Look, I've been living in Dubai for almost 13 & half years, and I have seen it all, plus I do have a tendency to get into the peoples psyche

She probably saw all the glitz, tried the brunches, visited the spas and shoe shops, and got hooked. She might very well get de-hooked just as quick, when realizing part of her old life routine might be missing.

As they say: easy come, easy go

Depends on what you count as soon. Not before 2015. It stands already taller than some other worlds tallest buildings.

2015?

Is that fantasy Changsha tower project going on, cause Kingdom Tower has absolutely no chance to be taller by the end of 2015

Please don't think I'm hating on the Burj, but I think we can archive this thread now. It was complete back in 2010 and now Kingdom Tower is UC. Just my thought.

But they can still come up with something new.

Burj Khalifa, Dubai: World's highest observation deck opens to the public

The world's highest observation deck has opened at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, offering visitors views from 555 metres above the ground.

The new attraction is located on the 148th floor of the world's tallest building, 24 floors higher than its predecessor

I think someone complain earlier, Burj Khalifa, as the tallest building in the world, does not have the highest observation deck at the time it open.

Now it do.

However, what more can you see above "At the top", more desert!
