Hello guys, girls

Joshsam I don't know what happened but please can you fix the title to

DUBAI | The Tower | 900m+ | 2953ft+ | ??? fl | Prep

We don't have official confirmation it will be 928m, its only CNN speculations nor did the developer confirm this, not even the design team knows it.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1895543

EDIT: they released a new tender of this tower stating the following

Quote:
Name : The Tower Project - Dubai Creek Harbor
Description : Construction of a high-rise tower with a height of more than 928 meters.
Territory : Dubai
Updated : June 13, 2016
Status : New Tender
http://emiratestenders.com/SearchResult.asp
This is the most official news we got so far so I think a better fit is a title like that

DUBAI | The Tower | 928m+ | 3045ft | ??? fl | Prep

Cheers

Are there any other active (not buried yet) visions that could be here?

Come to think of it, it keeps being said that Nakheel Tower was never officially cancelled. - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=722506

not sure where to post suggestions for the "World Development News Forums", so here it goes:

Have the mods ever considered banning picture posts like "this building reminds me of this other building". I don't mind seeing posts like that, that link to another thread, but most posts like this, just post really high resolution pictures that are totally unrelated to the project and every time i see those I get annoyed and think it could have worked a lot better if the picture was linked instead of posted directly. It is the kind of post that bothers me the most, while still being kind-of on topic. Especially when you're on phone and have to wait for every picture to load anyways.

Even if we can just report the posts and the pictures get put inside a link instead of a picture would be enough already.
