just came back from an amazing night at a club, and now this great news.....wuhuuuu finally a BUILDING is breaking a magical height and not just a mast or so....surely the BD is the FIRST building after sears tower and former wtc buildings,which really diserves to be called an architectural masterpiece and milestone...

congrats to Dubai Emaar and especially to all those brave construction workers.......great architectural effort.....BUT we have still another 118,1m to go! What is the most unbelievable thing to me.....

I think that the invention of electricity was a little more important.

95% of the world population doesn't give a s**t if it is 700m or 900 m

But for us, skyscraper freaks it is definitely an important moment.
