its a tourist attraction. its a focal point for the town. UAE will eventually run out of oil and there main income will have to be tourism. so thats why they are building tallest this largest that now so for the future. this is what ive been told by a real estate agent/planner from Dubai. makes sense

Will this project be accepted as a tallest building when it has cables in its design. Masts and aerials often have surpassed building heights over the years but have not been included in tallest records for buildings ?...Ps I do see they refer to it as Worlds tallest structure which covers everything.

^^ The original plans also included a hotel and observation deck levels (the part of the model that are lit up towards the top).

So, although a lot of the tower IS stick, there are many inhabitable floors, still.

Was in Dubai last week and they got posters for this thing all over the place.

It's a nice tower.
