I am only going to be impressed if and when it's going to be a serious proposal. Until then, they can envision all they want.

Errr, it would cost around AED 10-15 Billion to build this. First of all, i'm not sure if this level of engineering is even feasible and second and most importantly, this just cannot be PROFITABLE!

Logic aside, build it please!!!

If they can build a 700 - 800 meters version of this it will be great.

Who envisioned this anyway?

The base is ugly but i like how it twists. A project like this can solve any kind of population problems in every city.

I bought an apartment in this tower on floor 299 but unfortunately there are rumours that my view will be blocked by the 500 storey Marina Sky Towers II...!!!

My boss got the info sent to him by a friend and so he emailed it to me. He told me to stick it on that trainspotters website I use, and I told him it is not trainspotters, its skyscraperspotters, OOPS, I mean city!
