Poor helghast. He's getting it for not getting it.

Well the world record of tallest structure is one beam away. This is some good reporting. For the first time since the 1950s when the Empire State Building lost its absolute height crown to a mast, Burj Dubai will regain that record for free standing structures.

Hope we get some more snapshots from that height.

helghast knows we are only muckin around.
yes, the only time the worlds tallest structure was a skyscraper was 1930 with Chrysler bldg and Empire state bldg. pretty amazing. for that to happen again we had to wait another 80 years and build higher then 2000ft.
Its amazing how Burj Dubai only needed to be 630m to achieve this but Adrian Smith from SOM decided to blast that height into space and add a further 200m to become worlds tallest man-made object.
This building already looks extreme now, so just imagine another 200m on top.
