That's counting that huge spire, but the building will be "only" about 50-60% taller (you know it better), wich is a lot, but not as much as double.

Yes only one day and Cullwulla will release the new construction update diagram.

Btw we are talking as we exactly know that BD will be 808m tall but what is when the tower is finished and "only" 700m tall.Wouldnt this disappoint us?

Well, it cant be 700m as it was stated before that the minimal height is 705m, but since then they have released many times that the tower is not going to be less than 800m, but if you ask me, i wont be dissapointed... Compare 509m's to 705m Huge difference already.....

Ok it is a big difference but 800m+ sounds better.And i am a scraperfan so the motto is the higher the better.

of course, but bottom line is 800m is double 400m.so you will have to look up twice as high to see tip of spire of burjD.
