Have a look through the last 35 pages of this thread and find any evidence that this could be built. You won't be able to. Have a look at the current world financial situation and more specifically Dubais, and you will see there is no money to build it. Have a look at the demand for buildings in Dubai, (not the fantasy demand, the reality) and you will see their is no requirement to build it.

The bubble hasn't completely burst, and I hope Dubai manages to settle out and become a prosperous city, but at the moment any project this ridiculous is not going to happen.

Sorry

I hate to bump this thread but...I've been watching the activity on this tower from Smith's site as well as Ctbuh. And I've notice that Smith's firm is still doing work on the tower. And the height has been changed from 850m too 1000m on Ctbuh. If you go to AS+GG, you will see their project called Atrium City which has some nice details on the tower as well as it's surroundings. I just think that this project is not dead, but still in the works.
