This comes from me after ages and it is about where the Tall Tower, “The Burj Dubai” stands now! I wrote about the Burj Dubai after it overtook the CN Tower of Canada. Last week it overtook the KVLY-TV Mast in North Dakota, USA. The KVLY is a television transmitting mast, which was completed in 1963. Burj Dubai is now the world’s tallest man-made structure, not officially though yet. When complete in a year from now; it will reach a height of at least 800 meters. The final height is a secret. Burj Dubai has now reached around 630 meters and 160 floors. When completed, the Burj Dubai would have consumed 330,000 cubic meters of concrete, 39,000 metric tons of steel rebar and 142,000 sq m of glass. Burj Dubai is the main attraction of the US$20 Billion Downtown development. This is not all – After completion of Burj Dubai another builder is expected to announce a 1,200 meter tower which will also be in Dubai. Looks like there is no stopping Dubai from scaling newer heights!
I leave pictures of Burj Dubai and the KVLY TV Mast.
