I think your little "mistake", which isn't truly one , is effectively due to rounding...
You round the relation (0.61) down... Indeed, 828m =/~ 1 357 X 0.61 (= 827.77)
But, 130 769 230 : 212 500 000 = 0.6153846118 (or ~ 0.61) ( obviously this number doesn't exist in the fractional form)

The difference is quite significant, indeed, 1 357m X 0.6153846118 =/~ 835.07m and 828m : 0.6153846118 = 1345.500008m

500m taller than Burj Khalifah would be really something

Did the project start yet? Why its status is "UNDER CONSTRUCTION"?
Thanks for answers

Or we could just simplify the whole thing, and do 828x13:8= 1345,5 So somewhere around 1350m (+/-) is a good estimate for now

Absolutely great find SiriusCane! That's some real detective work, simply amazing! Huge thanks to you


Here's the single picture to fully showcase Emaar's inadvertent leak

Another calculation estimate?

Hi Gabriel - I haven't been to the Dubai Mall in a while but when you go next time, can you estimate the height and width of the model in meters? Assuming the model is more or less built to the correct dimensions, we have another way to confirm the 1345m back-calculated height. Perhaps I should first ask whether the width of the tower is already known?

Also, do you know which crane company has won the project for the tower? I heard that Liebherr was bidding but saw Potain tower cranes in previous photos...

Thank you very much Scion !! Thanks all ! Yes, we have to be enthusiastic because this is a stunning height. It could almost be a mile high tower... Here are some pics, from above, of the replica in Dubai Mall.

OMG, is this height of 1,350 meters is for sure ???

That would be something higher than what I have ever dreamed of if true

Yeah of course but I am sure the model isn't accurate it terms of dimensions .. there is so many models for it each has a different length of bulb/stem/spire

Concerning SiriusCane amazing find, I don't want to brag but didn't I push this 1300m+ for a while now and you guys were skeptical I will always say that when Emaar wants to build the TALLEST they dont do it with a small margin but they try to do it in a way no one would ever beat it in the near future

And believe me its not a "leak" or a slip from Emaar .. they know what to release to the public and what to keep hidden and while my info is that the tower is 1300m+ Emaar new info makes me question how much higher than 1350m will it get cz believe me, they want us to settle on a number to surprise us with an even higher one ... could 1400m+ be a possibility?? time will tell

Edit: One thing I noticed is in the latest renders from Emaar ... the tower seems to have a taller bulb while spire is shorter now .. they might have increased the number of floors without us noticing

Looks like the guys at the conference didn't cheat on me 👍🏼😊 😀
We are going to see future rising in more than one way. Can't wait to see it when construction works start in fulll swing - long lives his highness - and the construction workers

Well thanks, I think. Math isn't my strong suit. But I gave it a shot. Either way we at least a potential yardstick (or is that meterstick) for what could be accurate. Mind boggling if true.

YES ... this structure will trump all other manmade structures once and for all ... Emaar wants to build a height that will be historic and unbeatable for the near future.

Let us not forget that Emaar did not declare yet the official number of floors on this thing ... they might cheat the system and make it a legit building Very exciting times we live in .. Dubai is making history again in less than 10 years ... God bless Dubai, its ruler and all its residents

That is actually exactly the same as the Troll A oil platform. I haven't found a good picture of it that truly conveys the scale of that platform, but this screencap of an SSP diagram might give some idea of how much concrete that is:

Also, here's an Imgur album. Just imagine those four legs and the ballast cylinders stretched a little and placed on top of each other, and you've got some estimate of Dubai Creek Tower. Good thing they're not planning on moving it, I'd say...

I think the official name could be Dubai Mile Tower, or One Mile High Dubai Tower
