Not sure what KAEC have to do with it but infrastructure is irrelevant, look how much of it there is around the kingdom tower Anyways I stand for what I said. I'm sure you have to prepare specific soil tests in specific locations for a tower that tall. And I also considered a tower that don't need excavation in my predictions.

I Hope the design of the Dubai Towers stays the same. Is this realistic?

not sure, since a 1000m tower and additionally several supertalls seems unlikely. the tallest of the Dubai Towers is 550m after all. However i could imagine they keep the designs, but make smaller ones, maybe shortly over 300m instead of three buildings over 400m. Or keep the designs for the Dubai Towers except the tallest one and instead of that one build the 1000m Tower

btw, this is the thread for the Dubai Towers: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=415209

I would prefer a new design, as different as possible to other proposed tall towers. It would also be cool if it didn't have a spire, or at least, if it did, stick an observation platform on top!

Just imagine now the Nakheel Tower back on track

i would like a design like al burj the most, but i am happy with anything pretty much. even if it is "just" a 900m building with a freedom tower like spire added to it, it will still break many records. However i believe we will see a pyramid shaped building again with a side-inverted pyramid base again as the general shape. Burj Khalifa tought a lot about building so tall and like Kingdom Tower has a similar shape to use these lessons, The Lagoons Tower might aswell. But well maybe this tower even gets designed by KPF and we get a no-spire glass giant, who knows One can dream
