You are aware of the distance between DM and BK, right?

Yes there are more then 15km between DM and BB/ DBD but it could only be 10km in future, if they try to connect the skylines more.

It will be more connected! Why work against this connection, when it is possible to do?

It doesn't make any sense to build 15km worth of towers rather than build towers where there is demand.

But a super tall often marks the city-centre, right? I don't think that this abandoned plot is the city-centre.
I mean, that it looks better, when the skylines are more connected.Not completely connected.
And the city itself, would be more connected. Better two city-centres, which are 10km far away from each other, then two city-centres, which are 15km far away from each other, IMO.

I second that.

Let's just say it must have been huge demand on that desert burj kahlifa was build on

I like the idea of slowly bridging the gap between BB and JLT, but not by building this on the Signature Towers plot- I'm still hoping that can be resurrected someday.
A better location, IMO, is on SZR, not too far from the Emirate Park Towers. Possibly the Lam Tara Towers' plot.

No not on SZR. On SZR many buildings 'tack' to another.
A megatall and landmark like that has no business there, IMO.

-edit- But maybe in DIFC? There are many nice plots!

Your missing the point because what you wish for is not located in a Free Zone.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to make a building of this size, and height dedicated to commercial use, or only office space to be financially viable?

The reason the Burj 2020 has been chosen to be built in this location is because of supply, and demand. The demand will definitely be there once the existing supply dries up in the next few years. There is no space left in JLT, and that is the reason this building will rise to the height that is rumoured.

There are so many commercial, or mixed use buildings in BB, and SZR that are not even close to leasing all of they're space. Now how would a building of this size be financially successful there?

THE DUBAI GUYS posted this in the UAE thread,

Local contractor mobilises for Dubai Marina super-high-rise tower

18 February 2014, 6:28 GMT | By Colin Foreman

There are two other 100-storey-plus towers in the design stage in Dubai. The tallest is the 660-metre-tall, 115-storey Burj 2020. The project client, Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), expects construction work on the Burj 2020 tower project to start in 2015. The tower has been designed to be the world’s tallest commercial tower.

Dubai's Burj 2020 plans world's highest observation deck.

Will offer 360-degree view of Dubai's landscape.

Is there any initial layout or drawings or even sketches..any idea how it will look like? Been excited for this project since it was announced.

I really starting to think it will be 729m+ It will have to be taller than Zhongnan Tower in Suzhou.

it won't be far off of burj khalifa makes me also think, not more than 100m smaller, which is about that as well. Probably still under 800m though, because if it was very close they would just raise it a bit to get the cities title i guess.

I think it will be around 750m tall. Great, but I hope the design is as impressive as the hight.

The highest observation deck in the world. Lets see the highest now is 488m high and as far as I know Dubai, it will be much higher. So maybe 600m?
