Prices for the project will cost an estimated $3,500 per square foot, and units will be released for sale in increments over the ten years it will take to complete the project.

Finally some solid details about this project.

I don't know how you feel about it, but this tower looks just too massive. It appears that the point here was simply to have the biggest, not to create an other masterpiece like the Burj Dubai.
The Burj Dubai is a real beauty, which happens to be quite tall as side effect. Alltogeher this makes the Burj a stylish and impressive building. But Nakheels approach here is a monstrosity. Their only focus seems to be hight.

I really preferred the early design a lot more:



... on the other hand: I really hope they build it fast!

Isn't it a good idea to make a subforum for this tower? because there will be so much information, floor plans, 3D models form users, progress diagrams, drawings, renders, video's about this tower. It would be nice to have it all sorted in a subforum of maybe a blog or something. It isnt just a tall tower. Its the first structure higher than 1 KM ever build by mankind!

Or maybe a new section for ultratalls or something. For towers higher than 800 meters.

The design of this building is very striking and actually makes the building look like a building instead of a stick like Burj Dubai does. A building this tall has to have considerable mass too much higher level in order to look like the building instead of just a spire or antenna. Not to mention the fact that the mass help stabilize the structure and provide actual usable space instead of just height.

Hopefully be completed building will look as good as or better than the renderings we're now seeing!

I think the design is very good.

Should get some great views of the World and the Plams from up there.

Are there any pics of current construction or is it just a case of soil testing etc?

This has a hotel at the top with a public observation deck. So will have the World's highest observation deck with a great view of the palm, marina, world islands, sea and curvature of the Earth!

wow, that is amazing. I like its design better than Burj Dubai. Not only does it look 'Star Wars', it makes Dubai like the 'Two Towers' with Burj Dubai in one end of the city and Nakheel Tower in the other.

How far is it from the new Jebel Ali airport? From the overhead shots, it seems like it is quite close.

At $3,500 /sqft (coff more bullshit coff coff) just for the build where are the 14,000 buyers going to come from to take $5m dollar 1,000 sqft shoebox apartments?

Does nobody in Dubai (or SCC) have a calculator or a sense of reality?

The new community was launched at a VIP event attended by His Highness Shaikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai.
