The top looks unfinished.. and it doesn't match the rest of the building.

It feels kind of strange without AP Design coming in to rant about the sloping glass surfaces accumulating dusts and sand.

Also, the cancelled Mumbai DB Tower was my favourite skyscraper design of all time. I'm so glad they got AS+GG to bring back that form factor here in Dubai, in a megatall height as well!

Am I the only one who thinks this awesomeness looks like a modern version of a lighthouse ... especially with that crown ... they should rename it to the lighthouse tower

DUBAI | Burj 2020 | 660m+ | 2165ft+ | 115 fl | 300m+ | 984ft+ | Prep

Not bad but I still don't think anyone can handle this type of tower better than Mr. alabar, Almost Impossible for DMCC handling such project!

DMCC needs to focus more on the current towers and bring in more activity to community & business owners around the lake. Still many shops and offices empty without even being rented once.

For such project, need huge funding & a proper return on investment. Can't build a tower and keep it empty like many other buildings in JLT.

If you look at the mega towers of emaar like burj khalifa and the tower you will realise the different.

It's a Briliant idea but with the exact concept of emaar In building such towers!

India Tower finished in a pointy tip though. The same could be applied here, having the building continue sloping inwards towards a tip instead of finishing with a flat roof, would make it about 800m.

Pointy tip? Quite the opposite. It finished in a pointless pit.

Found this:

We were speaking on the 50th floor of Almas Tower, the DMCC’s headquarters. The tower stands out across the south Dubai skyline as one of the tallest buildings around, but will eventually be eclipsed by the tower of Burj 2020, the focal point of a new ambitious development in the free zone.
[....]
Later this year, the Dubai Diamond Conference takes place at the same time as the World Diamond Council annual meeting. Some star speakers are lined up for the events.
Before then, bin Sulayem will unveil the final design for Burj 2020, the new master development adjacent to the DMCC’s current location in Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT).

"It is a mixed-use project, like JLT, but with two super-large high-rise structures, both of which will be bigger than Almas.
It really is something. The main tower will be a super-tall building, but I don’t want to get into a race.
I don’t want to go bankrupt building the biggest tower in the world in competition with the Chinese. But the scale is huge.”
