Burj Mubarak Al-Kabir To Be World's Tallest
In a Persian Gulf building war, Kuwait announced its plans to build the Burj Mubarak Al-Kabir to attain a height of 1,001 meters (3,284 ft). The Burj Dubai is supposed to top out at over 800 meters but they are in mid-construction; maybe they'll tack on a couple of hundred meters now. This thing is a total monster, it will be twice as tall as Taipai 101 which was the tallest until Burj Dubai, now look at the picture comparing the Burj Mubarak to the Burj Dubai. I think these Gulf States are getting more than a bit over the top with their mega-projects.
