I don't know I'm afraid. The height has bounced around so much but they appear to have finally settled on a figure and I understand that the building is now U/C.

I'm surprised they haven't done a PR release or revealed the scheme publicly but then I'm sure they have their reasons. Hopefully the tower will be revealed in all its glory before too long.

its a commercial private sector development with land acquired.

I expect it to be complete within 5 years unless DB reality goes tits up.

and based on the vibes i got on the stock market I would not totally rule that out.

Brokers are recommending to dump this stock at the moment. the recent budget also does not help their cause.

Finally the design is out on the web. Presenting the Norman Foster designed DB tower -


It's from an investor presentation on DBR's website

Larven - our tower teaser has confirmed that this IS the Foster tower and it'll consists of about 100 floors while rising upto a height of 550 meters. The original tower was supposed to be around 700 meters tall.

I saw it in the international section. Really cool design and I have to admit I still don't believe this really going to be build until I see the first piling.

3 years is indeed way to quick for a building this size. Only the foundation will take 1.5 years at least...

Three years is way to quick. They said 3 years for the 80fl 300m Orchid Heights. This is almost twice that size.

The site looks really small for that tower -

If he wasn't there then I would have had a field day inside. I pleaded with the site engineer to take just one pic but he didn't budge. So I just went to the 3rd floor of the adjacent building and took a few pics and a video.

Here are 2 of the pics. I'll upload more later along with the video which shows an excavating truck doing its thing at the right most corner of the site.

i am not sure thats the site. db has two sites next to each other there. one smallish one and the other one is much bigger (was waqf land iirc). the waqf land site was barricaded pretty recently and has blue and white sidings, not white and green
