Sorry. There is no news coming in. However, CityScape Dubai is just around the courner so we can hope new offical announcments and renders will come out of it. CityScape starts around Oct. 6th.

I doubt there will any news on Cityscape. The public release of Atrium City Towers and details of the Jumeirah Gardens Project and probably Muhammad Rashid Gardens as well, would be way more then enough big news for a single event.

we'll see mile high tower infos in the first week of october, but we don't know the time when the information on this tower will be out; only that it will be before the end of this year. I reckon the name will no longer be AL BURJ; one thing for sure Nakheel is working on it.

Well I wish they would do some of this "annoying" shit here where I live (in Los Angeles). The sad thing is, that we have plenty of rich developers in this neck of the woods but we wont be seeing anything like this realistically for years and years...

I think it's safe to say Nakheel is going to build this tower. But the credit markets are a mess around the world. Their are plenty of skyscrapers in the US on hold and elsewhere. Their are going to be some casualties.

Looks OK. Maybe 1.2km. Observation deck at the very top a nice touch. Wonder if this is the design, looks better than old design. Much more massive than Burj Dubai!

i would estimate 1000-1100m when the comparison to the burj dubai is correct. and to the design: this would explain the round plot maybe, who knows

Agreed, what good is all the height if it's a spire and you nobody can enjoy the magnificent view.

Btw, can anyone see how many "facets" it has? Is it made of three like the old design, or four, maybe even five? Hard to see from the tiny renders.

Right, I've measured this in Photoshop.

Burj Dubai = 466 pixels
Tall Tower = 649 pixels

If we assume Burj Dubai's final height will be 819m, we can do a quick calculation to find the height of the Tall Tower:

649 / 466 = 1.3927

1.3927 x 819 = 1140 metres.
