Not sure is I like it or not, but it would make a great centerpiece for Tom Cruise's next "Mission Impossible" movie!

Can you just imagine now, how Tom Cruise will slide down the cables??

Or better yet, Dwayne Johnson's (The Rock) "Skyscraper 2 " movie?

How he will have to get his family to slide down the cable too?

or even better yet.......

Why is the height listed as 3k feet and not 4.3k on this thing?

Calatrava is notorious for going enormously overbudget, delays, last-minute design changes, and his overall incompetence as an architect. His final product is usually subpar and it's not uncommon for his buildings to start falling apart due to their absurd designs; he's been sued by multiple clients.

Either money really is no object for these Emirate developers or bankrupting them will truly be his greatest accomplishment.

Given their ambition, I'll say it may still be a pipe dream. A tower over 1 kilometer tall?! I'll believe it when I see it.

They’re really building this in the middle of nowhere.

It's a trophy to the UAE and their oil wealth. They are very successful in marketing themselves to the world. Having the world's tallest structure is a part of this.


I still retain the opinion that this thing is ugly as hell.

If you look at the renderings they plan to build an entire district around this tower. So yes, it's currently in the middle of nowhere, it soon won't be.

I'm not going to say that it's growing on me because it's not but it is what it is. I don't consider it the tallest building in the world so much as the tallest something else. Never liked towers that were simply towers to look at...they just don't seem to fit into a good looking skyline. Just my opinion.

On the other hand, it may turn out to be a beauty. After all, the Eiffel tower was considered a blemish on the Paris skyline for years after it was built. This, while still ugly as sin IMO, is starting from a better position.

What I really want to know, however, is how this thing is supposed to generate revenue for its owners. How much could they possibly get from so few potential tenants (like, one if there's a hotel) and an observation deck? I guess it's just meant to act as some sort of "overall" part of the Dubai package and help attract business.

It wouldn't surprise me if this ends up as an unfinished Caltrava pit in the ground like his failed Chicago Spire.

i can see maybe a hotel, restaurant, skybar and observation area, like a seattle space needle, but i can't picture office workers or residents in this. and even tho it isnt, cable stayed just seems sketchy for ongoing habitation. not that it doesn't look good, i think it does look pretty cool, but what a waste of time and $$$.

It's certainly a building, but just like the CN Tower in Toronto, it's not a skyscraper (defined as a tall high-rise) and so I don't understand why this thread is even on the Supertall Construction forum. Supertall refers to a skyscraper that's above 300 m, so the Supertall Construction forum shouldn't include non-skyscrapers such as towers. The Diagrams page does get it right, classifying the Dubai Creek Tower as a tower instead of high-rise.

ADMINS: Please consider moving this thread to a different forum.

This seems way over-complicated for the end result.

I second this. There is a lot that can go wrong with those systems they are using for all of those phases.
