In Dubai this one beats the WTC by something like a 1000 ft. It is about 2000 something feet tall and 160 stories. It makes this building below it the size of the empire state building look miniture. You can see this building for up to 60 miles away!

I bet they built it just for it to be tall, it's kinda ugly though...

I know I keep getting the impression that lets see how high we can get these things. 2000 feet high that is just completely insane.

Best part is, it's still under construction!

That'd be one heck of a view from the top.

in Dubai. Those guys like to make big things... remember the islands in the shape of a palm, or the world? those are man-made structures that can be seen from the space. Surpris

from the video the top so far is incredible. You couldn't get me up there Rire some building as tall as say the empire state building looks like a migit (sp?), and I guess you can see this thing from 60 miles away.

Every structure looks like legos when they look down or across Dubai. Surpris

I found a really cool video about it. At the moment the tower is about 137 stories. I think this was this year I'm not quite sure though but either way this video is amazing. They go to the top Surpris

These are lists of skyscrapers, ranked by
structural height (vertical elevation from the base to the highest architectural or integral structural element of the building);
highest point on the building.
These lists only include buildings that:
are completed or topped-out, and
have continuous occupiable floors (high-rise buildings).
