Sights of Dubai - by Craig Hill

Burj Dubai (contd..)

August 17th 2007 18:39
Readers.. sorry for the delay..

Continuing my posts on the World's Tallest Tower...

The Burj Dubai's completion is expected to occur somewhere in late 2008, though the exact details are shrouded in secrecy. When fully completed it will earn the name of being the "tallest man made structure"..as well as the "tallest free standing structure on earth"

The construction of this tower takes place throught the whole day in shifts, at an astonishing pace..with engineers working hard to meet the given deadline. The entire Burj Dubai project is worth a whopping $4 billion US dollars.

Highlights of the Tower

Exterior

The exterior of the tower has alot of influence from Islamic Architecture. When completed, the whole tower from the outside would take the shape of a pointed structure rising high, with peelings narrowing the size of the structure till it reaches a pointed spire.
