Thank you so much Emarati2009 !!! And Gabriel900 for being the reporter.
I thought these cranes were from the different construction sites of the island but we don't see the Dubai Creek Residences...

I just received these pics from a friend .. (sorry for the quality) with a big caption of "concrete pouring happening right now" and lots of activity around the tower as well

That is what's called a foundation of a giant thing

When will it start rising above ground?

Will it be in 2017 at least?

if they really pour the raft foundation right now it's indeed possible this will rise above ground already this year. That would be so awesome!

In this French article, the author addresses environmental concerns ("the good sustainability of the tower" which has often been advertised)
and wonders the following questions:

- How will the safety system be dimensioned in the case of a fire?
- What are the power requirements for air conditioning in a country where the average temperature is 27 ° C?
- How to manage the wide variety of uses, and therefore needs, of the tower (residences, hotels, restaurants, etc.) and more specifically lighting, which is of paramount importance for Calatrava?
- And in a distant future .. how would deconstruction be made?

I thinks these are good thoughts and I hope we will be positively surprised in the future. A "highest" and "eco-friendly" structure in the world would be awesome!

I am sure this is one of the things that they will work extra hard on, its Dubai, fires are what they dread the most.

I am sure very little power requirements since only the bulb will use it! Burj Khalifa consumes way more I assume, and since usable floors are only 700m+ that means it will use less energy since temps will be cooler up there than on ground levels

I don't see how this is an issue ... all these would have been already solved before even they started construction on that tower

Just like Burj Khalifa, this will never come down as long as there is humans around to maintain it.

Like I said before, the best means of evacuation in case of a severe emergency would be a pneumatic escape pods system.

They cut the wires, launch the engines and escape with the upper part into space

The case of 9/11 has showed us, most people prefer to die on the spot rather than run for their lives down the staircase. You expect them to even buy a parachute?

Having you see google earth this building look like almost same size as stadium?
Absolutely stunning if they complete this would be monster tourists from around the world .... Imagine up to 20 skyscrapers need hotel as well they stare at Tower from inside hotel rather than walk look up Tower
Anyone else think this when complete I assume?
If stop would be different story?

The preliminary masterplan from CallisonRTKL didn't have 20 skyscrapers, it had 20 supertalls!
