Maybe they will pull out a "Chrysler".

Of course it was. Airforce restrictions are for the total height of the structure, not the top habitable floor.

I agree with you, WA. The history of skyscrapers adds to a skyline because there are a variety of heights and architectural styles. When every tower is covered entirely with glass (which is not the case in Dubai, but fairly close) and there is a lack of height progression, the skyline looks too new.

Possibly in several decades will Dubai begin to rival Hong Kong, New York or Chicago. But, today that is not the case.

Are you referring to this image: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3095/...fb0bf26a_o.jpg?

The tall building on the left is the Rose Rotana Tower (also known as Rose Tower). It will soon be the world's tallest hotel (once it opens), surpassing the Burj Al Arab. It is 333 metres (1,093 ft) tall, with 72 floors.

The tall building still under construction on the right is the Ahmed Abdul Rahim Al Attar Tower (this is just the current, working name; the official name will be announced later). It is expected to be 301 metres (988 ft) tall, with 76 floors.

342 meters tall actually, the tower is already a supertall and the crown on top has yet to start.
