Hopefully we will see their designs soon, then we also know what height we can expect roughly.

I see the death star building is back once again. It was proposed for Dubai around 2008. Is it serious or just render filler material?

It's a highway. Look at the first page of this thread, it's already U/C!

Wrong, the tallest buildings are only around 500m and most of them are only 100-200m. Actually slightly disappointing in height for me.

It is just concept heights projected though, might as well have a megatall main tower in the end, we will see. Just hope we won't get a cut at 400m because of airport and stuff.

hoping for a sea of supertalls, looks like most areas will not be over 350m, but these are just the L plots and the big towers are all in the backgrounds very promising.

one document also states "won't surpass 450m", but i am uncertain what exactly they mean. maybe someone could clarify?

Let's hope those uncredited images are meaningless.
