Thanks Gabriel! Also likewise, thanks to your map post for showing The Tower in the context of Dubai. Of course from some areas I had seen the Festival City tower, and while I did have a general idea from being there for a bit over a week last year, the actual location for The Tower compared to the original Downtown / BK area was still something I hadn't grasped. That's just a nice short drive away from SZR / BK, actually. Cool

I am very excited for this one! Emaar won't settle for a regular mall here, we have seen some crazy proposals for this, let's see what will they come up with

Edit 2. Yep it has to be going by observatory. Why else would that particular elevation diagram put the Shanghai Tower to the right of Burj Khalifa? It's not based on structure or building height then, that's for sure. You can see little ticks / dots where each tower's observatory height is at. The one for Dubai Tower is just about at Kingdom Tower's tip meaning 1,000 meters.

Source: just an educated guess coupled with those photos.
kind of like the nakheel tower but wayyy better!

There is no better design than that of (former) Nakheel Tower. Ok, maybe Russia Tower

I said it before and I will say it again, Nakheel Tower isn't dead yet Let's just say Dubai wants to be number 1 in everything, and freestanding structures is one of these things

If they decide to make it a practical freestanding tower, I'd like it to be like that one:

The glass fencing on the terraces is 2.9m tall - for the safety measures, like in BK.



The original picture is 3936x1920pix (click to view).

I believe this building will be completed and will be timely as the construction of burj khalifa who successfully built. developer Emaar very good reputation in dubai, where they have a lot to build tall buildings and will continue to grow each year. live how they are strong in funding for the needed funds are also quite large.

Crazy project. Can anyone explain to me why there's a need to build such supertall building in Dubai? From what I understand, the city is surrounded mainly by a large desert, which should mean plenty of cheap land nearby.

The economic logic for building supertall buildings usually comes from land being limited and extremely expensive (i.e. because your in an island like Manhattan, Hong Kong or Singapore). Since purely from a construction point of view it's always more expensive to build the same number of square meters on ten floors rather than 100 floors, then cities that have cheap land around them usually tend to grow out rather than up.

They aren't content with having the second tallest tower in the world?

I suppose such towers are intended as more of a tourist attraction. The Burj Khalifa for one put Dubai on the map for many people when it was completed as the tallest building in the world.

I'm sorry, but which building is this? Is it the Jeddah Tower? Kingdom Tower? I'm confused.
