Becouse we know that Zaha Hadid has won the design competition for the three Business Bay CENTREPIECE towers, and the design had to be unveiled this week in New York.

I'll have to upload some of those dubailand model photos since they're definitely impressive. Meanwhile:


Dancing towers (better render)




Universal Tower, 18F

Silicon Arch, 9F

Redesign for Al Rafi Complex, the previous one was axed because it was too tall for the area (airport restrictions).








Al Habtoor Office Tower, 40F. An office tower in the marina?

The old design of Al Rafi Complex looks like Dolphin Towers from Gold Coast..

Some news:





The Central Business District, located on both sides of the Dubai Creek, is set for a mammoth transformation according to recent plans revealed by the Dubai Municipality.

In a bid to make the area more pleasing to the eye, building facades will be completely renovated and wide-open plazas created.

Some buildings in the area will be demolished as part of the beautification drive, but a municipality official could not say which ones will go, until the approval to do so is received from the highest level.

The municipality source also said the plans will not take away the traditional feel of the area and added the changes will fit in with the heritage of the district.

The area destined for a makeover represents the oldest part of Dubai and is located between Al Baniyas Road and Musalla Road in Deira and Khalid bin Walid Road and Musalla Road in Bur Dubai.

As traffic is so congested on roads in both Bur Dubai and Deira, a decision has also been made to pedestrianise much of the district.

In an attempt to encourage pedestrians, planners also want to convert 2,100m of roads, including parts of Naif Road and Al Fahidi Street in Bur Dubai, into pedestrian-only streets with canopy coverings to keep people shaded.

Hamid Hattal, head of the comprehensive planning and studies unit at the municipality’s Planning and Surveying Department, said in addition to renovating some buildings in “a way that will reflect the character of the historic area”, officials are also preparing new rules to unify the signage used by shop owners.

Other planned changes will include creating several open areas, but Hattal said at this stage it was not possible to reveal where they will be.

One problem facing planners is the fact that most of the land in the area is privately owned and it is not yet known how the owners will react to the proposals.

Hattal is aware that not everybody will be happy with the new plans, but he said it is being done for the overall good of the area.

He said: “Our main goal is to keep the character of the area. This is where Dubai started.”

New pictures of the marina by malster. They really show how the place is shaping up, will look great as more buildings get completed and landscaping is done.

A bit of a Chinese communist city development. Or a hot version of Novosybirsk.
