If this tower doesn't has the pyramid shape like other megatalls of the same height, it will just has too much space to fill.

I know, but I think it will be a very slim tower.

Dubai is so tottaly back in business if this starts. and it will also prove that the boom years wasent a one time incident and that Dubai is still ,and will Remain king of skyscrapers and massive Mega projects for a long time.

Just cant w8 for the expo Vote result that will be one of the definite anchorment`s for this project. if Dubai wins which they probably will.

and its really nice that they redevelop/revive an already well planned development that will go hand in hand with the final work on Dubai creek extension and Business bay.

if it all goes through Dubai will become something of a Coruscant Venezia mixup

just cant w8 for more info. im so excited

Dubai

I think the Expo will only accelerate things. All of this would have probably happened anyway, which I guess is even more exciting if you think about it like that

I meant it doesn't have to be pyramidal It can go straight up like nt. But design of this height must be somehow repetitive and simple. Each floor in flame design is pretty much custom shaped - doing so in kilometer tall tower would probably multiply the cost of the tower. Nakheel Tower was different than burj but still every floor was similar to previous, so it wouldn't require major reconfiguration of form-works for most part of it. Plus there is much less stress to the structure when levels are shaped and placed evenly.

Regardless of the technical possibilities I think they won't do it a flame because a kilometer flame rising above 200m "mini" flames would look just weird. They'd have to build several 600m flames around it to make it right. I think they will either locate the km tower somewhere out of the dubai towers location, or they will scrap dubai towers and build 1km tower instead.

There was some awesome towers proposed for the JG, best of all towers proposed for dubai imo. As far as I know the project is completely dead. We got the tallest block instead

But dubai seams to be getting back on track. Would be second best news after new 1km tawer if jg was resumed

But the Jumeirah Gardens Masterplan Project is not dead.

Depends on the definition of dead. I mean it's dead now and it doesn't seam like they will resume it anytime soon.

Wiki (in this case at least) is not a good source of information anyway as it claims for instance that first phase of the project should be completed in 2013

More boring pipe dreams from the desert...


All this money could be used for way more valuable projects.
Come on Dubai, we expect something interesting from you. Like Masdar City.

i agree that a pyramidical tower is not the only way to go, but i think it is the most likely way for three reasons:
1. it is the cheapest
2. it has been done before and therefor there is reference material to improve on and not start 'fresh'
3. it includes a spire automatically without the developers feeling the need to 'cheat' their way up, since a spire on a flat roof always seem to create a lot of controversity

After all i really do hope we get a glass giant without many setbacks and an amazing crown to top it out, but i somehow doubt it will happen.
