As part of Dubai’s transformation from a regional centre to a global one, and morphing from an oil economy to a knowledge-based one, the Burj Dubai will be the nation’s crowning glory.

Currently under construction, this awe-inspiring beacon of a building will reach
2,620 feet /801metres when completed.

Interesting to note: the workmen on the upper most girders (photo 2) can see the rotation of the Earth!
