I just this past weekend went to the ONE WORLD OBSERVATORY which is at a height of about 375 meters. You could feel the building swaying in the wind, it was very suddle but at first made me and my dad a some what dizzy. I cant believe that this tower is going up much even higher.

One World? You mean 1WTC? That is a steel frame construction with only the core consisting of concrete as far as I remember. Steel structures sway a lot more than buildings which are entirely made out of reinforced concrete.

It too depends on the design of the tower. The Burj for example was designed to minimize the impact of wind forces. Three-winged buildings in general are good for that, circular ones too. We won't be able to tell until the design is revealed.

My uncle lives in the Sky tower in Abu dhabi/Reem island on the level 60 of it ... sometimes when I visit and there is wind I feel it moving and that's not even a supertall. a year ago there was very strong wind what caused the tower to sway alot and all residents went down to lobby cz it was very freaky and scary.

Now we can see the first floors of this tower it is easier to predict its impact on the skyline once it is done using Photoshop ... here where it will rise and its effect on the tallest block.



And the old render:

Man they gotta finish the Pentominium someday...
the tallest block just won't be complete without it.

Anywho, this building is moving along quite well.

^ Gabriel900 your work for skyscrapercity is amazing.
Does anybody know how SSC started and who the founder is?
+ Just an interesting tidbit, Dubai is already the 4th most visited city in the world. Most visitors than New York, Singapore, Hong Kong and Los Angeles. the only cities with more travelers are London, Bangkok and Paris. Also Dubai's average hotel room goes for 250 USD (900 AED) and the avg. hotel occupancy rates are around .86 compared to New York's .85.
+ Marina 106 is going to be extremely skinny, more so than 432 Park Avenue.
