“Burj Dubai” which has reached 130 floors and will be the tallest in the world
By the way, Al Burj will be the sixth tower in dubai to exceed 100 floors. Only Chicago in the world boasts of more than 1 super tower. According to DesiNotes, the six super towers in Dubai are:
“Burj Dubai” which has reached 130 floors and will be the tallest in the world by early 2009. It is already the tallest having beaten Taipei 101 of Taiwan. When complete it will be more than 800 meters in height.
“Burj Al Alam” will rise to 108 floors
“Marina 101” will rise to 101 storeys.
“Princess Tower” will have 107 floors
“Pentominium” will be of 120 floors.
“Al Burj” which ultimately will be the tallest tower surpassing even Burj Dubai is expected to be between 180 and 200 floors.
PS. Despite all these facinating records and statistics the fact remains that Al Burj tower is nothing but an extravagant Arab monument of oil wealth, conceit, ego and a white elephant, just like the Dubai Palm islands and UAE's other giant projects. Anyone with a common sense will see this building for what it is - ‘another imprudent petrodollar extravaganza’. Unfortunately these Arabs don't seem to realize it.
