I think the tower will never reach 1 km. It is not possible to "just" add an nother 300m. The construction should be made for that.

ALL OF YOU!! CHECK THIS OUT!!!



Yes, GoogleEarth had a MAJOR database update, including all of Dubai in hi-res, as well as most of Brazil and who knows what else. There isnt still any official communicate in the site listing the update... so you will have to search old low res places to see what was updated!
