Dubai makes history! As of today, you can find the tallest man-made building in Dubai. The skyscraper is called Burj Dubai (burj means tower in Arabic) and the tower overtook the Warsawa radio mast in Poland which measures 646 meters. The Dubai-based skyscraper measures 650 meters and it’s expected to get even bigger and will reach 819 meters to the aircraft beacon.
Dubai should hurry up with the Burj because Kuwait’s Burj Mubarak Al-Kabir will be finished in 2012 and will measure 1,001 meters. Until then, Dubai will be very proud of their achievement and I’m guessing that they could start a project to make it even taller and to compete against Burj Mubarak Al-Kabir.
Check out the video below with the video of the Burj Dubai designed by Adrian Smith, and at least for the moment, the tallest building in the world ever.
