The figure is for the whole Nakheel Harbour development, which among other things included 20 or so other towers and an artificial waterway. Remember Wikipedia is cool for things with a huge knowledge base but poorly updated on a lot of subjects fewer people are well-versed in.

Very interesting, I have just found out about this project today..

I have been reading all the pages from 1 to 88!!

Question, what type of fundation are they doing?

Shouldn't it be something like this?

No.
This is a raft foundation on circular piles for the entire Burn Khalifa.

The Dubai Tower has Barrette piles and a circular foundation for the tower (vertical force downwards).
And longitudinal foundations for the cable sets, probably of enormous weight (pulling forces upwards and sideways, varying with the rope inclination).

Having this monument built next to a large industrial area is strange

The industrial area will be very important in few years
It will be between two mega projects, DCH and Meydan one
Am sure at some point they will develop the area

The building in the foreground is nice. Is that an actual project?

You can see the Elite Residence tower in the background of the far right side of that render.

By the way these 2 twins next to THE TOWER are making alot of appearances in the latest Emaar Renders!!

They definitely look like 500-600m high! Most prob Emaar will release these when THE TOWER starts rising.

I would expect them to be around 300m if I'm not wrong. At least 500m is way too high and would not look like that in the render! the floor count doesn't make the 500m logically possible

If they where 500-600m that will make them the world tallest twins
Something was planned for DCH before the tower

exactly and that's why I've heard a lot that the original twins weren't cancelled! Plus this tower is crazy high so 600m in close proximity will look as tiny as the address boulevard (370m) looks next to Burj khalifa

If they actually turn out to be 600m the world will lose its mind, 3 megatalls close to each other! That would be insane (just like the tallest block back 10 years ago )

I think its just a perspective issue, if you approximately count the floors, its less then 80, they are about 320-350 tops.

I am basing what I am saying according to my sources who told me that tallest twins aren't canceled, and Emaar latest rendering of the district that had these twins appearing in all of them. I am just connecting dots, plus nothing is yet certain about anything in that masterplan, so floors number based on a much changing renders isn't reliable at all. It is maybe a perspective issue but the other way around
