Didn't know about this. So most of the view of SZR from the Dubai Frame will be blocked?

There used to be a handful of highrise projects in Al Mankhool, threads haven't been updated in ages. Anyway, this district would create a nice connection to them.

Pass by it today .. piling on phase 1 is already underway I saw site board which includes 4 towers with 2 highest are 32 F located on the northern part of this district.

This is what on site board:

PS: this area is all labeled with no height restriction I wonder what the other phases will look like ... Because this is not like the earlier masterplan we had.
