it probably isn't that tall, but 1 billion USD is about the price of Jeddah Tower, which is a 1000m tall skyscraper, a tower of the same size should be much cheaper than that.

Emmar might confirmed the world highest observation deck with the arabic version of this video

I translated the first 7 seconds of the video "to see the world as never seen before see it from a location never reached before"

The site is still a wetland waiting to be drained ... Emaar should start preping soon

Amazing shot. I wish One Dubai (for newer users, not to be confused with Dubai One) had been built.

Definitely. One Dubai was much better than Dubai One.
One Park Avenue would have been awesome from this angle as well.
