Aaaannnnd Emaar did launch today a new triplets of towers in downtown Dubai! What is very remarkable in all renders is THIS tower in the background (scroll right if the picture is very wide for your screen) and what I talked about days ago about it having a huge increase in height, especially in the "bulb" area is now very noticeable in the following new renders! Check how stretched out vertically it is compared to the previous renders May I dare say it is almost 50% usable floors of it now ... :P

I always see the greenery in the renders, i hope there will be some green space between. I love every single area in dubai with landscaping, they know how to do it but i wish they make more of it.

Well surprrrize! As Gabriel said. It looks that they have changed the height and the design!

Now is the wires place suitable for the new hight . Let's remember in real it might look better

Yes It would be great ! It seems that there is a full masterplan of the district and some never seen renders inside.

But oh well, this is just a model - a lot can change in the meantime!

Something came to me after seeing some of these new renders and suggestions of height. Similar to how I'm sure Emaar looked at the previous WTB for basic information and guidelines perhaps when building the Burj, do you think Emaar is again looking at what has been done in the tower space to ensure The Tower will beat all others? In short, it'd be neat if they did push 1,100+ meters, since that'd exactly double the CN Tower's height of 553 meters, more or less. It seems like a nice margin - double the height of the previous tallest strictly "Tower" category. But then you also have Ghuangzhou's Tower, Tokyo's Sky Tree, etc. that are also taller by this point too. I wonder if Emaar would go 1,200+ then to double the height of any existing tower?

Certainly not.

And the the metro should obviously have some super cool ending point at the Tower. Where a worldwide competition should find the best proposal.

If u look at the last picture posted you can see a golden structure of the bottom right of the model, looks like a metro station ?

You can't be more right! An outstanding metro terminal at The Tower DHC by a famous architect would be awesome! Maybe Calatrava is already the perfect guy for this job
He designed some great train stations in the past and his style would harmonise perfectly with The Tower at DCH:

Since Calatrava is already well-known for his transit stations, it'd be neat if they booked him to create not only a tower but a unique metro station here, too. Unlikely perhaps, but possible.

Also any gauging I'm attempting from that model is just ending far below 3,000 feet compared to the other structures. We can't see the full Tower Model, not to mention the scale of everything of course may vary. I'm guessing at the scale that one would need to make the other buildings at in a detailed ground plan model that it would result in The Tower itself being too large for the room. But then again the Burj had a ridiculously huge sales model too so who knows?

I think the lower part is now shorter which only makes the bulb look stretched. Looks to me more like around 500m in the new renders. But it's hard to tell because all the surrounding buildings are now flat.
