"While the expected height was not revealed at Monday’s event, Mohammad Alabbar, Emaar’s Chairman, said that the site’s proximity to the Dubai International Airport will have a bearing on how high The Tower will be." ...

Thank to god we have put today the foundations for the HIGHEST tower in the world. Dubai creek tower will be the highest structure in 2020

Thank you ... I think its very safe to say this tower's title should be changed to 1000m+ ... the ruler himself says it will be the tallest in 2020 him knowing of Jeddah Tower going up as well.

The ruler saying we will not settle for anything less than first place actually means this project, and any additional structure if needed in the future.

As of now we can comfortably say what ever the height of KT this tower will be higher.

OK! We do not just talk about the tallest "tower" (maybe higher than Tokyo Skytree)...
This will be "the worlds highest MAN-MADE STRUCTURE"!!!

I have no doubts anymore... It will be higher than Jeddah Tower.

His highness from his FB account

Quote:
Today we placed the foundation stone of what will stand as the world's highest man-made structure by 2020, the Dubai Creek Tower. The new tower sets another challenge in the history of human architecture: a race the UAE deserves to lead. We strive for new achievements. A new heart for our city and global landmark. Humankind has no ceiling or border but our imagination

Finally, the show is getting started

What an interesting thing that this tower will be rising almost as fast as 1 meter / day to be completed in 2020 (365 * 4)

and at the same time, the huge foundation is yet to be finished before even start rising !!!

If this building surpasses jeddah's tower before it becomes the world's tallest building, then this will be the biggest joke in the history of construction! Let's wait and see
