Thanks for the 2c Comrade!
You'd do well in a country like North Korea where 'wealth' and 'ego' are shunned upon. Damn those wealthy bastards for creating so many jobs and adding such a phenomonal amount of value to society. So long as the poor are taken care of, right? It's no wonder you're supporting Obama so fervently...

Looks like Dubai is going to be a competition field in skyscrapers. What kind of proposals will we see in next few years?

Seems it will be pretty close to the new airport, close to the flightpath. Is that really smart?

Over ten miles from the airport + roughly perpendicular to the flight path = no problem.

If we're lucky, then now that they have officially launched it they won't be as secretive and will welcome publicity and take the gag order off of Imre.

... yawn, Dubai really knows how to take the fun out of a 2000+ foot tower. Listen, they arnt "extravagant" if there are 20 in the same area, and all of them have less then 20% occupancy.

So this tower has 4 individual towers making up one and looks like there is no central core dead in the center of the tower but probaly 4 cores for 4 individual towers that make up the whole structure.
