They can make the spire that will go above the usable floors and decks as tall as they want so I won't be surprised if it passed 1000m easily. Plus it is Emaar, I doubt they will spend that much money without breaking any records

Awesome new pics!

Since the footprint of the tower isn't very big pilling can't take very long. Should rise pretty fast too i think.

It's annoying that they doesn't release the final hight. Comparing it to the buildings around it looks easily 1000m + for me.
There's a pic showing a cross-section of the upper part with floor space. Any suggestions to calculate the hight of this part? One "small" floor about 4m tall?



Btw take a look at this videos on this page. Unbelieveable!

1000m+ would be nice but i would also be happy with 800-1000m.

Exciting news

Even though the words "It will be notch taller than Burj Khalifa" that Al Abar said is a bit disappointing because I don't think the difference between 1000m and Burj Khalifa' height (828m) might be called a notch! This is at least 173m of difference but, with these heights, it may be called a notch! I think he wanted to get everyone's attention globally by mentioning that it will be higher than Burj Khalifa!

It is a fantastic design and I hope it will get at least be 1200+ . 1 billion $ is so much for 18 floors. There is a high possibility that it will have a crazy height!

this better DUBAI | The Tower | 830m+ | 2723ft+ | ?? Floors | App

Since they said around 18 floors but they didn't give an exact number so it might be more or less

I like that tower on many renders, but I think the competitive designs that were shown in some of the videos would have been very nice too... It could turn out awesome imo, depending on how they execute the design
I also believe that they are not going to stick with the current podium design. It looks very naked and appears to be a perfect place for roasting tourists in the desert sun.
I hope for a great Calatrava podium with awesome architectural features like the WTC Transportation Hub

Ok I am not an engineer or anything so please don't take this too professionally but I tried to use math to find height and by using the first following pic and by taking into consideration that the smaller floor is 4m ... we can calculate the floor called "Openable Windows" to have a height of 54m.



Now taking this info and applying it on the second pic we got and we did the same steps we can calculate that the total height of the tower is roughly around 1240m
Using another image as reference gave me an altitude of 1300m! Considering the smaller floors to be 3.5m only (highly unlikely) I got a height of 1085m, So I would say this one should def be higher than 1000m

PS: if this calculation is true the observation deck on top would be on 1000m

BK and JT looks way shorter next to one of the proposed designs and you can see that they named the tower "Burj Al Hayat"

It's very likely that the winner design also have similar height.

Looks insane, beautiful, and amazing. Time to revisit Dubai in a few years!

Edit. 1,000 for an observatory level and 1,200-1,300 for the structure maybe?! Yes please .

Edit 2. Yep it has to be going by observatory. Why else would that particular elevation diagram put the Shanghai Tower to the right of Burj Khalifa? It's not based on structure or building height then, that's for sure. You can see little ticks / dots where each tower's observatory height is at. The one for Dubai Tower is just about at Kingdom Tower's tip meaning 1,000 meters.

Source: just an educated guess coupled with those photos.
