A few days ago I was in the sales centre and the guy who was in charge told me just to calculate right and you would eventually end up with around 1300 metres

I seriously don't think its going to be that tall like how are cables supposed to hold this 1k+tall stick and the construction of his tower is going to be very weird. The cables will be attached near the end of this project so what is going to hold and keep the core stable at this height? Literally this building is going to look like an space elevator during its construction phase.

They normally use magic to do so ... it involves blue fairies cyclopes and some good witches. I heard thu this time they will use dragons in construction!

The middle east in general doesn't care much about skyscraper efficiency, not like they have ton of free space in the desert anyway.
It's more about style and luxury than building them to save space

But this tower got the cake, while burj khalifa is way more efficient


Just look at chineses or western skyscrapers, they have a better ratio usable space/heigh.

This video shows how would Dubai look like in 2050 and they included The Tower in the future skyline



I doubt that Dubai will have only 2 tallest building/Tower by then

If this was made for any other city I would be like yeah right ... that's science fiction but for Dubai this is def an understatement for how will the city look in 2050!

As you said no way Dubai will only go for 2 megatalls ... I gotta say the part where it shows SZR is really cool and how far Dubai is already on that track .. great one.

Anw if I am not mistaken this vid is taken from the World Government Summit 2017 that started today ... I am pretty excited to see what the Crown Prince will launch during this event ... he said he will be launching a new future project for Dubai

This is what is worrying me a bit. It is pretty close to the flight paths of dxb

Emaar market this tower in one of their videos that it will be very close to the flight paths in a good way

One question and I know this might sound utterly insane but is it possible that in the long run, like in the far future, DXB won't be used for commercial flights anymore and all flights will be diverted to Maktoum airport?
