I don't doubt that. What I said was that I appreciate people thinking about possible negative side effects of such projects. We shouldn't call people who are concerned about environmenetal issues tree-huggers (beeing green myself ). Neither mustn't we ridicule their opinions just because we love high buildings.

I think the point is that taller projects tend to be less environmentally challenging.

Most people would agree that environmental effects should be considered in all development plans.

Very understandable complaint that is, but admit that 'greens' (or whatever you want to call them) are often opposed right from the start to anything that looks like heavy engineering will be involved, even if it actually brings great environmental protection in the end.
For instance, I know this not the time or place, but I would love to hear your opinion about atomic energy. See my point?

Who wouldn't? You don't even specify the heights. how are those two comparable anyway? It's like saying I'd rather have a planet than a spaceship. Doesn't make a spaceship less cool

Silly attempt at mocking what will be the next WTB perhaps? FYI Dubai is great clusters of beutifully designed towers AND the current and next WTB.

lol Cul,

One of the formers is part of the design team and he has advised this is going ahead with a complete redesign.

Imre has found a proposed site for the tower which was backed up by a couple of formers prior to this site being located by Imre.

Its not just newspaper articles as there have been many of these in the past few months. Its probable official information will be released by the end of the year or first quarter of next year.

i wouldn't say that it's confirmed. Mayby they are only testing to see if and how it will be possible to build a tower that high on that location.

They might need soil testing to get approval.

Wild speculation. The people who actually know when it will be launched have never said on this forum. Plenty of people guess though.

Once again, this thread has become a load of garbage. No news or anything interesting. Nothing but spammy, pointless comments.

I've been informed there is some news for this project, so the thread has been re-opened.

PLEASE: no spamming with endless pages of comments like "wow!", "cool", etc... otherwise this thread will be locked again immediately, the offenders' posts will be deleted, and I may even consider banning people.
