Amazing - You could see the same Sunset TWICE !!

 
I was randomly reading about TALL building of the world and reached a thread about the 'Nakheel harbour Tall' which will be the next tallest tower rising above 1000 metres, more than a kilometer high :D ..
 
And here is one of the facts about the building ...
 
Due to the high speed shuttle lifts one may be able to see the sunset twice; first from the bottom and again from the top of the building !!
 
Amazing i would say !! (dunno for sure if this is fact or speculation / imagination)
 
some more facts ...
 
- The building is so tall that it experiences five different microclimatic conditions over its height, each with individual design features

- The temperature in the atmosphere at the top of the building can be as much as 10 degrees cooler than the bottom
And to think of it .. there is a design for a 2.4 kilometer high structure ... 3 times the current tallest building ... Burj Dubai .. which has finally reached its full height last month (right in front of my eyes .. since my client office is right next to the Burj Dubai :)!!
