Don't get me wrong, I like this tower, but considering the importance of this tower, the design could have been better, and definitely more cutting edge

The earth could be pulled into a black hole and this building will still be in one piece...

...the burj dubai in a heap compared to this thing (engineering specifications wise)

What are you talking about? It would stand out on the skyline of Dubai. The only building that surpasses one WTC in Dubai is the Burj Khalifa which just looks like a cell tower. Other than that, One WTC surpasses every other building there in roof height, and spire height.

And third of all, it's probably not going to take 2 years to open the building up, It will probably be opened in mid 2013. Early 2014 is way off.

Here are my predictions:

7/4/12 Topping out
8/3/12 Concrete flooring reaches top
9/16/12 Cladding reaches top
10/2/12 Spire is completed and building's height is 1776 ft
Mid-Late 2013 Building opens up
Actually the concrete/marble is only at the lobby...
"and workers had begun installing marble finishing on the ground floor."

Yeah but what does the marble have to do with anything? The marble is only going from the sub level lobby to the main lobbies...the rest of the building will be fit out by tenants to their desire(besides plumbing, bathrooms ECT. that the building needs)

I love those shots! Especially the ones at night, and seeing the floors already lit up.
