i know you love Dubai and think its amazing, but there's a point when you have to ignore your sticky wet stains in your shorts and think economically and realistically.
The people in these threads/forums don't understand. I'm happy that the UAE is Americanized/Westernized and they are opening there arms to capitalism, however Dubai has a GMP of 37 billion, NYC has 1 trillion and Tokyo (our esatern ally) has over 1 trillion GMP. Yet you don't see us building 5-10 600 meter tall skyscrapers when the city population is 1-2 million... counting South Asian slave workers from India.
LO, as a New Yorker this place is a little bubble that will pop in the next couple of decades.

Imagine you were English; where we haven't had a World's tallest for over 500 years!! And are unlikely to ever have one again. We're not bitter...
Perfect, my friend pastafarian. And don't forget about some of us who never even HAD a World's tallest.

I do have to say that if they started building new york today it would look more like Dubai than Chicago. The buildings in New York are as high as technology would allow, and their shapes are dictated by the technology (tall and cuboidal). If they had complete freedom and an extra 100 years of technology, it would be very much like Dubai. Let's be fair, the empire state and chrysler buildings etc. were showing off in their day, just like the pentominium, burj dubai etc. are showing off today.

Come on guys, if you want to truly beat the CS then add about 50 more floors and fatten it up a bit. Without the spire this looked great, and the height could be raised and it still would look great. This weeble wobble needle pin thing makes it look like a discarded syringe!!!

They just extend the height of the building enough to beat the CS, using that spire...


Seriously, they are doing it on purpose, just to get the title of the world tallest resident lol


Duabi is going everything for the Guiness World Record, Biggest mall, Tallest tower etc...

I'm getting real bad feeling that this tower will compete with russia tower for height in the future. Russia tower increase to 620 then pent increase to 622, and so on....

russia tower has variety of uses.

I don't mean competition in a specific category but for tallest skyscraper in general.

Russia Tower is taller anyway. compare the two side-by-side. Only the geeks at CTBUH think that Pentominium is taller.

There is already a new render. Actually, this spire hasn't been confirmed by the developers at all. Was just in that one place.

Since when have developers confirmed design changes by press releases?
