World's tallest building

The Taipei 101 has for around three years been the world's tallest building, something that stirs up some mixed sentiment here. A new building in Shanghai will be taller than Taipei 101, but not nearly as tall as the new tallest skyscraper, the Burj Dubai, still in construction but now taller than Taipei 101.

In July it reached 512 m tall beating the existing record. Estimates put its final height somewhere between 800 and 1000 m tall, though even this record is unlikely to remain for long in rapidly growing Dubai.
