It's beautiful! Despite everything that has been said concerning the working conditions of the builders, the ***** complex of the developer, the lack of demand for such a large building, it still is a marvel of our time.

I'm afraid that due to the current economic situation we'll have to wait a long time for another tower this tall and exceptional.

Emaar isn't going to announce final height until 9/9/9. But would be cool if they jack up that day to 888meters lol. Everyone hear thinks they know it´s topped out at 818m and than it´s actually not. I know it´s impossible but would be such a surprise if they did it.
