In Switzerland, this would already be the second tallest building in the country! Can't even imagine how tall this will be when completed.

(In advance, I'm not hating. I love this tower) I just find it pretty funny that they've been working on this tower for 3 years and it's not even as tall as the tallest building in Wisconsin, (US). But its okay. This tower is amazing!

I doubt they'll do that, it will make the tower way too ugly.

Dubai observatory tower is counterproductive. Dubai doesn't need supertall towers, it needs density. If you look at pics of dubai you'll see towers but there would space and white land between them that it looks unfinished. The city should focus on building mid-sized tall towers instead of do supertalls that will only show a view of more empty land down on the ground. Just look at Hong Kong and you'll know what I am talking about. Of couse there is an exception in Dubai where you don't see this half-done work and that's in the marina, which look beatiful because tower density there is so high.

I couldn't agree more, for example you are in at the top in the BK and you only see empty spaces everywhere that is horrible, they should stop building new neighbourhoods and try to fill the places they've already built...

You can't pretend to build a 200+ surrounded by sand and pretend it to look good
