Meydan Group to Launch 111-Story Tower

Dubai's Meydan Group is gearing up to launch its 111-story Meydan Tower in downtown Dubai, Emirates 24/7 reports. The company says construction on what would be the city's second tallest building will begin along Shikeh Zayed Road within the next six weeks.

Shikeh Zayed Road is also the location of the Burj Khalifa and Princess Tower.

The company reports that the tower, designed by Parisian firm Architecture Studio, will have office and retail spaces, serviced residences, spa and gym amenities and a boutique hotel.

////////////////////////

not sure if this is enough information or credible information for this building to deserve a thread, but for that height and since we already got pictures i don't think it should be ignored. I stay sceptical towards this, but wanted to share what i found, CTBUH themselves has not yet filled this building to their database although they themselves posted these news, so it is all just time to wait and see. Only a few days ago I also have read news that Emaar is planning to trump Kingdom Tower again in Dubai aswell, so are we in for a come-back of projects beyong imagination or is this a publicity stunt as big as a megatall?

Hmph, they say the second tallest building. 101 Marina is planned to be 432 meters so this has to be taller than that if it wants to be second tallest

yes Kanto, i thought making the title 431m+, but i thought 400m+ would be good for now, since there isn't really much information that we have yet

Are they different towers, or it's a redesign?

I can't tell, the renders only show the top half. Not very helpful.

Ok. Those renders don't look like the building has 111 floors.

And that is because that tower is a tower which was designed to be built in Meydan City, which is why the media confused it with the taller tower that has been posted that will be built along Sheikh Zayed Road.
