I agree, The number of days left for Expo 2020 are almost equal to the number of meters in height

1 meter / 1 day would be such an interesting construction speed to watch daily in the following years

Theoretically, it can be topped out by then. But practically, it's not likely that everything will run smoothly and with no problems at all.

You are right, but then it will only be topped out.
Remaining cladding works and even interior works would still have to be completed. I believe The Tower at DCH will not be done before 2021. That's just a realistic perspective on this huge development imo

It will remain a race with Jeddah Tower.
With much technical excitement !


And, who knows what kind of even higher construction might be announced somewhere on this planet, before 2020...?

Dubai ... they will go for the tallest legit building after finishing this one! I believe they might even announce it just before the EXPO and using this international event to market it.

I wonder if the cables are really "draped".
They could start moving in the wind. With certain eigen-frequencies, this could become tricky...
Yes the anchor blocks will also be substantial, and i'll bet that the entire arc has the cable anchorages tied together with keyed concrete blocks, so it will act as a monolithic single unit, (one on each side, but not connected to each other) as for cable oscillation and movement, there will be some obviously, but the woven lattice pattern of the cables should inhibit any excess movement, (again the sheer weight of the cables come into play here) and when woven in such a pattern, the cables will act more like a single unit, than individually, and finally, when the mast is built up to the level(s) that the cables tie into, any construction past that point will be stopped until the cable system is built to a reliable support status, if the cables are stranded, this will take a while,

Hey DubaiM and Scion,
this particular post (http://skyscraper.blog/2-amazing-thi...i-creek-tower/) you are referring to is a few month old, so possible lots of the information is outdated. I will sit down the next days and get it updated. There is a lot of stuff going on at the site as Gabriel900 puts correctly.

Nakheel Tower will rise from the ashes?
In fact, the development of Palm Jebel Ali looks like a logical step after completion The Tower at Dubai Creek

Good god no, the Palm Jebel Ali development is the worst pile of nonsense Dubai has ever created. It's an unattractive copy of the Palm Jumeirah and just another wet dream which turns out to be impractical in real life.

The location close to the huge harbour is very unappealing and the development itself is totally isolated from the rest of Dubai which would practically turn it into another own city with lacking infrastructure.

It's already enough that the Dubai Marina is 12km away from Downtown. We don't need another city centre which is 30km away.

The next logic step is perhaps to complete Meydan One, Dubai Creek Harbour and Business Bay (which is full of empty plots) to finally create a dense, connected city.
From then on, Dubai is able to improve the existing districts by constantly redeveloping and expanding them.

It's absolute nonsense to build even more districts from scratch as the city has enough and many existing ones remain uncompleted to date.
