I wonder if this is the first supertall to be this much anonymous while it is almost starting to go vertical

I bet Emaar is keeping evil secrets

The way I comprehend this information, the "crown" starts at 1007m and ends at 1146m. With a service elevator available for the 1007-1124m portion of the crown. And from 1146m onwards, the real spire begins. Am I correct?

In the scale model sitting at Dubai Mall, we can see the spire is rather short relative to the bud, I'm hoping the spire can actually pierce into the 1300m+ territory.

Scale models aren't meant to be accurate .. the spire is height will keep on changing with every new render

Yes, I think they have a chance. Since Jeddah Tower is growing slowly

I made a new documentary about the next future tallest skyscrapers.
Dubai creek tower is featured in the documentary.
Enjoy it everyone !

For those who missed it:
Here is a short part of a speech from Santiago Calatrava at the Dubai Design Week 2016
in which he talks about the tower:

Interesting titbit:

According to Nemiq's numbers, if we cut off the tower's uninhabitable stem, and just plop the base of the bud on ground level, the tower will still be 435m (1146-711) to the highest mech floor and 634m (1345-711) to the spire tip!

Marina 101 is only 432m so even before counting the spire, it will still be the 2nd tallest thing in Dubai

Is it just me (probably is) but I kinda see a similarly between this beautiful tower and the Dubai City Tower (aka Dubai Vertical City)...
Also we all know Emaar and its probably going to be even taller than anyone expected, may even up to 1500 meters (5000 ft), any taller than 2100 meters (7000 feet) would kinda be a waste (sorry if that offended you) since no one is really aiming this high, and insane (its already insanely tall)...
Where every other city working on the 600+ meter buildings, its Dubai that's doing this.
I mean its only in Dubai where supertalls just look like normal everyday skyscrapers (although Middle Eastern and Asian architecture is frist class, just look at Shanghai, or the Emirates Towers, if these buildings were women (or men, if you a female reading this), than no one could resist them.
Also we all know about construction of skyscrapers that are this tall... Its probably going to take more than four years to complete, maybe by 2022, 23, 24,or even 2025 it will be open...
Do i make just points?
and hopefully Abu Dhabi won't have to pay for this tower like they did for the Burj Khalifa

Dubai you never disappoint us

If I'm looking at these 3 pictures correctly, it looks to me like they destroyed a Golf Course!

No, the pictures are from 2017, 2013 and 2000 respectively.
