I'm spanish too, and im absolutely agree with what people have said here, everyone here makes jokes about calatrava, if you tell someone here about a new building designed by calatrava that person will say oh that building is gonna fall down, definetely he hasn't got a good reputation here. But this doesn't mean i dont like his buildings, in fact i love them.

This tower is a great idea of holding on to the worlds tallest free standing structure. The Kingdom Tower will always be over shadowed if this tower ends up being taller. It's also a lot cheaper to build a tower than a building.

I'm just a little confused was this the tower that was suppose to be in Diera, or will there be another one in Diera as well?

Actually I just took a better look at this tower plus the videos that were posted because I couldn't really see in depth from my smartphone.

Basically it won't be the tallest free standing structure because I think the cables will help support the tower, but still it could the the tallest tower/structure on Earth which is great.

^ Why would people in Spain think badly of Santiago Calatrava, in my opinion and in most American's opinions Santiago Calatrava's Buildings in Spain and elsewhere are highly admired. I think he is a great architect from Polytechnic University in Florida, WTC Transportation Hub and Turning Torso. I just hope this tower doesn't change my mind, and so far it hasn't.

I think this tower will have an entirely Different name. since Emaar Retweeted something from Dubai time out which says "What should we name it? New Dubai skyscraper being compared to Burj Khalifa & LaTourEiffel" https://twitter.com/TimeOutDubai/sta...04809355919360

I'll tell you why, many of the buildings he had designed , had problems like leaks and that kind of things, in fact there's a city called oviedo 30 km far away from mine, that has a calatrava building, that has a roof, that was supposed to move, but it actually doesn't move, and many other buildings with malfunctions, anyway i love his designs. I'll add a pic of that building to you to see.





PS: sorry for my english, hope you find it helpful

Wow, this tower caused so much attraction, this thread got 5 pages in less than 3 days.
I also think Burj dubai would be a good name for this.

Something is not quite right here ... Wasn't the Burj Dubai renamed to Burj khalifa because of financial problems .. And now these financials problems are all over and we are ready to build an even bigger tower ?

How realistic is this tower ?

Concerning the name - Then some of remember us that the Burj Khalifa was called Burj Dubai in the beginning. But ran in to financial problems - and was renamed Burj Khalifa after a new donor ? right ?

So, we now have new tower called Burj Dubai .. And it looks terrible expensive. So, we would like to know how credible these new plans are ? Can Dubai afford such a gigantic landmark right now?

That was my comment.

But make no mistake about it. I hope Dubai gets all the land marks it needs. But I also hope for the sake of the people of Dubai that it is sustainable - and it doesn't take away money from other forms of vital nation building.
But sure, the world need places like Dubai to tell the rest of us that the sky is the limit.

This building isn't as big as it looks. I know that the renders look like that this building is 10 times bigger than Burj khalifa, but it isn't. its just a observation tower. and observation towers aren't that big, just really tall. So its not going to be that expensive.

Unless they want to break records to have more publicity.

What are you talking about?
Burj khalifa was named after HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan The President of the UAE
