hope the new law or regulations will go through by then ( if they do anyway) so that we can really see the impact on cityscape all in one, and don't have to search and discuss and guess if it happens afterwards.

Al Burj will be taller than what was planned in the Pinnacle.

Anyways, Al Burj looks great at night but kind of dull in the day.
Wait till it's buit.

Hotels would love to be in this building and there is demand for it. So if the height limit is not changed and they let this get built, it should go up.

A building rejected in dubai has it happened before?

at least all of the never-builts have never been announced to the public
they were just proposals

eg: it's not that developers announce a 400m tower and then it remains just a proposal and becomes a never built

this is the first supertall apart from burj dubai that has been announced officially!

even al burj has not been launched. it is just included in waterfront renderins and nakheel has mentioned it a few times by the side
