 floors of space vs. 162 floors of space.

Plus, only 22% of the floor area on Sears goes all the way to the top.

Sears is fat. No wonder it was originally called "the pig" .

Ah bon!
Dans les pays développés, la notion d'une tour est principalement liée à l'économie, les grandes sociétés ...
