Actually, faster than 1 meter per day is a LESS THAN MUST type of requirement to finish before 2021 with 1200m < 1300m

Which means that we should be able to see it clearly with at least 40 meters height BY THE END OF JANUARY and be targeting 100 meters BY MARCH

Seems so difficult to me ... but, time will till

See, this is why I am just confused. That stem is MUCH wider than 30 meters, it looks just as wide as the avenue in front of it, which must be around 80-100 meters wide.

This render has not to be considered because it ain't accurate. It has been made for The Address Harbour Point, not for DCT.

The hype is for real however I would be surprised if it is taller than 1100 Meters.

I have no idea what the cladding on this tower will be, but slipform construction allows concrete to be poured so that a structure rises 0.3 meters per hour, which could mean it theoretically would be possible for it to rise 7.2 meters per day. However, we can assume this tower might rise 1-3 meters a day (more realistic assumption) up until the 800 meter mark when the bulb starts if they manage to use this form of construction. This speed would mean the tower could reach bulb height by the end of 2018 or middle of 2019, which seems very quick, but considering the speed on the foundations here, anything seems possible. Obviously cladding the tower and attaching the cable will also take time but the actual concrete pouring can be done quite quickly these days. So, it could be possible finish the tower by 2020 at least externally.

I have seen some skyscrapers rise 350m in a year. This is a tower, so it seems possible, but we will see. the tricky and slow parts will be much further on the top though. Especially the part where the wires connect to the main tower will be quite interesting.

are you referring to the Dubai Mall Leak or did we get an official word as well?

I got word from an insider source months ago, way before the Dubai Mall leak that this one will be 1300 and will come close to 1400m.

I did mention this back then but most of you guys didn't take me seriously .. here is what I said back in January

I strongly believe because of many info I'm getting that this tower will easily be higher than 1300m, I might dare to say the final height may be around ~1400m (for now).

Watching this beautiful monster sprout will be a very interesting thing to witness.

i didn't want to be too optimistic for the fear of being disappointed, but that attitude changed a week ago. I'm now fully on board the hype train.

----------------

old picture and most likely reposting, but here is some info about the surrounding towers.



for reference the two 53fl towers in the bottom left is Harbour Views and left to it the white towers without a floor indication is the 70 floor tall Address Harbour Point

-----------------

I measured the width of the inner shape on google earth and it comes out to be about 18m in diameter (google earth might not be really accurate at all though, i don't know)
I also checked out the awesome fan-made diagram on sketchup that was posted before and it's diameter at the very bottom of the tower comes out as 30m.

So in this hypothetical situation we would have 6m space around the tower for room for emergency and mechanical systems, walls, cladding and such.

If this is realistic already or if the tower will be a little skinnier or wider we will know by next year

Wow! Interesting plan. Looks like there will be several supertalls and dozens of skyscrapers surrounding this project.

this is only a random study ... they are NOT following it, in fact there is recent Emaar tower proposals that is contradicting to this plan.
