I am not sure Christos, I 'd heard/read news regarding a one mile high structure that will be built in Dubai, slightly taller than Burj Dubai. Perhaps they ve changed its name.

Anyway, the tower looks so dusty. How do they want to clean this shit everyday?

Check for the MPTs (Million Page Thread) that some fora are trying to achieve. I found one with almost 600.000 pages.

Please remember that the UC surrounding area will be part of the last phase. They may add lots of green when it opens later this year. There is no point in adding green and get it all dirty during construction. That being said, I do hope they clean the lake completely (again) before grand opening. I see sand keep getting into the lake.

The Harbor tower has not really been started yet, so he is right when he says a few years. The Harbor Tower will probably take 10 years to be build if they continue now. I dont expect the Burj's height to be beaten before 2015, its more likely to be 2018 in my opinion.

1. The sign is temporary and will be removed.

2. It does not block any views ... from inside the glass will look slightly darker but that's all.
