Los trabajos de la base

Estoy de acuerdo con ZZ-II. Los trabajos de la base y un vertido continuo hacen todos los rascacielos modernos posibles.

It looks like they wait for some more The (Dubai) Tower details to be revealed in order to proceed. I can secretly confess: the height can be increased significantly (with some major design changes).

I've done some design research to find out if the height extension is possible here (in order to exceed the possible height of The Tower), while retaining (or improving) its architectural styling. It proved that architecturally, the extended design can be at least the same stylish as the current design, but it will require some really smart structural solutions.

The only possible way is that a very thin sky tower has to be added to the top tower as a whole starting from the roof of the highest floor (~670 m high) and it has to be connected to the three wings for further support so that the height can be increased significantly keeping more than 50% of the height consisting of floors (this way even 1300 meters high is possible)

Architectural methods of design tell us there are at least 3 more ways to extend the height. With your proposal, it makes up 4 different possible designs. All of them seem to be feasible if there will be a really ingenious mind to redesign the structure.

Knowing the very close and very strong relations UAE and KSA has, none will be sad whoever took the title of the tallest, plus its kinda obvious KSA will have the tallest freestanding building while UAE will go for the tallest manmade structure/mast/tower. Plus no one knows the exact height of any of these structures so a redesign is as impossible as it gets, and I'm sure both plans were originally drawn to build both to their maximum possible height. Let's enjoy the ride guys and not worry about titles.

Better not to know which one will be taller, it's so interesting and enjoyable to watch

I don't believe a redesign of the tower at this stage to make it taller than the Tower in Dubai so it becomes the tallest tower in the world would ever happen........ OMG.

Some other city will just built higher again

Yeah not saying it's impossible but to overhaul a building already at 50 floors to go 100 or 200 meters higher than originally designed is pretty difficult. Sure BK saw plenty of plan changes and height increases but that was all while still in the building's planning stage and foundation work.

As was said, it sounds far more logical to let KSA have the highest building while UAE / Dubai can have the highest tower / mast.

If the goal was to surpass the initially projected 3600 feet design of The Tower, it would be done with a relatively little effort. A bed of roses. Piece o'cake. No sweat. Money for jam. Trouble-free. A child's play. Easy-peasy. A piece of old tackle. No trouble. Kids' stuff. A pound for old rope. Duck soup.

Although, if we recall the differences in wings foundations' load distribution, it becomes quite obvious that it wasn't designed with serious future-proof considerations (all 3 wings were designed to bear different loads).
