That's already very close to Burj Khalifa. I mean what are 80 more at such dimensions?

It wouldn't be the tallest for long so why bother?

Anyway the spire of this tower is already extremely long. I don't think they could extend it any more without adding actual mass to the tower, and apparently they don't need more here.

Fantastic! Have we seen the actual design in this thread yet?

I bet this is the one (with one of the proposed crowns). Whenever I tried to estimate height of this one I always got 750m.

yeah i also guess it will be the one with the hole in it aswell, most of the renders we got just was that one design. 750m-760m is perfect aswell. really can't wait for it to finally start

I'll assume its "twin" is only a placeholder in the renders patrykus posted. How is that one going at the moment?

We don't know anything about the 2nd tower at the moment. I hope they'll build something similar tall there, or at least 500m+

Yes that's quite a safe bet since once both had this very same design that now only the lower tower still have. It most likely will be replaced in the future but so far we've heard nothing new about that tower. We probably will have to wait with that until the first one is finished or at least well into construction.

yes it is the same placeholder we had for this building aswell. this building was set as a 500m building and the other one as a 400m building. since the designers of this area had a semi balanced skyline in mind i also think we have good chances for the 400m building to get increased quite a lot as well. hopefully another megatall or a 500m+ roof structure.

yep I think so too, this morning it was still the same.
There is still some preparation to do I guess.
Very strange is also that all around this area they rebuild streets
and sidewalks and also going under earth.
I guess it has something to do with general supply for that building.
Real construction might not start until beginning of next year, I think.
I might be wrong but I will let you know, still staying here for some more years.
