Apparently traffic jams are not an issue in Dubai.

How is that possible? Wouldn't the spire be 618m-516m=~100m?

If Kelleher pops a 700-foot flapole on top of Chicago Spire, will it be taller than Burj Dubai ?

I don't like the change. With all the 'spired' skyscrapers around, i really get a new appreciation for whole, massive bodies like the SWFC.

Still a stunningly beautiful building, but they could've had the balls to stick to their original plans. Ridiculous.

From this design (here), it seems the spire comes from the side of the building, not the top.

I like the new design, it's great it is going to be higher, bad news for the Chicago spire though.

if you see pdfs elevations. the spire is on side and starts way down at lev99. it measures 209m in length. quite impressive actually.
If someone asked me, if you want this building to be the tallest in the world ,just stick a spire on or at side and it has to be higher then 610m.
you would! anything to get the title. to be in history books forever.
the official stats is all that counts.
yes Chicago spire will be higher to roof and have 30 more floors but wont extend above ground as much as pentominium will.
by measly 8m.
the sad thing is, Chicago Spire cant put anything on top due to height limit in USA. not even a 9m prick.
i think Dubai know this, seeing that designed by american architect.
but since spire has beenincluded in design, it really does suit it!
the units will now sell like hotcakes in pentominium because it will be touted as worlds tallest units!

Even though it's not really the tallest, I do think the spire is complimentary.

What a joke!

The building was capped with a sloped roof that perfectly accentuated the building's exquisite form. Now it looks like a narwhal sticking its head out of the water.

The architect must be very angry at this vain, pointless revision to his original design. The spire does not fit and draws your attention away from the beautiful design of the building.

How small do your genitals have to be to wreck a building like this?
