Al Burj, another tall skyscraper with 750m. The tower is actually The Pinnacle who has been removed from Jumeirah to this location.

Wow, that is pretty neat. What made them move the Pinnacle to the other location and change the name?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

No idea, but i guess they also agreed that The Pinnacle didn't fit with Jumeirah or Jabel Ali. The Pinnacle looks far better in the Waterproject that Jumeirah. But i have no idea why they changed the name. Al Burj reminds me too much of Burj Al Arab and Burj Dubai, so im not sure if i would favour the name though.

This is one of the most impressive projects I have heared about. But I guess building into the sea is a essential step for Dubai and the UAE in general, as land is scarce and I doubt they want to cover their oil and natural gas fields.

And about the price: don't worry, we all paid for it at the pump.
