The super-tall structure is expected to be 928m-high and scheduled to be completed by 2020, according to constructionweekonline.com.

This super structure will be 100m taller than Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, another Emaar Properties tower that also holds the record for the world's tallest manmade structure.

The tall building’s striking design includes a net of steel cable stays that attach to a central reinforced concrete column.

There is an oval shaped bud at the top of the tower and it will hold several observation decks, including The Pinnacle Room, which can offer a 360° view of the city and beyond, as claimed by BMT.

BMT also says that the bud will also serve as a beacon of light during night times.
