This can for sure be built by 2020. Remember, CTF Guangzhou started in 2010 went on hold for a year and they are putting the finishing touches on it now.

CTF:
- is nearly 200 meters smaller
- has way less floors -> less core jumps and therefor less pouring cycles. You can not go much faster than one pour every 3~4 days.
- is situated in a developed area with little landscaping and infrastructure works needed.
- started preparation in Q3 2009
- is far from being done at this time. They still need to dismantle a crane, remove the exterior elevators and clad a gap in the curtain wall that is running from the ground level to apporx. 500m height.

Even if you substract the few months CTF has been on hold, the construction time hardly stays below 5 years.

Exactly my thoughts lol

Wow very good news before going to bed! It will connect The Lagoons with Downtown perfectly and looks very good. Just imagine these needles ( Burj Khalifa, Dubai One and Lagoons Twin Towers) in the skyline dominating the whole city!!

I still think the design is in the early stages. The final product will look different, but I believe with the current design they want to tell us, that they tend to the simple, elegant and minimalistic architecture! Cool! That is what Dubai needs!

It is possible but not likely my guess is it will be nearly complete but not yet open in 2020. However I think its definitely possible. They just need to start fast.

A fountain reaching that high is possible but the dancing part is the tricky one! how is it possible to control the swaying of water when it is shot that high?
Wind will take it everywhere and it will be a nightmare for viewers lol

I wouldn't mind getting wet when it's 45 degrees outside

I think it kind of makes sense... the fountain in Downtown became a huge tourist attraction and was/is being used to advertise apartment buildings all around it, and of course to increase their value quite a lot. It seems to be a relatively safe investment that will pay off multiple times.

None of the links say anything about the height of the fountain, only the length. That's horizontal, not vertical.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum clearly states above that the dancing fountains will be the highest worldwide reaching 442m vertically!

Well, there is a difference between dancing fountains and normal ones shooting up in the air. The tallest dancing fountains are currently the Dubai Fountains.

is there much of a difference though, dancing fountains are just more than one, but i guess the 400m+ one will be in the middle and just one of them. So it is just a fountain you can turn on with full pressure, no pressure or somewhere in between, or am I missing something :p
