As it looks on the renderings, there will be huge amout of cables and the whole area around the tower will be characterized by them and their poles.

They should start thinking about it very quickly.

Also i wonder how important those cables are for the stability of the building. Near my hometown, a 300m transmittermast dropped, when a cable was cut during a storm.

What will happen if someone put one ore more bombs to those poles or try to cut cables? Will it drop?

As i said. The Dubai fountain was released after the burj by 3 o 4 years, and now it is the largest fountain

They may have some thing in their mind but they are not releasing it yet

no, this is a tower, but not a freestanding structure.

building means, more than 50% of the height is inhabitable and mast means, no space whatsoever is inhabitable (except for maintanance of course)

This is a non standard, but there have been similar structures proposed before:
1, 2

^ According to the article there is actually 2 contractors will work with each other!

-samsung and BESIX ( http://www.sixconstruct.com/Projets/By-region.aspx )

-ACC & another Lebanese company ( i think it is called united contractors )


If Samsung win the contract we might see the red cranes again

When the tenders are in, they will need some time to evaluate, attune details, and negotiate.
This will not take a few weeks, but in practice several months for such large project.
(A tender for such project is not one A4 sheet, but a thick book).

And after that, contracts are signed, and detail designs start.

So, it will take some time before things really start at site...

^ you are right. HOWEVER, i think the article is talking about the main contract. So while they are talking about the things you have mentioned, another company will be doing the ground works, actually as we saw preparation has already started

And let's hope they will be simple enough (like iStuff), so that even an ape can operate them same efficiently as a human.

Good point! It makes me doubt the announced ETA. But I'm afraid JT is surely double-crossed before it even tops out (because of some major architectural mistakes that create a big-time hindrance).

Maybe even the detail design was already contracted, and being made at the moment.
But also the detail design is a tremendous job on it's own.
As is the manufacturing of parts like the steelworks.

The overall schedule is extremely tight.
And thus exciting...
