I think he posted the picture as proof that the tower is U/C. Not to give an update.

Just to compare the height of DCT with the others. All diagrams by various makers on SSP.

Yes, especially considering that the vast majority of the world's population has no exact knowledge of what a mile is.

It is nowhere officially confirmed that this tower will become 1345 m, or even 1100 m.
We'll just have to wait patiently for an official statement, or completion.


(Off course, I also hope for the highest possible !)

and that if this tower wasn't 1400m+!! Don't worry guys after this one most probably Dubai will start on a 1 mile tower in a decade time ... I am so glad we are living in time where we can relive the iconic excitement of the construction of BK but with a tower almost of double of it in height!

I think we're all a bit overexcited here, we don't know the height, that means we could end up with a 1000m high tower which is awesome but not as tall as we're are expecting and that's a possibility , I think we should stick to the proof and stop speculating so much about its height. It's gonna look amazing no matter the final height.

Yeah I love already thinking about the "what's next?" And considering the follow-up to this tower will follow the same business model of a landmark tower in the middle of a whole new neighbourhood again another question is the "where next?"

Could be something unexpected (which we've come to expect), or maybe something that already exists on paper will be converted into a similar scheme, Al Bawadi for example.

Cmon dude wake up ... Emaar released a video stating the FACT that this tower if we stack up 8 of it on top of each other we end up with 11 km!! I mean unless you waiting for CNN to say it then good luck

Then there is my insider info that it is 1300m+ and we have elevator shaft drawings that states the last floor being on 1015m (which might be outdated and this number is way higher now) ... I mean what more you want! Emaar wont do what others do and spoil the excitement and they wont spend billions on a tower that barely is the tallest ... they will do it with a HUGE margin.

For existing ones I can think of:
1. Dubai One at Meydan One
2. Nakheel Tower at Nakheel Harbour
3. Al Burj at Waterfront City

In terms of completely new land:
1. Emaar Hills Estate vicinity of MBR City
2. Jebel Ali horse track
3. Expo site vicinity of Dubai South

They need to make a tower fully habitable to the top floor. No more empty space.

I want a real tower. No more hundreds of meters of spire or elevator shaft.

If only that monitor was a project by Emaar, the information would be very trustworthy cause it is the developer of the tower at the end

We just want to know it that 1350 meters height is a 100% correct info

And if it is, then why not changing the topic to: DUBAI | Dubai Creek Tower | 1300m+ | 3609ft+ | 55 fl | U/C
