The foundation area is huge becouse the base of the building is very big, comprising a shopping complex.

This building's height will not be increased further, even that I hope for a easily achievable 8meters more, just to go also over Taipei 101.

This building will have the biggest podium of any tower I can think of.

I just wanted to remind other forumers about the Burj Al Alam location on relation to Burj Dubai:

And to think that the Burj Dubai hasn't even reached it's full height, it almost can't fit in that picture, it truly is a behemoth of a structure. Plus having a 501m/818m so close is whack, I thought HK was crazy with the ICC and 2IFC gateway.

from the location pic by AltinD, it looks that it would stand quite lonely for a while.

There will be a 250m tower just across the road that'll be up much quicker than this

As Malec said, all that area is under construction with towers, but Burj l Alam will be the tallest of them.

There is no such project. The Signature (Dancing) Towers with the Dubai Financial Market Building, are the center piece of Business Bay.

Don't forget that most of Business Bay towers wouldn't even qualify as skyscrapers, being on the 20 - 30 floors range.

So far only 2 of the Dancing Towers, Burj Al Alam, Emirates Hotel Twin Towers, The Scyscraper and one from Damac's Lotus complex, are known to be supertalls, i.e. more then 300 meters tall.

Are you sure about the Damac one being over 300m?


Al Habtoor Tower is most likely cancelled anyway

The shortest one of the four has 64 floors, so it is possible for the tallest to reach the 300 mark. Plus they bought one of few plots with unlimited height.
