so the highlighted in red means "comparable/Egual to" and it reads that the height will be comparable to Burj Khalifah

"Comparable/Equal to" in its glory not numerical height. there is 0 doubt now this is gonna be the tallest lets just not ignore the title that clearly states that this tower will be "the tallest"

Given that it is a "simple" tower, my bet is it'll be taller than Jeddah Tower by this time next year.

4 years ago everyone thought the Dubai construction madness was a phase and it passed never to come back. Boy how much they were wrong! The city is now booming and better than ever!

Groundbreaking of Dubai's The Tower to take place today

http://khaleejtimes.com/storyimage/K...20161010080512



Set in the heart of Dubai Creek Harbour, The Tower, designed by Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava Valls, is set to be 100 metres taller than Burj Khalifa.

Dubai is once again reaching for the sky with the groundbreaking of the emirate's brand new icon, The Tower, set to be taller than Burj Khalifa, will take place today.

Set in the heart of Dubai Creek Harbour, The Tower, designed by Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava Valls, is set to be 100 metres taller than Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest tower standing at 828 metres.

Emaar Properties launched the project in April this year. It is described by Emaar chairman Mohamed Alabbar as "an ambitious project on a never-before scale and design" which will require "high-precision engineering across all its facets".

Scheduled to be delivered ahead of Expo 2020 at a cost of $1 billion (Dh3.67 billion) to build, The Tower "will serve as a beacon of hope and positivity for the city and the region," he added.

The Tower, however, is not a "traditional skyscraper" but a slender tower evoking the image of a minaret anchored to the ground with sturdy cables. It will have observation decks, hanging gardens, a world-class boutique hotel, and other tourist facilities.

Its design, chosen after a competitive pitch from some of the world's top architects, draws inspiration from the lily and evokes the image of a minaret, a common feature and distinctive aspect of Islamic culture, while the elongated oval-shaped bud and geometric texture set the template for the observation decks.

At night, The Tower will emit a 'beacon of light' from its peak featuring a 'flower bud' design as a floating element.

The Tower serves as the vibrant core of Dubai Creek Harbour, a 6 sq. km world-class master planned development that is two times the size of Downtown Dubai and located 10 minutes form the Dubai International airport. The waterfront development is centred off the Dubai Creek, the cradle of Dubai's history and culture, and in close proximity to the Ras Al Khor National Wildlife Sanctuary, protected under the Unesco Ramsar Convention and home to over 67 species of water birds.

Oh yes!! I knew that Emaar can always be trusted! Just think about it guys: When was the last time, a Megatall proposal actually reached the excavation stage?
We were and still are disappointed about Nakheel Tower, Dubai One, One Dubai, Al Burj and Burj 2020, but this one is different! The first time since BK, a new Megatall proposal in Dubai finally reached the construction stage and went past the planning stage. I just hope everything goes well and that Dubai will claim the title of the worlds tallest structure once again
Cheers

That's right, but the tower never reached the excavation and construction stage

It just kills me how stupid media can be! CNN (maybe one of the least trustworthy networks out there) farted that this tower will be 100m taller than BK without any proof or statement from Emaar or anyone who matters, for all local media outlets to start copying and pasting this number without any sense of logic. Emaar only said height will be revealed on completion, why can't you stick with that to avoid false and misleading news!
