germantower, plz stop posting old data and pictures! I know your very enthusiastic about Burj Dubai but its not a nice feeling seeing the top of a new picture or render that turns out to be up to a year old!!!

I sugest you spend an hour or so browsing through threads 1 through to 14 which contain hundreds of pictures, renders and analisis, and about 7500 posts.

Here are part 13:

I'm not basing my opinion on pictures or just by looking at the tower itself.

I've done some comparing from the distance (many kms away), with the nearby 163m tall Falcon tower, where I can have clear view of everything, and the perspective doesn't trick you, due to both towers being at almost the same distance from the observation point.

It is totally indifferent how tall it is now.And even if the tower had reached a height of 170m at the moment, remember when it's finished it will be approximately 5 times higher !!!!!!!I know it's hard to imagine.
