ahh ok so it will be a restaurant thanks. Will have an amazing view but won't be the highest restaurant as Nakheel Towers looks like it has an observatory at the top.

They say 650m and 140 stories. Seems much more likely so that's what I'm changing the title to.

To do the moving airscrew, to connect the power-generating turbine and the building alone, just will produce the electricity.

great tower Was an approximate starting date of the structure given?

The palm islands are designed to be looked at from above so I guess they need to build tall.

Since when a newspaper article is a reliable source? The Architects say 125 floors and the semi-official press release mentiones the same, plus a 700 meters height.

Exactly, isn't official site of the project the best source?

OK...the website says 600+....that's not 700. Now that I have stopped laughing so hard about the 'turbine' I can ask....so does the restaurant turn like the center of the propeller?

C'mon guys....read a bit into the thread and really look at the renders before you post.

That said this is a very cool tower and I hope to see it built. That would be a hell of a view from a restaurant that high up in Dubai....a stunning view for sure.

Dubai will end up with tons of different tower designs once these are all done. I've seen quite a few handfuls of different design types so far from Dubai.

They should call the restaurant "THE TURBINE". HEHEHE!
You know, the 2 extensions from the restaurant could be use as escalators.
You take the escalator up and there will be worlds tallest INTERNAL slide.
But seriously, the restaurant should have a great view of Nakheel Harbour Tower and the all the supertalls along Dubai Marina.

Something I'm disappointed with is the top looks like it generates power for the building when it, well, doesn't.
