I just can't believe the ctbuh article that states this will "only" be 928 meters tall. There's no way Dubai is gonna build this and not make it taller than Jeddah tower. Also when you look at the diagrams this tower is most likely in the 1100-1200 meter range since the highest floor is going to be 1014 meters above ground (if my sources are correct).

CTBUH only posts officially verified information, and "at least a hundred meters taller than Burj Khalifa" is I believe the only official statement Emaar ever made on the height. That's it's going to be far higher than that is just something we all know inofficially (but still obviously know.)

Anyone know what the area under the cables is going to be? A plaza/park, or maybe another mall? Seems like it's a pretty large space. It's going to be a long walk from the street to the front door.

Emaar NEVER said anything about height!! This "100 meters taller than Burj khalifa" is an assumption thrown by CNN that spread like wildfire to the rest of the dumb media. It was never official and Emaar still refuses to give an answer to height question!!

The ONLY official statement made by Emaar is, this tower will be TALLEST again once finished! Not only Emaar gave this statement but his highness as well!! So it kills me when people still stuck to what dumb and lazy media states over developers and rulers!

Add to that the fact that the latest news we got from albayan.ae which is a local media of this tower being 1100m+ is a trillion times more reliable than CNN's.

So why did the chairman of Emaar say only a notch higher than Burj Khalifa?? 1100+ meters or more is 300 meters higher and I hope if this is right!! Can somebody explain it or it would be better to change it back to 928+ not to make this confusion because it should be official to change the height in the topic not based on expectations

for the quadrillion times

Any further baseless conversation in the matter will be deleted! Emaar said a notch at first then they did say alongside his highness that in 2020 it will be the TALLEST!

Well, the first sentence in that newspaper article is saying that some sources are expecting it to surpass 1100 meters. What is official here?

But, I hope it is right because 1100m+ is magnificent

Knowledgable sources**

Plus Emaar will never reveal its height till the end of construction its just like burj khalifa, they will win over the competition by a huge margin.

And we have an insider in the forum who saw the masterplan and gave us 2 new info:

1) last floor will be the 55th

2) last floor (before spire) will be at 1015m!

Plus the RULER himself said it will be the tallest in the world and Dubai doesn't accept to be second in anything! Unless you think he isn't sincere!

This subject is very ridiculous at this point!

Wait a few years till the new Downtown towers are done, it'll just be Burj Khalifa's top poking out then instead of the whole silhouette.

one tallest building and one tallest tower.

and i wouldn't hold my breath just yet. There is a lot that can still go wrong on either one of those towers.

PS: i learnd not getting too excited the hard way a few years ago with Al Burj / Nakheel Tower

On a different note I'm really looking forward to some big updates on this! It'll be like the UAE's Eiffel Tower.
