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

Please not
They have to build both towers. But with every month without more concrete releases Burj 2020 becomes more improbable.
Let's force them to build both!

Next time they run out of money to fund their ultra expensive building if only wiz khalifah could help them out im sure they'd name if after him

There's not enough time for it anyway. They haven't even designed it. The current "design" is a joke!

You don't need to hope, it's true. Iconic Tower is connected to the developer ''Emaar'' while Dubai Multi Commodities Center (DMCC) is the developer of Burj 2020.

No one knows that's the problem. They put a fence around the plot but nothing more.

Construction will start either next month or July and by construction I mean prep work like infrastructure and water drainage to be followed by pilling and real construction.

Is this just a decoration? or will it have usable floorspace? I can't tell from the models... If all anyone can do with this is look at it, then it seems rather a waste of money to me.

Well, the Eiffel Tower has, what, 3 or 4 usable floors? That's the kind of structure this tower should be compared to.

I have a feeling that this tower will be the first of its kind on so many levels. It will be sort of a bench mark for future towers or perhaps once built , no other country will build something similar since its financially not viable.

This tower Excites me more than the BK

I don't see how this concept is any different from existing observation towers. Of course, it will be remarkable structure for a number of reasons, but not so much that it shapes an entirely new category of towers.

I think it mostly has to do with its "veil" of wires. The tower utilizes materials in a way different from anything I've ever seen. The same way the Eiffel Tower is unique by means of its open structure and brass-like color, so does Dubai's tower resemble pretty much nothing else. I agree that it's not exactly in a category of its own, but it does add something new and unseen to architecture as a whole.
