they could just say its going to be 1609m, but reality the ground soil over there cant support a structure that size.

No,because by the time this is built they'll be dozens of 1000 meters tall buildings proposed or U/C.For this to really grab the title of worlds tallest building it need to be at least 1600 meters tall.

Still looks plain boring to me. I hope the Nakheel Tower will be higher.

Because they want to show there's more of the tower between the two partitions, it's just too long for the page height constraint to show all of it.

Again only two renders with a plain looking tower. No new information, nothing except those images. It looks like someone does this renders in a day, to just give Nakheel an "answer"! I repeat myself, i donīt think this is a real project. I might be wrong, but my feelings say, this is just something for press attention......
