I kind of wonder how they'll build it. The anchoring points for the cables seem to be fairly high off the ground, and they appear to be integral to the tower's stability, but how are they going to brace it until they can attach the cables? Will they add temporary cables, perhaps? Or will the below-cable portion of the tower be stable enough to stand on its own?

If you look closely, you can see that the cables are attached all the way up from the lower portion to the observation deck. During construction, the lower cables will be able to support the lower part of the tower.
When it's rising, more and more cables will be attached and support the additional parts that are being constructed until the observation deck is reached.
Oh and I'm pretty sure the very first part of the tower, where no cables are attached, will be able to support itself

The Tower Dubai will be taller than the Burj Khalifa

Looking over Dubai Creek, new building The Tower will stand higher than its neighbour the Burj Khalifa. Details here…

It has just been announced that The Tower, which will sit along the Dubai Creek, will be a “notch higher” than the Burj Khalifa when complete.

With construction starting soon, the targeted completion date for Emaar’s latest project is 2020. Whether it will be taller than Kingdom Tower in Jeddah (which will trump the Burj Khalifa and become the world’s tallest tower when completed in 2018) hasn’t been confirmed, or denied, by Emaar.

Apparently, the structure would be much stronger if they would reverse the order of the guy-wires: having the outer ones reach the maximum heights, and the central ones - to be connected at the bottom.

Somehow it's childish and silly not to release the final height. If it would be smaller than JT what's the point to keep this secret?
And if it's larger than JT, what's the problem to publish this?
It will be reach the final height in 2020, in 4 years. So they must not be afraid that someone somewhere will overtake it. The mystery about it is annoying.

Even American media is starting to talk about The tower as the new tallest!! The world is totally ignoring Jeddah Tower's existence! check this sketch from SNL It is a joke but still this tower is becoming seriously popular to be a part of this show. watch at time 7:58 and its for only a few seconds but its really cool

Tallest building in the world: Burj Khalifah

The creators of Emaar are creating a taller one, It will have shimming metal with long gold cables, it will be known as the Wiz Khalifah...

We should feel excited about that because it creates a challenge between these two towers

The tallest building goes to Jeddah Tower for sure because this one is a an observation tower

But, the tallest structure is what the challenge here is about

I have a sneaking suspicion that this tower is supposed to replace Burj 2020.
