Well so far, it's just wow. Wherever your drive in Dubai you can spot it from many miles away. Every single night in the week, the area around it is jammed with people just snapping pix. No ever thought it will come through, especially with the crisis and the deep sh!t Dubai was in.

There are apartments, offices, restaurants and an Armani hotel in that thing! You can read all about that place here: Visit the Burj Khalifa -- The Tallest Building in the World

Just look at the facts & figures lol

Haha sounds reasonable

Abu Dhabi Govt had to help Dubai out with billions (no numbers were released) but the amount was large enough basically to have Dubai rename that Skyscraper from Burj Dubai to Burj Khalifa (Ruler of Abu Dhabi and President of the country)

And that's a lot!

I would love to see this building in person. I have a thing for architecture and this just blows my mind. I probably will never be over in that corner of the world in my life, though.

I'm just a little white boy from Philly... I've been over to that corner of the world quite a bit. Never say never.
