Burj Dubai (now Burj Khalifa)

UPDATE: I took a night version of the Burj Khalifa together with the word's tallest dancing fountain here.

 

Burj Dubai ("Dubai Tower") is a super tall skyscraper under construction in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and is the tallest man-made structure ever built, at 818 m (2,684 ft). Construction began on 21 September 2004, and the tower is expected to be completed and ready for occupancy on 4 January 2010.

 

The building is part of the 2 km2 (0.8 sq mi) flagship development called "Downtown Burj Dubai". The total budget for the Burj Dubai project is about US$4.1 billion.
