Think about that...

509m + 319m = Burj Khalifa

The next tallest tower has to be 1000m+ at the very least imo. Otherwise, what's the point?!

And it will take at least 6 years to build, imo

@Samoa22200: Until all those projects you said (examble: Miami) which are tallest than Burj Khalifa, will be completed that will happen in the next 6 - 10 years. So, until then the highest building in the world is Burj Khalifa.

@234sale: in the photo you posted above, except of build some buildings and towers which today there its desert, is a plan to full with trees, grass etc?

You're getting lost on the scale of things. As already posted, the greenery around the tower has been done with long time back.

Wow, that willl be one amazing view if it comes to be. Hopefully they can resist the temptation to fill in the open spaces between with suburbia (or anything). Will give it such a unique look.

Oh man!!! That's one of the most arbitrary pieces of urban design I've ever seen! I fell off my chair when I seen that! Is this a current or pre-crash proposal? I really thought those days of pretty shapes was behind us...
