I love this building and really tall especially for residential. In addition, Dubai would be among the best city in the world, no doubt about it.

They are finally starting.

I wonder if this will still be the tallest residential building due to Chicago Spire? Or I guess it will only be the second tallest?

I believe they will start construction soon. I hope so. But for such a tall building, they will need some time to do the ground work to be sure the earth around it can handle the weight and pressure. BTW -If someone knows of anyone who is going to live in this building, email me.
