I just realized that they look like the Bionic Towers that was proposed in Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Couldn't build me an opinion about these new projects in Dubai...

Are they just for Cityscape or the are real... not only to show/have something for the exhibition

at least this 1000m tall tower is not anymore. if another proposal comes out one day or another long forgotten one comes back is another question.

500m x 2 = 1km.

For some reason, I like 2 supertalls rather then the one. Plus there will be a new supertall being built soon in DIFC, and possible another one in the new WTC redevelopment

two smaller towers will balance the whole skyline more that is true, but on the other hand, it was a possible world's tallest!

It wasn't really. It was merely an unconfirmed suggestion. I don't even think emaar ever mentioned about it officially.

EDIT
ok emaar actually did mention it:

Quote:
Emaar Chairman Mohamed Alabbar said recently that they are considering building another world-record breaking tower bigger than Burj Khalifa, currently the world’s tallest building.
So it was just big maybe and the location wasn't disclosed.

Yes, they had started construction but was put on-hold in 2008, but now we have confirmed news that it is restarting

One question, Let's say Dubai won the EXPO2020, can that be actually the trigger that will restart all mega projects and take Dubai back to its towering glory? Or this EXPO2020 won't have any effect on construction development? thanks
