Dubai's Vertical City Photos

0

Neatorama readers have followed the construction of the Burj Dubai. At times it seemed as if it would never be completed. Now the new tallest building in the world, renamed the Burj Khalifa, is finished. See photographs of the grand opening and find links to stories about the event.

Fireworks light up Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest buildin during the official opening ceremony in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Monday, Jan. 4, 2010. In a surprise move, Dubai renamed the gleaming glass-and-metal tower in a nod to the leader of neighboring Abu Dhabi - the oil-rich sheikdom which came to its rescue during the financial meltdown.

when i was younger, i always liked those old awesome abandoned buildings in galveston. well.. the bottom floor usually had something, but the rest of the building was empty so you could play chase in them... the doors wouldnt even be locked... fun times. i could only imagine what a 160 floor game of chase would be like... or laser tag...
