Dubai modern architecture: Burj Dubai construction site

This is the construction site of the building set to become the tallest in the world. The advert in the centre shows how the development will look when completed. The actual Burj Dubai in its early stages is visible on the right. We are looking across Sheikh Zayed Road. The location is around 3 miles / 5km south of the old centre of Dubai.

See all Dubai photos.

The building doesn't look much at the moment, but the Burj Dubai is a tall slim building. The exact height is being kept secret but I've heard reports of 750 or 800 metres, 2400 or 2600 feet.
