The Burj Dubai, UAE
Last but not least, the Burj itself. The top of the world’s tallest structure is pictured here in a breathtaking snap taken earlier this year. Currently over 688 meters high, Emaar still has not gone on record revealing the tower’s planned final height. Delays being the norm in Dubai, it will also not be finished by the end of 2008 as initially hoped, as construction is about nine months behind schedule. With a total price tag of $20bn for the entire development – including the surrounding hotels and residential buildings – the tower is currently scheduled to open in September 2009.
