The gap betwen SWFC and SC will be 88m, not 300m. (a very chinese gap )

580m-492m=88m

Love that new render!! I also like the spire. The 'balcony' areas look very cool in this render. I'll bet those are expensive!

They boofed it on the SWFC and Jin Mao. Jin Mao is 421m, SWFC should have been 509m, and SC 597m, but the topic is PENTOMINIUM!!!

As I see it, I now am convinced that I really like the spire seeing it in different renders.

Spires look cool, IMO every building should have them; therefore, people would stop whining over them.

This should never have been changed I think. Until they dig down and start the piling this will remain as "prep"

Can you have a day with clear view of Burj Dubai from that point? or the air is always too dusty ?

Once the desert is full with buildings, I think there won't be any dust again. Unless there's a sandstorm coming from the desert :p

The blue circle is also SZ road, and BD area. So the area is not that big.

mhhh some experts talking here i hope you know that the distance from Etisalat tower 2 and the safa park (the lenght this skyline of Dubai will have) is aproximately 6,5km....



red arrow=aproximat location of Etisalat tower 2
yellow arrow=beginnig of safa Park currently planned end of the "main szr skyline"

thatīs nearly the distance from the beginning of the central parc at itīs northest point the whole way down to battery park....i think this is prety big....

and check the business bay section in the UAE section to check HOW MANY towers are currently under construction in this particular area....(last reports said it are about 75).....

sorry for getting off topic.....

That gap is really huge, like 18 km, I don't think it will get filled in near future, that would need the Dubai population to multiply by 10 or so to fill all the towers...
