I've found an article which dates back from may 2013. Visibly Emaar already announced its plans a long tile ago.

Great news! The Dubai map has been updated, indeed.
Here is The Tower's site location with the updated map: wikimapia.org/#lat=25.198&lon=55.355&z=19
The new map looks around 3 months old, right? My estimation is based upon the Business Bay sites condition, mostly.

Go through google earth on it can be seen an update, though the tower itself has not been updated

I guess they will keep it more or less secret until it will be topped out.

It will be at least 2x bigger (by volume) than The Address the BLVD's, but significantly less massive than the one of Burj Khalifa.
