Another mind-bender in Dubai

A friend just back from visiting Dubai was still amazed at the amount of construction going on in the development-happy Arabian Gulf state.

"We had dinner in a restaurant on the 27th floor of one building," Phil Spencer said, "and there were construction cranes as far as you could see. The only thing they seem to have a shortage of is room for all the traffic."

In addition to the towers, manmade sand islands being created in the shape of the world's continents, and about every other kind of sprawling project one can think of, the 2,150-foot high Anara Tower shown above is in the planning stages.

It won't be as tall as the mind-boggling Burj Dubai, which towers at 2.650 feet, but someone else probably will come up with one to top them both.
