Usually, world class skyscraper project would be
1) have an official website (burjdubaiskyscraper.com)
2) Project pre launching, coverage by global media such as cnn, bbc
3) Fixed rendering announcement by developer, not architec consultant
4) Project bidding : contractor (emaar, hyundai or any indian company),
5) Second layer building suround, (unless taipei 101,all world iconic project had newbuilding around)
6) Supported by government (only the stupid private company build the super tower)
7) And the last but not least,ground zero picture witness, would make sure globally that the. project is real, not sureal

This is India. Skyscraper things happen differently here for complicated political reasons. See previous pages for more information.

Wow...that will become the focal point of a big chunk of the city. By the way, is this located behind that row of gymkhanas on Marine Drive? The place marked "burial ground" on Google Maps?

I will believe it 10 years after it is finished. In all seriousness I will believe it when it is 40 floors, buildings have stalled for less.
