Building a suspension Bridge is very very different from a tower. On a suspension bridge u put up two towers first then run one or two enormous steel cables over, and then take wires from it down to the bridge deck as u move along.

For all CNN and fake news lovers this will be a huge disappointment

Quote:
Design Confidence is working on the Fire and Life Safety strategy of the iconic Observation Tower, which is going to be over 1,100m high. The tower will house a boutique hotel, vertical gardens, a 360-degree observation platform, restaurants and function hall spaces.
http://designconfidence.com/portfolio-view/the-tower/

This is coming from an engineering company so now in addition to the ruler and developer an official company is stating this one is 1100m+.

There is some end of March dated pic on Dubai local thread. Not above ground though. Leveled with the ground @TM.

The occupied section of the tower is almost the same size (height and width) as the Chrysler Building. Even if it gets classified as an obs tower, it'll still be the first of its kind.

Annnndd as promised guys ... up close and personal with the construction of this tower!

The site was huge I lost my way walking in it and literally had to use google maps to get out, the circle is just out of this world!! The great news is I was able to make it to the CENTER of the action ... here's a taste of it .... Enjoy

The Site from Afar:





Into the Circular Plaza:











AAAANNNNDD FINALLY, THE CENTER OF THE ACTION!













And to give you an idea of how huge the place is I took a couple of videos


The Drive to the site:



Inside the Plaza:



The core



Finally to those who are wondering, yes there was activity on site, and lots of cement trucks drove by me! the place is insane

Only the major piling works and the retaining walls are done. They are parts of the "foundation", indeed
