I think a lot of people underestimate the width of the core. A number of members claimed that it is going to be a mast rather than a tower. Let's be realistic: The core is going to have 8 elevator shafts and a minimum of two staircases. Additionally, the concrete walls have to be very thick to support a tower that is one kilometre tall. All together, the core will be way larger than the one of other TV-towers.

Thank you ... the thickness of the core will be almost the thickness of that of Marina 23 tower in Dubai Marina. The whole thing will be almost 3 of the marina 23 positioned on top of each others so no doubt it will look extra thin although it is NOT!

This tower will be awesome when its completed .... the bulb on its top part will give it a very unique appearance, standing just in front of it will be very overwhelming and I don't think we have any tower out there that has such a slick shape all together.

That's quite an evil mockery of Al Seef tower's architecture from 23 Marina designers

I'm a bit disappointed with the fact it's officially The Tower yet. It would be too funny to drive a car out of its parking branded as "The Car", while sipping "The Drink" and talking on "The Phone".

It will be the world’s tallest tower – a structure that will define Expo 2020 as the Eiffel Tower defined Paris for its 1889 World Fair_ The National

they should be creative in naming this tower, it needs an iconic name, in 2 words or less... i rather not see it named after a monarch...

Name alongside height are officially a secret till 2020

Burj Mohammed Bin Rashid is taken in Abu Dhabi

My guess is either Burj Dubai, Burj Rashid or a more poetic name like Burj of Tomorrow or whatnot.

Imagine if they took after Eiffel Tower - which was named after its designer - and named it Calatrava Tower. The guy would be truly immortal.

Another video in arabic but to the middle of it you can see them clearly starting officially the construction work on the foundations.

Burj Dubai would just be confusing though as Burj Khalifa was called Burj Dubai before.

They should just call it the F.U. Saudi Arabia Tower. I don't think this was even a dream in the sheik's head until he saw the Saudi's building the Jeddah Tower, and suddenly he said, wait a minute...
