Al Burj may not be taller than Burj Dubai


Nakheel, the developer of Al Burj skyscraper has pointed out that Al Burj may not be taller than Burj Dubai.


The Nakheel CEO, Chirs O'Donnell is said to have stated that "height isn't everything" and that iconic buildings is what matters.


Burj Dubai, built by Emaar, is at present the tallest building in the world. Earlier, there were rumours that Al Burj could end up with 1200 meters in height and would therefore be the world's tallest tower.


Al Burj, earlier known as Pinnacle, was conceived as the focal point of Palm Jumeirah. It was later moved to the Dubai Waterfront and was re-named as Al Burj, and was subjected to major overhauling.


Al Burj the super-tall skyscraper escalates towards the sky, forming a centerpiece that represents the magnitude, vision and ambition of the development. The iconic tower features mesmerizing views of the harbour from the luxury duplex apartments.
