Sorry about my horrid photoshop skills.

I quickly slapped this together to get a sense of how huge this thing really is!

This is not a Mega project.
It is a Giga project.


Man-man, what an enormous amount of work this tower is gonna be.

The lighting that this Tower will have is amazing, you can see it if you go back a few pages!

I believe such that amazing view and that type of tall .. they should keep the other buildings little far from that tower to give enough space to show how much beauty of that tower not to be close like that .. please Emaar think of this.

The tower is surrounded on all sides by 250 meters worth of plaza (500m diameter) After that, there are decently wide roads, which are then a few more meters wide. Even beyond that, there are models and diagram out there of all the towers' massing models and the potential views of the towers they have.

This tower is mostly being built to raise the value of the surrounding district. You can charge extra for a view of this tower. Emaar almost surely thought of the different views of the tower, as that is its main purpose.

That's fine ..
But when you imagine about that over 1200 m tall tower, you can recognize that this 250 m is maybe still not enough to give the eyes the suitable space to enjoy this exception view .. (it will be surely amazing view) !!
I believe if it will be more (400 m for example ) will be better.
Even for the Festive events and fire shows it will be better.
