This sounds sooo beautiful and dreamlike:

"At the top of the tower is an oval-shaped bud that will house ten observation decks, including The Pinnacle Room, which will offer unprecedented, 360-degree views of the city and beyond. It will also serve as a beacon of light at night, with a lighting system that will evoke the features of a flower bud, as it seemingly hovers atop the structure."

I am already daydreaming how breathtaking this will look in the end

TEN observation decks!!! Do they mean 10 floors for observation or 10 different, independent observation decks. If so, that would be ridiculous! Still, I hope to see this tower begin rising soon.

"Am Creek von Dubai, wo noch vor 50 Jahren nach Perlen getaucht wurde, entsteht bis 2020 ein Wolkenkratzer, der auch die saudische Konkurrenz überragen soll."

--> "...overtop the Saudi competitor"

Perhaps the Swiss know more than the rest of the world

We really need pictures of the site of the tower, even if they are from far away

I wrote a mail to RWDI and asked if they made the wind test, but no answer...
http://www.rwdi.com/services/wind-engineering/

I didn't find pictures from the model of the tower in the windtunnel.
Maybe they didn't publish it, because the model have the right scale
and would expose the actual height.

They mentioned the companies? I read the news about the wind test, and they wrote the tests were done by 2 companies but i didn't see a word about who actually did it...

This I am not sure of! What matters to me is that they did the tests Maybe they prefer not to disclose anymore info on this tower to keep the world guessing.

The foreground distraction is redundant.

If the bidding process is yet to start, construction will not start soon.

After bidding, detail engineering starts, after which manufacturing of parts (mainly steelworks, I guess) starts.
So, real construction will not start within say, 6-9 months then...?


Does anybody have reliable inside information about the real status?

What are you even talking about ... the real status is they are in ground work stage! This article posted by Emirati is referring to another article by Meed that is posted 2 months ago, which means this news is outdated and the only thing to take from it that it will be the TALLEST tower when is done

I am sorry to tell you it will be rising soon
