If the highest floor on this tower is supposed to be at 1014m it can almost surely be said this tower is going to be at least 1200m tall (3900 feet) when looking at the spire height above the observation decks on the renders. Maybe this tower will possibly reach 4000 feet!!! banana:

I expect it to be BAUER Foundation. They seemed to cope well on JT.

These are not construction works (as in working on the actual building or parts of it), we discussed this before.

Nice joke! Can you enlarge it to 1 gigapixel, so that we could see the flamingos? (that's the same low-resolution image, upscaled a bit, and heavily mutilated by the JPEG quantization)

I think he meant prep or ground works and foundation works but used the term "construction" as general expression

Dubai has an old city center with many historical buildings and markets.

In the northern part of the city/emirate, around Dubai Creek. Quite charming little place with lots of historical markets.

Not as much underground, though. Unless you're referring to building basements? Dubai was never renowned for its catacombs, then again, few cities are.
