BK is Burj Khalifa, right? Because I'm not sure I would want opening windows or balconies in Dubai, especially not in that building (too downtown, too high, and the septic issues...).

Right. It is high, but only at the high levels. Not all of the BK floors are above the clouds, right? Now you can guess what's the purpose of a thoughtful design, can't you?

The lower floors are right above a big plaza with a lot of noise. And the BK has issues with its septic system.

Ok, you can't. Never mind.
But why are you promoting the BK's poop problem? Honestly, I'm not aware about all of those issues, but I have found this.

New photo on Google Earth. Date 5.24.2016. You can see some "roads in sand" on place, where will be this tower.

Can you take a screenshot, or give me a quick instruction on how to turn off the country redirect for Google Maps that leads me to the German version that was last updated in the 17th century?

They should make it black.

-edit- I didn't even realise I just posted in this thread, sorry.

I didn't see a difference between that and the previous photo in time.

No difference, really. But they were supposed to start the next month, so it's just fine.
I'm curious, is it really believed to be scheduled for completion by 2020?

Indeed, we're not told of the official height and if we do come to know when working on the drawings, we're not allowed to make it public. I like my job very much so even if I knew, I wouldn't say

Yes there is! A big difference Just take a look at one of the lakes that appears a little greenish. It's getting filled up with sand, so preparation works are definitely ongoing for the whole masterplan

They're filling up a lake with sand. And they live in Arabia.

What.

Shouldn't they be encouraging water?
