Of course this is the Trident tower. First it was reported as 418 m on AEDAS website, but soon it was removed and someone said back then, that one of the reasons was also the incorrect height reported.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! READ THIS!!!!

Waterfront tower to be world’s tallest landmark
CONSTRUCTION UAE
16 Mar 2007

Al-Burj centrepiece set to dwarf Burj Dubai at 1,200 metres

The Al-Burj tower being planned by local real estate developer Nakheel will be the world’s tallest, according to those close to the project. Construction will begin later this year and form the centerpiece of the Madinat al-Arab at Dubai Waterfront.

The final height of the tower has not been confirmed but it will be taller than the Burj Dubai which is expected to exceed 800 metres. Companies involved in the project under pre-construction agreements last year have said the initial height was 1,600 metres but that was scaled back to 1,200 metres.

“The tower’s height is confidential but I can confirm it will be taller than the Burj Dubai,” says a source close to the project.

Nakheel has previously only said that Al-Burj will be one of the world’s tallest towers.

The piling and excavation package is due to be tendered soon. “We expect to receive documents in a few months,” says a local piling contractor.

The tower was originally conceived as the focal point of the Palm Jumeirah and known as the Pinnacle. It moved to Dubai Waterfront where it was renamed Al-Burj and received a major design overhaul (MEED 27:10:06).

The consultancy team is led by the UK’s WSP and includes Australia’s Van Der Meer Consulting and US-based Leslie E Robertson Associates. A US team of Pei Partnership Architects and Axis Design Group (ADG) completed the preliminary designs.

Two other kilometre-tall towers are planned in the region – the 1,001-metre Mubarak al-Kabeer in the Silk City project in Kuwait and a 1,022-metre tower in Manama, Bahrain.

The water is just an artifical pond around the tower. Parking is conventionally located on the basement floors.
