Here's an artist's impression of how the skyscraper will loom over the city of Dubai when completely finished, which is expected in June 2008.
When finished, the building will be comprised of 330,000 cubic meters of concrete, 39,000 metric tons of steel rebar, and 142,000 square meters of glass--which will take 22 million man hours to complete.
Otis Elevator is installing 66 elevators and escalators, including two to the top observation deck. They will be the longest elevators in the world and travel at more than 20 miles per hour.
