...is it me, or does that tower look somewhat like Malaysia's PNB118? Might be the angles.

There is no percentage! It is already approved and they released recently a new tender of it! It is just a matter of time.

Okay. I'm as excited as anyone else is about this. Im just worried that it will be like Nakheel Tower, or something.

But I actually didn't know this was approved so that makes me feel a lot better.

Should Burj 2020 and Iconic tower be ready for the Expo in 2020? It's mid 2016 now and I can't see how this is going to be realized. Has there been any of such big projects that finished on time?

I'm worried about the Expo 2020's Project it self. i saw a google map picture of the plot which was from november last year, and there was barely anything happened there! Only the old expo Mark which that wasn't finished either!

It doesn't take four years to build something as simple as that. The 2017 Expo in Astana only really got going with construction last year, and last year's Milan Expo was put together pretty quickly, too. That's just from what I've seen on skyscrapercity. So don't worry.

It's a shame. Dubai sands do not tolerate any sloped designs. This pyramid will be dirty like hell most of the time.

I think the planers have this problem in mind and find solutions to avoid permanent dirt on the faccade.

So your solution is a building designed to avoid any dirt on it's faccade by choosing a design with minimal work to keep it clean?
If this is your solution Dubai would be a desert of rectangle functional smooth cladded boxy buildings without any deco elements....
