yes each "section" of al burj is at least 25-30 floors.. which easily takes it to the 200 floor mark

u i guess he was talking about Al Burj, i would guess about twice the Sears Tower.

This model.. well i wouldn't say it is at least twice the size of DM but about twice.. excluding JBR.

The tower is basically a taller version of the Pinnacle a tower planned for the palm Jumeriah. It was designed by Pei partnership and went as far as wind tunnel and pressure testing. I have heard the same team is in place and currently working on this but the word is it wont start till the BD is complete and they can gauge its height.
Remember Nakheel and Emmar are big time rivals

All the other towers will also be very huge if you compare it with Al Burj Project will be great. But first let's finish Dubai Marina, JLT & Burj Dubai Complex.
Than it should run with Business Bay and SZR

It was in nespaper today that Michael Schumacher has taken part of the Antarktiga Island of The World, valued at around $7 million. He might be building a Go-Kart cirquit in there.

Now did he paid or not for that, is another story...

Changes?

that photo is sick. You can see the Palm, Deira. However if you look at the Nakheel website Dubai Waterfront looks totally different. It looks like they thought it was to costly to dig into the shore line, so they just modeled it after the existing shore. The old model looks a lot better.

Regarding the floor space, remember this tower is hollow with rings built into it between each section. The tower only looks wide, it is a truly spectacular design. There is a video somewhere with a flythrough showing this.

Al Burj wont be wtb imho, but i like the simplicity of the design, it also amezes me that it is exactly as wide on the top as in the bottom.

Agree, except for wtb, I think it will be.

I love the design and the idea of it being hollow. I hope they erect this behemoth as is, no changes.
