2,064 feet and rising

The Burj Dubai in the United Arab Emirates has surpassed 2,000 feet, and is now officially the tallest man-made structure on earth. When it is finished, it will top out at 2,684 feet. To put that in perspective, that is about 1,400 feet taller than the Empire State Building. Here is a photo of construction in progress from March of this year.

Good Day to You, Sir
