The Burj Monument to the Burj Khalifa: Because what you need near the tallest building in the world is a monument to it

Here it is: 18 metres high, three cores, stainless steel near the Dubai mall "on a unique visual plane aligned with Burj Khalifa", according to press release this monument to the Burj Khalifa (located within sight of the real thing, naturally) represents Emaar's "token of gratitude to the people of Dubai and visitors from around the world", "an architectural art", modelled on "the world's only 'Global Icon".

It would be poetic justice calling the monument to Burj Khalifa- Burj Dubai.

I should think Burj al Makhtoum is fitting tribute to Burj Khalifa, actually.
