This building just blows me away. It's so tall it looks like something out of Star Wars.
I can't believe Dubai is going to build an even taller building. Dubai rocks

Now the real slenderness should start to appear. It'll get much thinner very quickly indeed.

Can't wait until culwalla posts new diagram, only if he sees the new photo of course.

I just can`t imagine how tall this already is and how tall it will be in the future months. It must be sick to stand in front of this Super structure. I have to include Dubai in my holidays destinations only because of this tower. Congrats to everybody who has anything to do with this.
