What a bizarre little article. This tower will be 600 metres tall. Burj Dubai is expected to be at least 800 metres (and this is mentioned in the article). So how can they claim the Tokyo one as he tallest?

Well thank you Keefie, I was just going to ask if anyone had the height expected for Burj Dubai...

At the rate things are going, the Burj Dubai will be a couple of hundred meteres of unfinished tower for a good while yet.
