Emaar Properties, an $8 billion publicly traded real estate company listed on the Dubai stock exchange, "is planning to showcase Burj Dubai, a planned new urban development that it claims will be include world's tallest building, eclipsing current record-holding structures and the Freedom Tower at Ground Zero...
