wow. perfect. Looks like its already an attraction for people, taking photos etc.. and its just a model.
When built, it will likely become one of the must-visit places for tourists in Dubai.

The "official" video of the introducing of the model. A bit longer than the other one. It shows several lightings.

WOW! If the bud itself is equivalent to an 80 story building, that means it will be between 280 and 320 meters long! That really just shows how massive this whole tower is going to be! Now put that 80 story building at a height of around 700 meters, add a spire and voilą, we have the tower. I can still not believe this is actually happening, everything is so exciting.

I thought before i saw this new pics the bud has a round shape, not edgy. But it looks awesome like this, and definitely heigher than 1200m.

I don't understand the length of foundation .. other sources say its over 72 meters in depth, other say over 100 meters in depth .. here it says 60 meters! Is it more like a combination of all these or what cz its really confusing.

Emaar finally gave us a crucial clue ! We can stop debating the height... According to my calculations, it is 1345,5m !!!


(Dubai Mall's new screen, 700sqm), from 20sec. to 26sec.

Here is how I proceeded...

212 500 000 px (~ Dubai Creek Tower equivalent) X 8 = 1 700 000 000 px
130 769 230 (Burj Khalifa equivalent) X 13 = 1 700 000 000 px

Cross products (proportions) :
212 500 000px X 828m (BK) : (~ 130 769 230 px) = 1345, 5m (DCT)

Lol it's wrong... Burji is displaying on 10 panells tall and Creek Tower on about 12,5.... which makes Dubai Creek Tower about 1km tall... Anyway it is just the advertisement diagram it is probably not correct.

Lol (bis) I didn't referred to the number of panels used to display the towers... but to the precisions brought ( X13 & X8 )...
That's no longer the estimate at this stage.

If the Bulb is 80 floors this Tower has to have a height of a 300 story building.

Wow, great find SiriusCane! This looks pretty (discreetly) official In the end of the video (2:55->) the text says "....will reach 11 kilometres", and then clearly shows "Creek Tower X8" 11 000 metres, divided by 8 = 1375 metres Only time will tell, but this is pretty exciting!

My thought of seeing it since it says laid on top of each other (though I wonder how thick a pixel substrate is so I think they rather just mean the physical dimensions).

1,700,000,000 pixels so
1,700,000,000 / 13 = 130,769,230 pixels per BK or 157,933 pixels per meter

So 1,700,000,000 pixels (DCT x? but x8 of it's height) - x meters.
1,700,000,000 / 8 = 212,500,000.

130,769,230 / 212,500,000 = 0.61
0.61 / 828 = 1,357m

Or instead we have 212,500,000 / 157,933 = 1,345.50m (about 4,412 feet)

I figure some of this offset is because of rounding but maybe I'm mistaken. Both heights are close enough IMO though to be reasonable if we take the displayed fact at face value.

Aligns also with everyone I see who did math before I went and did it anyway haha. Woo.
