Jeddah tower I still have my doubts they will ever finish it, we're starting to see problems already as its construction halts for some time. Time will tell

The whole endeavour is still so shockingly unprofessional that it will remain doubtful whether it will eventually be completed.

By the time it does, a proper building above a kilometer in height will be well underway in Dubai.

Correct. Even the time is not right for it.

Very recent satellite pic: Notice the parameter of the tower is very clear now .. excavation and piling underway notice as well the surrounding construction going on on the district, more than 10 towers are rising alongside this giant

Not just construction - compared to the most recent Google Earth pic, about half of the lakes is gone.

What are those solar panel looking things at the top next to the rectangular lake? Those are a recent addition. are they simply solar panels?

Let's go back to the origins of the news from albayan.ae

http://www.albayan.ae/economy/local-...1-03-1.2814706

Where they state the following:

"knowlegeable sources stated that the height of this tower to be higher than 1100m and that it could reach 1190m in height!"

Which we knew it is the case from the start, but 1190m is not definit as its a prediction made with no backing up from Emaar or any other sources, plus 1190? I am sure they will extend the height to crack the 1200m treshhold

I think it should be completed in 2020 for the Dubai Expo. That or 2021 if there are delays. This should start rising pretty soon I'm so excited!

Height speculation again? Well it's designed to be as tall as possible in Dubai's soil and climate conditions, and since Nakheel Tower - as a fully usable building without support wires - was considered possible enough to start construction, The Tower should comfortably exceed the planned height of that.

On a different subject, I don't think this tower is bad news for Burj Khalifa as a tourist magnet, and not only because one is a building and the other just a tower. I'm thinking it can't be bad news because look at what a defining icon for New York City the Chrysler Building still is despite being beaten in height just a year later and several times since then. Burj Khalifa is an icon of the city, one that lives and breathes Dubai.
