Are we going to have supertalls & megatalls in this area ?

That looks like a massive new city. Who's going to buy all that property? Is the rest of Dubai already full to capacity?

Of course, the towers in close proximity could surpass the 500m+ mark, there is already a twin supertalls brewing for the Island district soon to be revealed by Emaar! Dubai breathes supertalls

I can't believe that it will be ready on time. Such an unusual supertall unlikely will complete in three years, considering the experience of Burj Khalifa construction.

I can tell you that after they finish the foundation works and first 10 floors, the speed will increase fast, because of the shape of this building you can use the same self-climbing formwork for all the way up until they reach the part which gets wider.

With this shape and that kind of formwork they are able to cast 2 floors at the same time - 2 floors walls and columns, first floorplate, second floorplate - than again 2 floors walls and columns etc.

We will see one floor per 2 1/2 days - that's my opinion and also my hope - and i'm working as a construction foreman since 2007.

Why? Were there problems during the construction of Burj Khalifa? Yes there were, but it had nothing to do with the tower itself. The issues were external ones like financial problems in 2009 during the crisis and the cladding company that went bankrupt.

One issue that the Burj Khalifa had was that during daytime pouring concrete was impossible. Even after sunset, they still had to add ice to the conrete mix to be able to pour which delayed construction. The same will apply here.

That is true, but even figure if they're able to pour say, 4 meters or a floor at a time:
--365 Days a year.
----Minus 52 days for a day off per week.
----Minus the other 13 days for Holidays / etc. (probably conservative)
=300 days of work time
At a 3 day cycle per formwork rise, that's an estimated 100 jumps at 4 meters a jump so 400 meters per year.

Two years straight would bring us to about 800 meters mid-2019 by the time they are working on the steel section of the tower probably. So while finishing this by mid-2020 seems honestly very close, it's doable I think. Depends on if they achieve a 3 day cycle and how many days off (if any) are taken. Also to a lesser extent depends on how much concreting needs to be done for the superstructure.

No sources, just my observations and guesses.
