i really do hope this doesnt get built, i mean the burj dubai really has set the standards for new mega tall building's, i think of the burj as the empire state building of the 1930's. and it should keep the record for some time.

Im in awe! This is serious competition for Dubai. However is it wise to copy Dubai- which is really a 'bubble waiting to burst' project?

To bad this building will be build in the middle of nowhere. A visit during the construction will not be that nice.
But when the tower is completed i will visit for sure

I don't care what anyone says, it is a burj dubai looking building.

My brain is developed enough to establish this.

Can I get a amen?

I wish this building was being built in Dubai. Imagine it in the skyline of Business Bay or Dubai Marina.
