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article posted by Emirati is referring to another article by Meed that is posted 2 months ago, which means this news is outdated and the only thing to take from it that it will be the TALLEST tower when is done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

Well if the construction progress of JT will keep that slow pace, it will probably never claim the title of the tallest structure on earth

If the pace continues to be that slow, Dubai will have a taller building top out before it, too.

The disappointment is that we are still not 100% sure if it will be above 1 KM, all the articles don't really say that

I just hope it will be more than 1000 meters. With this design it will be just like a dream coming true

We sadly don't have REAL PROOF to tell that it will be taller than JT. But, I hope it will be much higher

Nope, it is a non-free standing tower with only few observation deck floors.

So, the tallest building title has to go for JT. But, this one might be the tallest structure

2020 is so far

Lol, we are not sure if construction is stopped yet, it might be due to the financial punishment on Binldin Group

I'm just asking because you and some others are saying that it will be higher than JT like there is official PROOF for it

BTW, I always hang in tallest towers threads and I was hanging out here since I heard about the project. Where were you?

Well I mean if you were Emaar paying a shitload of money on a new tower that is 100% at least 928m, will you honestly settle for it being 80 meters lower than 1000m. Not only that, they know Jeddah is building a new tower that is 1000m+, won't you stretch the spire to make it at least 100m taller than 1000m answer with all honesty dude

Because they now sh*t about this project - as well as us. The fact we do have though, is that Emaar puts a whole lot of effort into concealing the height.
And this particular fact is proof enough that the height is something special...a number with four digits.

Come on! We calculated almost the exact height long time ago! It's super-clear the height is projected to be just a tiny bit under 1,100 m.

Yupe, honestly it should be 1000m + and Emaar might be keeping it as a secret. But, man 1100 meters is really great with this design. I just hope your guess is right and I really don't know how we should wait these 4 years. Even if it is 928 meters like what this article is stating .. still so great

I figure they're already so close to 900 meters with Burj Khalifa that it'd make no sense to just stop under 1KM. I mean, I too, can't guarantee they won't stop sub-1000 but it really wouldn't make sense. I'm sure Emaar is asking "What can we build to not only be a cultural / city icon yet again but what is mind blowing to people?" Hence I think 1,100+ is a good place to be. Not unrealistically tall, but just tall enough to be significant over the Burj and JT.

It may end up freakishly tall, cause with 1km they might as well just build a building.

Yea I know, but it seems like some people around here are still not quite convinced.

I suspect CopyLeft is being sarcastic or something, the renders were released before they even did the wind tunnel tests and obviously don't show the exact height.
