I see you haven't started taking the 'crash-course to SSC forum rules for newbies' just yet.

If he really wanted to know the occupancy rate of Dubai, why wouldn't he just type it in the search bar? It brings up about 250,000 results. The point is, ask a stupid, indirect question, get a stupid, indirect answer.

Exactly. It's off-putting for "newbies" and makes people not ever want to visit the site

that's in less than a month, that would be great. cityscape always has great projects in models that we didn't know too much about.

It's the easiest way to publish and market it to investors. I'm sure we're gonna see some great designs at Cityscape, including Burj 2020

In the UAE forum some one posted from that they heard from DMCC insiders sales are so successful that they are considering raising the height of this building to the world's highest.

The building would no longer be strictly commercial, but mixed use.

Well, making a tower of that size purely commercial was/is a stupid big gamble

it's not the first building with over a hundred floors that would be purely office, worked out for Taipei in the end as well. But yes, it is for sure more risk than going mixed use and i do not see any negative effects of going mixed, especially with top floors for hotels, seems to be a waste to not use them.

by the way, cityscape started today, so are we likely to get news for this tower the next few days?

There's someone hard at work in the Dubai city compilation thread with pics and infos from Cityscape, but nothing on any supertalls yet.

BTW, I pre-registered for the Cityscape but didn't go neither yesterday, nor today. Maybe I'll drop by tomorrow morning .... however rest assured there will be no renders. They haven't officially closed the design competition yet.
