|Higher and Higher - 06/02/2011|
Watch out stratosphere - you're about to be pricked. This ever-taller-skyscaper business only gets crazier.
The current most thrusting tower of all - the 828 metre Burj Khalifa, in Dubai - may only relatively recently have opened its doors to the public but already plans are in place for another building in that futuristic city to eclipse it.
At more than a kilometre high, the proposed Nakheel Tower would be so tall you could whiz up it in the lift and watch the sun setting twice: once at the bottom and once again from the penthouse.
If this happens at all it'll take years to come to fruition - so don't expect to be going up it in the next three or four years - Editor.
