They better not build that stupid copy of Burj Dubai, what a terrible idea and an insult to Dubai. There already is a city that copies every other city, it's called LAS VEGAS.

Thanks Altin for your sensible answer (after a bunch of annoying nonsense from other people).

Yeah Arup pretty much block everything you can think of, so that is probably it.

Maybe they fear someone might upload and share confidential renders, drawings or diagrams of (1001) conic towers.

Im disgusted ... BD is a landmark already, you cant copy it. Or, more correctly, you should not copy it.

Well, anyway, someone could say that the Americans have done it already ( American copies of various of the world's landmarks are in Las Vegas and elsewere ) but that doesnt mean that this is right. My opinion is that it isnt.

Anyway, i guess i got a bit off topic. Sorry.
