Only a $138 million! Man that's cheap. Trump Tower in Chicago is roughly the same height and size and that one cost $750 million.

A $130 million will barely buy you a 30-40 story residential building where I'm from. Gotta love the cheap labor.

Yes the labour costs are lower here, and yes there's confusion. $138M is NOT the total cost of the building, it's only the value of the contract to build the superstructure and glaze it. Design package is different, and so is project managment, site enaimbling and piling, MEP work, interiour fittings, lifts sup!ying and instalation, and so on ...

Not Imre, probably one of the enginers of Zetas Foundations, the Turkish piling contractor.

Rising? Then I'd call this "Damac Lows" so far.
But "rising" is hopefully a good prognosis for the near future: foundation is done, and project ready for next stage, I think.

Cool Building. My favourite one in Dubai. There are a lot of ugly skyscrapers there (Burj Khalifa (just my opinion )) so that supertall is certainly a great additon

Is it even possible for Brits not to write about Dubai in this manner?

What the final decision about the height? 420m? That means no height reduction as we talk about few months ago?

Sorry for my english speaking

We don't know. It may be 426m. It may be 420. It may 100F. It may be 85F. Or 70F. Or less. Many figures poppen up over time. Until there is some solid proof of a redesign I'm sticking with 100F/426m. Just to be optimistic
