I heard it's going to be one mm higher than KT.

I love how the Dubai gov is giving subtle hint that it will be the tallest but still not confirming it I'm very very excited for this one

A week old satellite pic! If you look closely you can see the site of the tower is getting really busy compared to the older images on Google Earth!

Then, KHC will double-coat the very tip of its spire with a thick paint, and again - KT will be the tallest one

I still don't think that KT will ever be finished, so I don't think it will need to be that tall to be WTB

There are signs to make feel feel that way: here are a few:
- no other neighboring project in the tower's vicinity are even started
- There has already been problems with the builder, especially at such an early stage, its not a good sign
- Saudi cancelling 20B of projects

I know the height of this tower has been discussed so many times. But my opinion is this tower will 99% surely surpass the 1km mark as well as Jeddah Tower. Otherwise why build a tower taller than BK but smaller than JT. Emaar's ego will not let him have Dubai lose the title of the tallest tower (not skyscraper) to Saudi Arabia just yet.

That's one millimeter higher minimum after KT double coats the tip of their spire.

.....also I hear Dubai Tower will have a huge built in jack system in it's base, and a spire/antenna that has the ability to rise even higher when your FM radio signal is distorting for better reception. I'm not even going to get into how high the flag pole will be on top on the spire yet, shhhhh that's a secret.

Uh-huh... They anticipate to have the tallest flagpole for the 50th anniversary?!?

Yeah I think the main reason this is a tower and not a building is because it's a lot faster to build and that way can be completed before the title of world's tallest structure ever leaves the city.

An even taller building will likely follow, barring further financial crises.

This is a screenshot from the official video by Emaar.
Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tb8e...ature=youtu.be

You can see a grafic at minute 1:07.
It shows a design of the new tower (not the current by calatrava) next to the Burj Khalifa and Jeddah Tower with height markings!

So it is another small note of the probable height of the building
And it's a hint that it is possibly a goal to top the Jeddah Tower.

The video conference with Nosferatu makes it all the better.

But still I think its a very interesting point that firms are using this as a selling point! I think Emaar "ordered" towers designs to be higher than that's of Jeddah tower.
