Figures say that between 85 - 92% of residents in the UAE are foreigners.

We don't have official heights for both towers but it's quite sure that the Dubai Tower will be clearly taller.

This deserves to be fully posted

Emaar Properties has announced the completion of the pile foundations for what will be the world’s largest building, The Tower, upon completion in 2020.

The first structural facets of The Tower will be visible with several dedicated teams already on-site to accelerate the development work within the next couple of days, the developer said in a press statement.

The pile was tested to a load of over 36,000 tonnes, setting a record for the maximum carried by a single foundation pile to date.

More than 145 barrette piles have been used to form the foundation for The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour, which was designed by Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava Valls.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, laid the foundation stone for the tower at the official ground breaking ceremony in October 2016.

The project is currently on schedule for a 2020 completion with the final height of the structure yet to be revealed.

The Tower will be part of the 6sq km Dubai Creek Harbour, which will include one of the largest retail districts in the world.

Emaar has also unveiled several other projects at the Dubai Creek Harbour, with residential projects including Creek Gate, Harbour Gate, The Cove, Dubai Creek Residences, Creekside 18, Harbour Views and Creek Horizon homes.

From the article, I conclude that only the piling is finished, not the foundation itself.

Not sure if the foundation itself will come below "zero", or above.
We will see it soon, I hope.

This tower is so unique will trump all other towers out there! We can't expect anything less from Dubai

This will start rising very soon ... As the article states, expect to see things go upwards very soon

Edit: "More than 145 barrette piles" .. I think this qualify this project to more than just a "tower"

I also hope that we are going to see more pictures in this stage of construction. Any webcam or official updates would be nice to see.

The apparatus for the pile load test is something I'd really like to see!! The other large pile testing in Dubai of note was at the Burj, which was a crazy monstrosity just to measure 6000 tonnes.

Over 145 barrettes in just 5 months, that is really impressive and relatively fast for a project like this
