Size Matters

The Burj Dubai, currently under construction, has reached 129 stories, on its way to at least 160, and has already become the world's tallest building. Dark Roasted Blend has lots of photos and renderings of the mostly residential skyscraper.

It is reported that a second mega-tower is slated for construction in Dubai, and it may be taller than this one. Kuwait has a building in the planning that will surpass them both. Take a look.

"More than one-third of the construction cranes in the world are currently in Dubai"
