Now that Taipei 101 is no longer the world’s tallest tower, the owners of the erection are trying to get one over on Dubai’s bigger one.
According to the Taipei Times, the owners of the diminutive Taipei 101, which is less than 800 meters high than the Dubai tower, will try establish its credentials as the largest “green” tower in the world.
And to pursue this silly course, the authorities will waste, sorry, spend $1.9 million to get their hands on an environmental certificate to press home their claims.
Burj Dubai is making no claims to be green. It’s content with being the tallest building in the world.
Apparently, size does matter, according to the Taipei Times, here.
