Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture has been commissioned by Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) to design the world's tallest commercial tower, "Burj 2020." As Emirates 24/7 reports, AS+GG will work with WATG, a "top destination creation consultancy" who's been appointed to envision the Burj 2020 District's masterplan, to realize a "world-class destination" that will "set new levels of efficiency and urban sustainability."

"We are not going to have a spire to get into the book of records. It will be a mega high structure, floor wise," DMCC Executive Chairman Ahmed bin Sulayem told the website. Construction is expected to being this year. Design details have yet to be released.
