Makes the old blocky Sears Tower look appealing again. I like the emphasis on vertical lines, broken up subtly with Islamic style trim.

This tower is more then 500 meters tall.

The awarding of the main construction package is expected next month. Some of the biders are Korea's Samsung Enginering (Burj Dubai, Taipei101, Petronas Towers), Belgium's Six Construct (Buej Dubai, The Address Lake Hotel) and Australia's Multiplex (Wembley Stadium, The Index, Emirates Park Hotel Towers).

Consultant is UK's Hyder (Burj Dubai, Pentominium)

you can't compare them.
just this one has to be taller than 500m because it has a huge top section with less floors and dome (maybe a litte spire, it looks like it)...
Sears Tower (i prefer this name) has small regular floors till the roof.

It still doesn't have to be 500m just because it has 100 floors. The Ryugyong Hotel in North Korea has 105 floors and is 1080 something feet.

And where exactly in the city is this building?

BESIX is a UAE company, a J/V between the local BELHASA Contracting Company and Belgium's SIX Construct.

This tower is residential and it has taller floors ... pluc floors in middle east are usually taller then elswhere because they also have to house the central A/C pipes ... and then is the thing on top.

My source (nothing to do with Onn's ones) also quoted a 500 meters number.

I love when newer buildings incorporate older styles, so the base is definitely the coolest part for me.
