Wow, I cannot believe how fast this thing is going up. It's still hard to take in that a tower of such immense size will actually become a reality. :shok:

The Abbco Rotana Hotel looks well under construction as well. It will be an icon on SZR Road for a while.

Well, at least until some of these other super 100+ Floor tower projects get finished.

is that smog or dust? hopefully dust, or else it's pointless to build something so tall and beautiful if you can't see it. maybe it's going that tall to get out above it. :P

This may have been asked before, but how many floors is that place going to have? A thousand? :blink:

No exact number on the amount of floors is known. Only Nakheel (developers) know the exact floor count. This is done because they're are several other large skyscrapers: such as Al Burj which are said to be as high as 200 Floors. Estimates have been given that Burj Dubai will be more than 150 Floors, but less than 180.
