Surely if you buy an apartment in a supertall you would like to have a view as part of the experience ? Imagine living on the 65th floor and just see more windows and a balcony out of your windows ????Guess views in Dubai wouldn't be very interesting anyway....but still................I know New York has many apartments that don't have views but new supertalls are a different story.....lots more stories.

So we know who played an April Fool's joke on us... Btw. the original name was World's NEXT tallest residential tower - the race is on!. But "residential building" is okay, too.

Isn't Ocean Heights going to briefly steal the title of tallest completed residential tower to roof for a short while before the Torch completes? What madman would have voted on that to happen two or three years ago? ^ ^!

^yeah but doesnt really count. emporis and CTBUH only care about official height which currently is Q1 at 322.5m.
A condo in moscow has recently completed at 304m to roof.
