DUBAI | Al Attar Tower | 342m | 1120ft | 76 fl | T/O

The name is likely to change once the tower is done

But since this one is supertall and also well underway, i decided it deserves its own thread as well.

Also, they put the new render in place which looks very good.

So there we go:


OLD DESIGN:



OLD SIGNBOARD:




NEW RENDER:



NEW SIGNBOARD:




June 2004:



Dec 2004



July 2005




Sept 2005



Feb 2006




April 2006

RISING

I knew about the old design and I really didn't like it, but this new design is awesome! Will make a great addition to Dubai.

I think the new design is just as bad as the old design. The best tall towers going up in Dubai will be some of the most amazing and beautiful towers in the world, but there are also a couple of shockers like this one that look like they been drawn up by the company financial manager on the back of a McDonalds placemat.

Towers this tall, wherever they were built, used to have high standards of design 99% of the time because they were so out of the ordinary and expensive. In Dubai and China recently it's like they have become so common that in a few cases the standard of design is no better than for an ordinary 20 storey apartment tower.

The Tower looks good, but the name is way to long.

everything over 300 UC gets its own thread, we decided so. i mean, there are 150m towers in the world forums and supertalls have to stay away.. noooo.

the boom thread is great for everything and to be up to date.

I don't it should be done this way. Dubai might have loads of 300m towers in the pipeline but I think the world forums are for the most important projects in each city so a 300m tower for most cities is really important while for Dubai in a lot of cases it's just another tower. The way it should be is that special towers (whether tall or not) deserve their own threads. Towers like the burj al alam, or the index are good examples. When the design comes out the opera house would be a good example

i mereley think a supertall should be in the world forums, no matter in which city is located.

and most of the uae forumers agreed, and most people were happy to see the Dubai supertalls since they did not notice them before.

Dubai Boom Rundown is a development thread. All the threads open in this section, are CONSTRUCTION UPDATES threads.

My only concearn was about opening threads for towers that we have dificulties taking picture updates.

exactly. but most of the difficult ones (BD LH, Almas) are rising now anyway!


The boom thread does not get much construction updates anyway..

I think supertall under construction -> thread in world forums.

They have a self climbing slipform for the core, so we can expect a 1 floor/week progress.

... and the project board



They have left blanc the number of floors of the tower, maybe the redesign included a floor number increase as well. New info is that the parking at the back will have 12 levels.
