Burj Dubai: Top of the World
This picture is taken from an excess of 650 meters above ground level probably from the CCTV cam on the working platform or the tower crane. You can see the Persian Gulf and the Palm Deira taking shape in the top right portion (The Palm Jumeirah, Burj Al Arab hotel and Palm Jebel Ali would fall on the top left corner, although they cannot fit within this frame).
The concrete for the Burj Dubai has topped out, and the steel structure on the top is currently underway. The tower is expected to reach a height of over 800 m and would be ready for occupation by 31 December 2008.
