Burj Dubai The Burj Dubai is bigger and better than anything else in the world, and this record-breaking tower has been dubbed a monument, a jewel and an icon – three things that it is certainly living up to. While no specific height has yet been announced, it’s been rumoured that the tower will be finished at 818 metres, though it has already broken records as being the only building in human history to have surpassed the 700 metre mark. Due to be completed in September 2009, the tower will be home to world class restaurants, top quality entertainment facilities and the Armani Hotel – all, of course, with an unrivalled view. It’ll also have the world’s fastest elevator, travelling at 18 metres per second… maybe not such a great idea after dinner in one of those gorgeous restaurants! For details, visit www.burjdubai.com
