This building will be a great addition with a massive impact on dubais' skyline. And a well placed counterweight to the burj Khalifa.

The design on the construction billboard looks a little different than the render we have. Design change, perhaps?

Can you show me on Google Earth, where it will be. In Dubai Marina, or near Burj Kalifa?

You're right, totally! The twins that you can see behind the tower are 200m and 260m tall. Entisar tower is therefore just twice as tall as the twin with the spire and not more than three times taller as you can see in the render.

He wasn't talking about that render, rather the skyline itself.

They should make an hight limit of 250m on the SZR and everything above that deserves a special location like the Almas Tower

no not 250+ but the jump in scale make it disproportionate relative to the rest of SZR which has some 300m + towers and needs height and diversity but this is too big a jump and would be better suited around down town some where

Rose, Al Attar, Al Yaqoub are all on SZR already, that would be the most pointless height limit proposed.

I would agree that this tower would make a nicer impact close to Al Attar instead of the northern side of the road and further from Burj Dubai, but I think that a tower that finally stands out from the others is quite a nice direction to take.

This tower may look out of place if you only look at SZR but once you step back and take a look at the bigger picture... it will make an excellent counterweight to the Burj Let's just hope they will finish the ground works soon, and more importantly appoint a main contractor. I really want to see this tower rising...
