It popped up recently in an article I was reading, turns out it's supposed to be a hotel. Unsuprisingly building stopped half way through because they ran out of money!

The Shard is going to stick out like a sore thumb on the skyline, don't know if I like it or not, to be honest, the Al-Abraj in Mecca is my personal favourite.

The Tokyo Sky Tree was finished a few days ago.

Here is a pic showing future skyscrapers taller than the Burj Khalifa

I do know for sure that the " mile-high tower " won't be built a year from now. That graphic is outdated.



Dynamic buildings are to be built in Dubai sometime this decade:

Behold the Ultima Tower, this is twice as high as the mile high tower

and now bow down to the X-Seed 4000 which is the highest ever envisioned (of course after the Tower of Babel)

There's nothing under construction that'll surpass the Burj, I think it'll remain number 1 for atleast a decade.

Shanghai Tower, Ping'an and India Tower will be close, Shenzhen looks like it'll resemble something out of Blade Runner when the current projects are topped off.

If someone's interested, here's my video from December last year about 15 tallest buildings in tha World - year 2016.

Watch in 1080p !
As you can see only the 15th (and not for sure) will be the same as in 2009 - Taipei 101, others are 2010 (Burj) and later.

here's a concept art of Shanghai in 2025 and IMO it's really possible that it'll look like that in 14 years ;)
