^ This is not technically anything, it falls between definitions, we'll have to wait for CTBUH to make an official call on this building before we can decide how to define this tower.

Just revealed by CNN that the tower will be 100 meters taller than Burj Khalifa and construction will start in July.

Well I wouldn't take this too official .. knowing Emaar they would have made a big deal and a huge event with a press conference in Dubai to reveal the height of this new tower; they won't be satisfied with it to be mentioned for a split of a second on a random segment on CNN! A tower being 930m just 70m lower than the 1000m mark? lol I very much doubt it.

BUT if he was serious it will be a 100 meter higher than maybe he was talking about the highest accessible floor before that long spire!!

At the end of the interview, Mohammed Alabbar has revealed the size of the upcoming mall: 1200 hectares, to be 2+ times larger than Dubai mall. He has actually made a mistake, because Dubai Mall is only 50 hectares, not 500. So expect here a 120 hectares mall, which is 2.4x larger than Dubai mall (1.2 sq.km, not 12 sq.km).

@CopyLeft: I dont think Mohammed Alabbar has revealed the size of the upcoming mall, I think he meant whole project "Dubai Creek Harbour" with 1200 hectares, to be 2+ times larger than "Downtown Dubai". Because, shortly before, the topic moved to the "neighborhood".

And that's why he specifically said "Dubai Mall is around 500 hectares, but the new mall is going to be around twice as large - 1200 hectares"??
There is a mistake in numbers, indeed. But a different one. He actually meant to say "thousand sq. meters" instead of "hectares", in connection to those figures.
The entire Emaar Creek Harbor area is a bit over 6 sq.km, or 600 hectares (12x The Dubai Mall area).

I think we have to wait a long time before someone will publish the final hight. Or to figure it out when the tower is in a state of construction we're able to estimate the hight in the end.
But i really doubt that this one will be smaller than KT. That would be extremly stupid, much too stupid for a smart man like Dubais leader is.

I guess, this render is just supposed to visualise the basic structure of the tower rather than the architectural features...
