I'd love to see Burj Dubai the center of the fireworks display for 2010, it would be breathtaking! A tower that tall with fireworks? whoa!

Cool to see that the fountains are in place. It looks like they are finishing the surroundings.

I can feel how completion is approaching.

What do you mean? Three Taipei 101s is about 1528m, which is almost twice Burj Dubai's height.

you should edit the letter 'O' to the shape of palm island and have it in green colour.

But must compliment the sublime photos of Burj dubai...

Oh, I think I see what happened. You mistook 1900cm for 1900m....

So 1900m + 800m = 2700m, which is nearly six Taipei 101s (3055m).

Of course 1900cm is only 19m, which is about how much is left for jacking.

I hope you can understand why I was confused when you said that a picture of Burg Dubai is almost believably as tall as three or six Taipeis.

when stefan said 1900cm, he meant there's roughly 19m to go until top out. But I'm not following where you're getting at...

and when I said 6 taipei 101s I was being SARCASTIC.
