Does everyone think the developer realised it wasnt much lower then SPIRE, so what the hell.?
i think pentomiuim looks better with the spire.
Chicagos SPIRE people will be pissed. they cant even add a 9m spire to beat pentomium?
atleast SPIRe will be tallest building in America and tallest units outside of Dubai.

That is just an oversized antenna. I don't like this spire. It does not fit with the rest of the tower IMO.
Pentominium does not need it to look great.

u dont know what ur talking about, even if they burj dubai didnt put up a spire the tower will still be the tallest. and it's only a 51m spire, and how do u know there's going to be a spire on the Al Burj ? have u seen the design ? and evne if it did have a spire it would probably look good on it. the spire on this is a different story. Dubai puts spires on the tallest structures because its a islamic architecture thing.

even in your diagrams you show that the tallest unit in the CS is 100m taller than in the pentominium.

Think they should make it higher to 150 floors and than the tower will beat the CS also !!!

Antenna looks shitty, my opinion too !!

The burj Dubai needs it's spire, it would look ridiculous without it, that spire is integral to the design, the earlier 705m versions without as big a spire looked messy and incomplete. The spire on BD is essential!

Every article we have had about the Al burj in recent years has said it would be topped with a 200m central spire. OF course it is subject to change and nobody has seen a render, but if we go off the only information we have then it definatly has a spire.

The spire on this building is crap, this building does not need a spire, it doesn't fit in with the design at all and is essentially an immature attempt to make it the worlds tallest residential building. Nobody other than those on this forum give a flying **** about such records, and they get beaten quickly either way. All normal people see is whether a building is pretty or not. This isn't pretty any more because they've ruined it with a 100m toothpick. The chicago spire hasn't been changed and is still beautiful. Thank god they don't play silly games and stick a similarly ridiculous spire on top of that.

I dont like needle-like spires to begin with, and i doubt they have any communication service purposes here and look unnatural in regards to the rest of the design (which already is questionable to me altough i see many like it).

Make a real spire as a prolonged part of the structure, or dont at all. Its an eyesore.

Black smith it appears that this spire is added for you and you only. Everyone else thinks it's a pointless waste of a good design, but you think it makes it "win" some apparent competition. You should feel honoured that the developers care so much about your opinion

I agree with many of you guys... the spire just doesn't look right. In my opinion, spires should not be solely used to cheat to get the building taller than it's competitors.

Come on, guys, the important thing about this porject is, that an other impressive building (>600m) is about to get built!
... and I think the spire rounds off the roof perfectly.

What annoys me more is, that they show (like they always do) no adjacent buildings in their renders. I can't remember their names but I have in mind, that there will be some quit big ones next to it. And this will make the building look and appear totally different.
