I just read through the whole thread many interesting Discussions.

And regarding height i foresee it to be Precisely 1296 meters which happen to be precisely 4x as tall as the Eiffel tower pinnace height that was built for the 1889 World expo. and upon completion of this tower in 2020 it will be 131 years since the Paris World expo.

will be totally amazing to see the construction start. also with a height of 1296 meters The tower will need to rise 7.2m per week on average from July the first to be completed by january the first 2020 which is 179 weeks total. Or roughly 380m a year.

And the architecture on the top inside and outside is just wonderful looks like a modern Church/Temple for Us Skyscraper lovers.

Isn't it bad that they are destroying the canals that bring cooling water in?

Canals and cooling water?

There isn't any river connected to the Dubai creek. And as such it's only some movement with the tidal water flow. The only exchange of water comes from The boats Mainly Dhows moving in and out.

And this is the middle of the desert in the middle east the Water is like 25 degrees celsius in the Sea at winter during night. and 35 Degrees celsius in the summer. Not much cooling in that.

For IT, 2020 could be realized, in case of a steel tower. If they really make speed...
For JT, I doubt more and more if even 2020 will be realized.

I am just noticing how accurate and well made the illustration made by KillerZavatar is! especially bcz we now know the stem width of Iconic Tower is 30m! I just predict the spire on top will be a notch taller maybe even make it till 1200m

According to the proportional scale from the mock-up model, it's not more than 1,100m. But more likely 1,097.3m (3,600ft).

they are meant to be filler drawings until better artists take their time to make a good drawing and as it happened, for this specific tower someone already did make one to phase out my drawing
