There is no way they will be able to build it in 6 or 8 years even. And since it hasn't started, nor does anyone know, when it will, it's safe to assume it won't be tomorrow. So let's say two years wait, ten years of construction - it'd be great to see this one rise before 2025. My guess? It won't be ready by then.

You wanted a picture of an undeveloped section of desert, I provided that, I don't see what the problem is.

Ah don't pretend you come to this thread for anything other than fun with trolls, if that is the case, then I'd give it a few months before coming back.

While I don't think that it'd be possible to complete this by 2016 as they are proposing, I respectfully disagree. I'd say 2018 or 2019 is a good guess. If they're really truly serious about this, I could see 2017. If there's lots of delays and things that go wrong, 2020. But 2025 just doesn't seem like a good guess.

My point was referring to the reported height of one mile as shown in that newspaper scan. It took seven years to fully complete Burj Dubai, which is: a) half the height, b) quarter the size. There is no way you can build three times as fast as Emaar did there.

Oh. I thought you were referring to the 1007m height. Yeah 1600m is gonna take a lot longer. But this is not too much taller than BK, and the top third of it is spire, so that won't be too hard to put up with.

With all the political turmoil going on in the middle east this building might not get built at all.

Actually I'd say these are the best times for Saudi Arabia in the last century or two because of the war in Libya. Saudi Arabia and Libya are the two biggest oil exporters in the world. With the production in Libya being nil right now Saudi Arabia can now ask nearly whatever price it wants for it's oil

Two years ago the same thing could have been said about Libya never say never.

Wait, this building has an exact height?? I thought the height was unknown (as in >= 1000 meters).

I think it's safe to say that the Burj Khalifa will keep its world's tallest crown for more than 6 years.

And please, stop calling Burj Khalifa the Burj Dubai.
