Am I the only one that sees it...?

Keep in mind, by the time the core reaches the height of the antennas on the Sears Tower, it'll be long past Taipei 101.

mr alloy. yes, the current height of 465m with cranes = 525m which is basically the height of antenna on sears (527m) so its now higher then any skyscraper.incredible.
graham-gee no wonder they wanted to increase the height of BD? look how stumpy the top section looks at 705m.thats 160fl= 600m. so i think they realised it could easily accomodate another 100m of steel building + 100m spire.
cheers

The Al Burj, also in Dubai. It will be somewhere between the 1200 and 1600 meters.

Al Burj and the proposed tower in South Korea, I think it is. I haven't heard a lot about the latter.

No sense, you need multi-angled samples to get a better render

Dubai to have at least six supertowers by '15


Dubai: The fast-changing Dubai skyline will sport at least six "supertowers" of more than 100 habitable floors, more than any other city in the world, as per information available.

The supertowers are Burj Dubai (where work continues after the completion of 126 floors), Burj Al Alam (slated to rise to 108 floors), the 101-storey Marina 101, Princess Tower (107 floors), the 120-storey Pentominium and Al Burj (which is expected to have between 180 and 200 floors).

Most of these buildings are in various stages of planning and construction although Burj Dubai - tipped to become the world's tallest tower - is powering ahead, adding a floor a week, and at least three others are in the early stages of construction. Work on Al Burj is not expected to start until Burj Dubai, whose height and floor-level are closely-guarded secrets, is completed.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


So Dubai will remain in the news for developing supertowers until at least 2015. No city other than Dubai and Chicago hosts more than one supertower.

Chicago has two - the 108-storey Sears Towers and the 100-storey John Hancock Center. A third, the 118-floor 7 South Dearborn tower, is under construction.

The development of six "supertowers" will raise Dubai's stature among the world's megacities, not only in terms of height, but also beauty, aesthetics and design quality, architects and designers say.

Apart from Burj Dubai or Al Burj, which will probably be remembered more for their towering heights, Burj Al Arab, Dancing Towers and Dubai Towers might be photographed by tourists for their striking design and aesthetic appeal.

"When we design, we design the present, which shapes the future. It is about shaping a contemporary world," Karim Rashid, Designer with Karim Rashid Inc of the US, said at an IDF panel yesterday.

In terms of development, Dubai has one of the highest number of towers and skyscrapers under construction including hundreds on both sides of Shaikh Zayed Road, while more than 1,850 will be constructed at the Dubai World Central Airport City in Jebel Ali.

By 2015, Dubai will have six "supertowers" that will rise more than 100 habitable floors making it the only city with so many towers with more than 100 floors once completed, according to available information.

These are Burj Dubai, which has already reached 126 floors and is still going strong; Burj Al Alam, slated to rise to 108 floors; the 101 storey Marina 101; Princess Tower with 107 floors; the 120-storey Pentominium and Al Burj which, as "one of the tallest towers" is expected to be between 180 and 200 floors.

Apart from these, a number of skyscrapers that will rise 80-100 floors are being built, including the 90-storey Marina 23 by ETA Star and the 90-storey Al Sharq Tower on Shaikh Zayed Road - all iconic projects.

When completed, the number of supertowers in the city will be more than those developed in the rest of the world.

I see an error in the previous post. The post states that 7 South Dearborn is 'under construction' That was already cancelled????? Hopefully the number will still be 3 when the Chicago Spire starts construction.
