Like I said, if it was RT - we would doubt every single word of what they tried to interpret, but I don't think CNN makes such statements in vain. If they say it's 100m taller then BK, then Alabbar had definitely said that.

Oh my god agaIn with the fake news! So Emaar and the ruler are liars and CNN is truthful? Do you even hear yourself ... HE NEVER SAID IT NO ONE EVER SAID IT STOP BELIEVING EVERYTHNG MSM SAYS! This is boreline brain damage! Any more of this "spam" and posts will be deleted. I know people, important people in Emaar and they see this CNN claim as a joke and NO ONE KNOWS THE FINAL HEIGHT!

HE NEVER SAID IT! Stop being so gullible it's sad

The question is - if it is really so unambiguous that the height is 928 meters and CNN get this info from Alabbar (Emaar) ... Why isn't there a single indication on the website: https://emaar.com/en/property-launch...creek-harbour/
or the officially video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tb8eOV0s5bA
or in the statements of Muhammad bin Raschid Al Maktum ?

I wrote an email (~two weeks ago) to CNN and asked about the source - until now... no answer.

I can imagine that CNN get this information from Emaar but rather formulated: "at least 100 meters taller than BK" or so...

Hahaha well I think there is truth to that since he NEVER said it ever! It's so stupid to even believe it, they had him on camera and he did NOT say it for them to post it on the bottom on the screen! The whole thing smells.

CNN (fake news) might have bullied him with questions like is it going to be at least 100 meters taller than BK for him to say yes just to shut them up! But then again he not only fooled them but some other hardheaded MSM worshippers out there.

It seems like everybody's critical thinking is completely shut down when it comes to information from the press

This is not a tread for debating cnn or rt, but in this case it is definatly not correct with the Bk + 100m.

CNN's Global Gateway just released a documentary called Vision in the Desert. I watched it on the weekend, was great. Part of the documentary talks about Dubai Tower. He's a link, but it only seems to be the first part, try to find the other two parts you will like it.

Dubai is awesome. Great place to work and live or for vacation. Crazy Skyscrapers. In terms of cost there is a room for every budget range. It's addictive.

I really hope this ends up as shown in the latest renders with 80-100 usable floors or more

Also when is this supposed to reach street level and rocket up?

it depends how you want to live! You can share an apartment with 10 roommates and basically pay very cheap rent, eat cheap, use metro or your legs instead of taxis .... or you can live fancy in a fancy district and pay crazy rent and expenses!

Wait. Is that glass on the ground in certain areas with shops and trees underneath ?

I hope not. We Emirati men do not wear underwear under our white kandooras ....
