If you look on the title, it will be 850 meters high !!!!

But if you compare the 600 meter towers, --> it's defenetly taller than that !!!

yeah looking at that pic makes me re-think. and its defianlty higher then 850m, maybe just maybe this might be a competition to the Nakheel Tower. just have this feeling this might be the next WTB. fingers crossed
