That's because it's mainly an observation tower, it's not really meant to be a full on skyscraper.

this tower will bring new concept for skyscrapers.

But unlike Burj Khalifa, the new Dubai structure will not have residences or offices integrated into the structure.

But there will be room for a boutique hotel.

I like those buildings around the main tower even they are placeholders currently. This huge "beast tower" needs skyscrapers and a few supertalls around it. imo it would look really scary otherwise

amazing!
in the video it appears much closer to burj khalifa at times, i think judging the height is impossible as they take artistic liberties. it will be really tall for sure though.

And did you read the description on this video by Emaar?

It says and I quote "In the heart of Dubai, surrounded by the ecosystem that is Dubai Creek Harbour, a vision is born. Built to exceed all limits, the new icon of the 21st century will become a part of your lifestyle, a friendly face that guides you home.

Santiago calatrava said it would “comparable in height” to the Burj Khalifa and the Eiffel Tower in Paris

My opinion about tall of Iconic Tower is:

BK + Eiffel tower = 828 + 324 = 1152m

Maybe he meant that the Eiffel Tower and Burj Khalifa were by far the tallest structures on earth at completion.

It looks like a half-pitched tent, not exactly the next Eiffel Tower.

Thanks for the video!

It's nice to see a more detailed render of the base in the vid

For that comparison to hold it should at least be 1200m though
