Wow, they've made a lot of progress since the last time I heard about. There was a program on the Discovery Channel not too long ago about it.

I think that was the PETRONIS TOWERS (http://www.greatbuildings.com/buildings/Petronas_Towers.html)wasn't it? (Also featured in Entrapment with Sean Connery ans Catherine Zeta Jones)

This is the building Lara and Terry jumped off in the second TR film.

The building was under construction at the time of course.

Now lets wait until a building double the size of this is built, and broken then breaking all of there buildings costing them more than actually building the buildings. I hope its a GREEN building, all that energy just for show.

Sorry, I should be positive. I could get Suicide Building name brand.

That building sure is tall. That is very interesting actually. The design is also very cool. Look at the new World Trade Center or Freedom Tower.. The design is so ugly, but Burj really looks so cool.
