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 ....

Its not glassed but open. I will give you the feeling you are outside (what you are) when below the plaza.

Who said anything about shops underneath?

The retail part of the project is next to this tower not under it, plus Emaar has presented many ideas in different renders to what the plaza is going to look like so changes will keep on happening till they settle on a final design

The lower area will need to be covered if it is air conditioned.

We better hope it will! So far it's very flat. I hope they will not be too lazy to add something volumetric. Standing beside it - we would see only a huge post and most of the sky covered with a grill of wires. They have to take one 3D view from the plaza to make sure about it.

why do you criticise every single thing that isn't a perfect cube? plaza is beautiful, it doesn't need volume and the whole point of the wires is for them to cover the skies with them for one very outstanding and unique view! this is not done anywhere else ever!! you can't call them "lazy" and "flat"

Does anyone know where the water for this fountain will come from? Will it be fresh or seawater? I think this plaza is lovely with the fountains, although I would love to see a few more trees! It would be amazing if they also did a fountain show here a few times a day like in the Burj Khalifa lake, just on a smaller scale. Oh and also, any construction updates?

Does anyone know how the cross section of this building compares in dimensions with other skyscrapers? It looks like the floor space is very small but the height might be deceptive.

You've mistaken something. I didn't even post anywhere any of my rectangular (in plan) designs. But hey, these guys want to cover almost the entire sky beneath the thing, and you want to say it'd be a problem for them to come up with something better than the plaza with nothing but the pole and wires above the 180,000 sq.m of the flatland?

I can, and I always do call things what they are. Nobody should tell me what I can't.

People what matters is that work is progressing on this beast unlike that other city's stalled project that sounds like a Volkswagen model type of car.
