bin-Laden family secures contract to build tallest tower in the world in Dubai - One that dwarfs the absurdly-named Freedom Tower by over 500 feet, and has design elements that evokes memory of the original WTC complex for this writer, at any rate. This is old news, I know, but it's amusing that mainstream press failed to cover this story adequately.

the plan for a new tower in Dubai and the visual connection it makes in relation to New York's former Twin Towers represents a new turn in the symbolism the company embraces. It blurs the lines between Osama's actions in the name of Islam and the kinds of Islamic projects for which the company has become known.
