Malec....nice render as usual, but I have an unrelated question....any idea why now on Imageshack, there's a 'crush love' site blaring on the top banner? Sure is annoying!

Edit title to around 600 meters

http://www.arabianbusiness.com/52688...st-performance

If this one will be the second tallest tower in Dubai, it has to be higher than 618 meters !!

Am just saying my opinion now but I recon the release of the design will be delayed quite a bit.
They were originally going to demolish the hard rock cafe to build this but now the cafe stays. The decision to keep it was only made a few months ago. Surely they have to redesign if this is the case.

Dubai seriously needs it's own supertall thread. It should be right under the rest of the planets supertall thread. It really is amazing.
