Burj Khalifa

Now Dubai started off 2010 with a bang, with the renaming of Burj Dubai to Burj Khalifa, making it the new image of Dubai. You have to hand it to them even with the downturn they are facing that they still made a huge show of this. The fountain was fantastic, its the same company that did the fountain for the Las Vegas hotel in Bellagio. The funny part is that they did not release the exact height of it until the launch of the building yesterday, at 828 meters it is the tallest building in the world. They are also planning ahead that if anyone trys to build one taller then them they have a crane up top to build more floors if they need to, to stay the tallest building.
