#ON HOLD: UNKNOWN EMAAR PROJECT (in front of TT and MH)

I think it's time we opened a separate thread for this one instead of information and pictures scattered all over TT and MH threads.. we will rename when Emaar releases more info..

a mock diag. from the old emaar master plan for dubai marina... shot taken before emaar sales center and parking lot were flattened




another old rejected proposal




and the latest plan showing one massive empty plot

so i put my suggestion in first:

1 big phase 1 like basement, with 2 40F towers and one 30F hotel in the middle, extended between MH and TT with a footbridge over the street, reaching the T shaped mall in between the supertalls, which will be three storey.

Great idea making a thread for this. Now the torch thread won't be filled up with this anymore

Some of the most genius ideas appear when you least expect them.

Sounds about right, but we do not yet know if this is a hotel complex or apartments yet.

From my visit to Marina Heights last week.

The management company at Marina Heights told me that the plot was going to be an extension of Phase 1 at the waters edge and then two towers. Dont know how accurate this info this.

Any idea what is happening here? Could this be the foundation for one of the towers? Seems rather thin.

Great pics, very helpful.

Its a pool of liquid expelled by the excavation machine (they use liquid from the yellow tanks to losen the sand so they can dig, then it is separated again).

I think the first excavation will take place in this area.

Does this mark the final area and location of foundation for the tower here then ?

The liquid is a slurry of usually Bentonite or montmorilonite. It is poured into the hole as the excavation goes deeper. This dense liquid stops the excavation from collapsing in. Once the depth has been reached the steel cages are lowered in and the concrete is poured using Tremmie pipes (the long tubes with the hopper on the top to guide the concrete). This places the concrete at the bottom of the excavation through the slurry and as the concrete is denser than the slurry, it displaces the slurry. The displaced slurry is then pumped to a holding area ready for the next section.
Easy!!

True Blue. Any chance you could speak to the guys digging the holes and with your construction knowledge and discreet q'ing you might find out where towers will be on site?
