I don't like one thing about this tower, It's surrounded by desert, like Burj Khalifa. It's a big disadvantage for me. But the tower itself is amazing. My new favourite, beats my last fav., the Sears Tower.

How tall will it be this time next year you guess?

Ok that's fun. Frankly I have no idea but lets see. Suppose they can start construction of the tower after march 2014. Also suppose the early floors will be constructed at much lower pace say 2.5 weeks per floor. So that gives as 7 floors in four months. If they start construction of the tower after February that's around 8 or 9 floors. So adding margins to this I'd say from 6 to 10 floors will be completed next year this time.

Wonder how wrong or right I will be
