Burj Khalifa builder plans taller viewing tower

The developer of the world'south tallest building in Dubai says it plans to construct an even taller tower in the Mideast commercial hub.

Emaar Properties Chairman Mohamed Alabbar said Sun the new observation tower would be "a notch" taller than the Burj Khalifa. He wouldn't declare by how much.

Unlike the Burj Khalifa, the new tower designed by Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava Valls won't be a traditional skyscraper but more of a cable-supported spire containing observation decks, gardens and possibly other tourist facilities.

It's due to open by the time Dubai hosts the World Expo in 2020.
