If this is 850m that means we can have a view from the top of BD's spire.

That Photoshop-stretch version is getting close to the 850m. The other one doesn't look like 850m at all.

it doesnt look like 850m because it has very wide base also because its not one tower .. its three so it looks like one massive wide tower .
but if you separate the three towers you will see how tall this thing will be

The render might also have been a smaller (~600m) design, don't you think?

We'll have to wait.

No i mean 50 towers over 800 Meters.Sheih Muhammed said Dubai donīt know limits.They will built everythink what humans cannot imagine.They are also planning to built a 2500 Meters tower in future.There wil be no end in Dubai.

Dubai will be like a Star Wars City but much more beautiful .They are building the PARADISE.The perfect modern city which offers the highest quality of life.Unbelieveable what they made of a desert.

If they can build a 2500meter tower, than they can easily build a giant air conditioned bubble over the entire city! Now THAT would be paradise!

Their not building or designing anything, Westerners particularly Americans are funding, constructing and teaching Dubai about the technology and innovations that where not conceived in this desert outpost.

The skyline will be amazing. but it's not a global city, and won't be for a long time if ever. The pointless building of skyscrapers will fade away in the Arabian Desert like the surreal grandeur that fails to elude their Emirs mind.

You are right, I remember seeing this render in EARLY may, and posted it on my blog.

I don't know if it have been redesigned for 850, only rescaled or if back in may they already had plans for it to be this tall, but only announced the whole package as 600+ meters.

I just want to say I love the vision of the architect - building supertalls that actually produce more power than they consume is awesome!

I doubt that will really be the case at the end, but at least one should thank them for trying.
