Currently standing at 1,680 feet, the still-uncompleted Burj Dubai tower in Dubai is now the world’s tallest building. The previous record holder is Taiwan's Taipei 101 at 1,667 feet. Developers won’t say what the finished height will be, only that it will be over 2,275 feet. The $1 billion skyscraper is expected to be finished by the end of 2008. http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/meast/07/22/dubai.building.ap/index.html -via Fark

Article claims the Eiffel Tower was first to surpass the Pyramid of Giza as worlds tallest manmade structure.

Even though it took 40 years to complete, the Washington Monument was tallest for 2-3 years *before* Eiffel's tower was built.
