I'm glad the Jeddah won't have the tallest structural in the world, I would much rather see Dubai have that title.-For that reason I'm excited.

It has just been announced that The Tower, which will sit along the Dubai Creek, will be a touch taller than the Burj Khalifa when complete.

With construction starting soon, the targeted completion date for Emaar’s latest project is 2020. Whether it will be taller than Kingdom Tower in Jeddah (which will trump the Burj Khalifa and become the world’s tallest tower when completed in 2018) hasn’t been confirmed, or denied, by Emaar.

Inspired by Islamic architecture and part of the Dubai Creek Harbour development, the tower will be an architectural and engineering marvel due to its eye-catchingly slender design, the mesh-like structure around it and, of course, its mammoth size. It will cost around Dhs3.67 billion to construct.

The new tower will, in the words of H.H Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai and Vice President of the UAE, “be as great as the Burj Khalifa and Eiffel Tower”.

Exactly how tall the tower is will likely be revealed at its opening, but Emaar has confirmed that it will be taller than the Burj Khalifa (burn).

The architectural team confirmed that visitors will be able to go to near the very top of the tower, and will be able to stand on a 360 degree viewing deck, while the VIP observation decks will “recreate the splendour of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon”.

Well, why would they make it taller than Burj Khalifa but not Jeddah Tower? Logic dictates that it will be taller than the latter, as well.

A touch taller!!! really???? what does that mean? but still they won't say the final height?

This is so vague but I can't believe they planning to finish it on 2020! wow

more news about the use of the tower ...

Quote:
Unlike the Burj Khalifa, the new tower designed by Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava Valls will not be a traditional skyscraper but more of a cable-supported spire containing observation decks, gardens and possibly other tourist facilities.

So if the cables really are for support, not just for decoration, it wouldn't even be the world's tallest free-standing structure.

we don't know yet ... I believe this one will be taller than Jeddah Tower but it makes sense not to declare that now for many reasons

Here's another article discussing its final height

Quote:
The final height has not yet been announced, with officials claiming it will be a closely guarded secret until opening, much like the specifics of Burj Khalifa had been until it took the crown of 'world's tallest' back in 2010.

This would be just beautiful! It would look so amazing on the skyline.

Something similar he designed was the Chord Bridge

More news ... the official name it seems to be THE TOWER

Quote:
He added that the tower will cost about US$1 billion to build, and will be completed by the time that Dubai’s Expo 2020 event begins. Piling work to create its foundations will begin either in June or July, Mr Alabbar.

The tower, which has been designed by Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava, will have about occupied 18 floors, which will feature a boutique hotel and 360 degree observation platforms.

Mr Alabbar added that the tower will link to a new “mega retail” element of the project, details of which will be announced within the next two months.
