I am not criticizing this project, I am just discussing Calatrava's track record.

the best answer i or anyone could give on the second question is, probably,but i certainly would not consider it safe, as for the first question, i'm sure the cables will rise from anchorage one, then up and through the mast, then down to anchorage two, on the opposing end, with the cable pattern though the mast alternating as well, remember, the cables pass through the mast for over a thousand feet of its elevation,

Just wait until the structure raises above ground level.
From that moment on, anyone can make pictures of it..

Similar to a render already seen but the bulb is a bit different. I can't even imagine with Meydan One !!

I promised my daughter to visit Dubai when this Tower is completed.
She cannot wait.

Could be a good time for my planned future visit, too. When this tower is completed, I expect near-completion at Downtown Dubai, CityWalk, DIFC, DWTC, Emirates Towers Business Park, Dubai Harbour, Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Lakes Towers and I expect significant progress at Business Bay, Azizi Riviera, MBR City/Meydan, Dubai Parks & Resorts, Dubai Water Canal City and probably a lot of other interesting projects I forgot. Whenever I visit I'll make my camera overheat till it melts in my hands.

I cannot imagine that the Tower will be completed and open for public in 2022.
That's 5 years from now.


Let's wait how fast it will rise in 2018.
The first 700 m is the easy part...

Honestly I don't care if this finishes in 2020, 2021 or 2022! I am more excited to see it rise and witness its growth over time .. alongside Burj 2020 and hopefully Dubai One as well
