Dubai has announced a 35-storey building that is designed to resemble a man dressed in traditional Gulf Arab dress, which yet another landmark is coming up here besides the world’s tallest building that is racing towards completion.

When completed, the concrete and glass human-shaped building is expected to be featured in the Guinness Book of World of Records as the biggest such building in the world.

The 500 million dirham imposing 140-metre structure named Burj Al Arabi is set for hand over in 2009.

This will join other landmarks here such as rotating towers, a fully-rotating solar powered tower, the world's tallest building Burj Al Arab, a property resembling a national flag and three of the biggest man-made islands.

The human-shaped tower will have a total built area of 400,000 square feet, of which 350,000 square feet will be for freehold commercial offices and the remainder will be for retail outlets, restaurants and parking.
