Why do all of you belive that Burj Dubai will olny become "808m". There is no Official Height released so that i don't belive such silly Calculations. Only 640m at Last Floor, that is the burj dubai i think it'll become 900m+

I don't trust anyone's sources for height "predictions." So far I've heard:

below 700m
705m
72x.x m [it was something so specific it couldn't possibly be true]
750m
800m
808m
850m
950m

The simple truth is, you can guess and cite sources all you want, but plans for a tower like this are designed to be flexible, to add height at the end where no one saw it coming. And those plans don't come about until near the end.

Learn to be happy with knowing simply that Burj Dubai will be the world's tallest skyscraper, and by a margin that makes the rest of the world look poorly endowed.

So who else has the balls to take a guess and look like a fool when it's topped out in a couple years?

correct!!
I only hope that the last floor is in over 700m. People had stand at top of Taipe 101 in over 500m, they've stand on top of the Radio Masts in over 600m, now normal people should stand at over 700m

Looking good!

What makes the air quality look poor, is it just blowing sand?

Yeah, the ironic thing is that it hasn't even reached it's theoretical halfway point. It looks pretty damn close to 1000ft (305m) to me though but I'm probably way off.


EDIT:

Nevermind, CULWULLA says it's around 210m (689ft), still taller than the tallest in Austin which is only 515ft.

i was thinking if lev160 = approx 620m, then the top steel spire section which seems to reach approx 740m, (pinnacle adds a further 70m -totals 808m ),
thus you have 120m of enclosed structure which could accomodate 3o or so uninhabatble floors/platforms ,thus the 189floors we keep hearing bout?
