Oh no BECHTEL will build this. Expect 20 years and tens of billions of dollars spent just to see a crappy end-product.

Bechtel is responsible of management, It will have the ability to choose the contractor of each canal, building or skyscraper but it does not have the contracting staff there... Just the management and planning.

wow! what an ugly ass tower,very uninspiring with a golden cheesy facade.this doesnt look like 1600m look at those buildings at the base they look hardly 20 stories.and the masterplan looks like a rip off of the burj downtown..........a lake again,yet very tacky planning.they made us wait so long and came with crap like this.

If they can front the cash and have the determination....I say let em' build it. Look back 10 years and tell someone there would be a Burj Dubai at over 800m and they would laugh in your face.

Never say never.

The would have a long way to go to begin such a project but hey you never know.

this would be an aesthetic build. Completely uneconomical, but it would be rather impressive.

I think the masterplan looks pretty good. Seems like something like dubai marina with the extra tower. Is that tower design even the final one?
