When it is complete, Burj Dubai is set to be the tallest building in the world. When I visited Dubai in March 2007 it was on 110 floors and at that point became the tallest building in the UAE and the 9th tallest in the world. Since then it has grown a lot more and is now 138 floors high (498.2 metres). As this point in time (July 2007) it is the 5th tallest building in the world and has the world record for the most amount of floors in a building. The two post at the bottom of the picture are two of hundreds appearing all over Dubai. These are set to hold the new Metro transport system that opens in 2009. I took this photo from the back of a taxi travelling down Sheikh Zayed road.
