Well this won't be the tallest in Dubai for long and just wait and see the first mile high freestanding tower will be built in Dubai

The city is growing really fast and this week they revealed that Dubai population has surpassed 4 million when it was a bit over 2 million back in 2014. I truly believe Dubai is heading towards greatness!

4,000 is insane, it was 2M in 2013 and 700,000 in 2000. Dubai also has some of the most expensive rentals on earth and is the 4th most visited city in the world. NYC is ranked 6th. when I go to NYC its a zoo, is Dubai like that. Is it full of tourists and extremely busy. i hope so, I like crowds and diverse culture.

It is the same exact thing city of Dubai is the emirate of Dubai ... It's not like Abu Dhabi where you got many cities in one emirate so yes it is of the city.

If it has already touched 4 million and studies show that Dubai's population will be at 5 million in 2030 you can see something isn't exactly right

Yes. Yes. A hundred times yes. But at the same time, this is pretty ground breaking too. But of course, I would like to see kingdom tower be tallest for at least 1 to 2 years.

Iconic tower is different, kingdom tower is just a slimmer taller copy of Burj khalifa so I'm happy they are building it but I know this one will be more unique and iconic hence I'm more excited for it.

It looks like there might be people living outside the city, but i doubt it be more than 10 thousand people.

I don't think it hit 4 million so fast... according to google, it was 2.5 in January...
