DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - Burj Dubai, the world's tallest building since July, has also become the tallest free-standing structure on Earth, reaching 1,822 feet, the developers said.
The Dubai Tower's final height is a closely guarded secret, but completion of the concrete, glass and steel structure is expected by the end of 2008. The building's relentless climb is one example of Dubai's stratospheric rise from a sleepy desert town on the Persian Gulf to one of the principal business centers in the Middle East.
