Falling behind??? These days the supertalls pages are mostly filled with projects in China and New york and Moscow. three global superpowers so how could you expect Dubai to keep up with them?
The good news for Dubai is that most of the towers it's going to get are actually built, the bad news is some of them are dog sh*t.

Dubai Creek Harbour: the next ‘big city within a city’

Published: 22:12 July 17, 2013

Dubai: Anyone travelling on Ras Al Khor Road will have noticed a new boulevard taking shape not far from Dubai’s mangrove forest and bird sanctuary at the head of its iconic creek.
The signage identifies the new project as “Dubai Creek Harbour”, though the boulevard seems to lead straight to a construction site near a protected area where thousands of wild pink flamingos feed.
Newly-planted date palms line both sides of the road. Cranes, trucks and earth-movers, conspicuously absent from the site for years, can be seen on site.
The groundwork shows it is in overdrive where the stalled The Lagoons project was supposed to be built, but developers have given only scant details.
Article continues below
But it indicates that Dubai is back on the master-planned community mega-projects trail.
In May, Dubai Holding announced that they will revive The Lagoons jointly with Emaar Properties.

The original The Lagoons project, launched in 2006 but stalled by the financial downturn, was to have seven islands with residential units, shopping centres, office buildings and marinas linked by bridges.
A visit to The Lagoons’ old sales offices now shows a dilapidated structure that has suffered years of ill upkeep.
But a closer look shows it’s become a hive of activity as engineers and designers are busy at work.
Workers are also seen jazzing up a giant hoarding that remained empty for years.
Industry experts had speculated that Dubai Creek Harbour is the The Lagoons rebranded. Asked if this was the case, an Emaar spokesperson declined to answer and referred us back to the June 9 statement by the company on the project.
Emaar’s June announcement made through the Dubai Financial Market stated that Dubai Creek Harbour will have “a central business district and a mix of cultural, commercial, technology, educational, healthcare, sporting, entertainment, shopping malls and residential uses, all designed around a series of lagoons and green boulevards.”
Whether it’s a rebranded The Lagoons or a separate project altogether, work on the Dubai Creek Harbour comes on the heels of a real estate recovery.
Property consultant Knight Frank reported that Dubai real estate prices jumped 18.3 per cent in the past year, though Deutsche Bank said apartment prices remain between 43 and 61 per cent below their peak.
Dubai Holding announced Dh1.2 billion in net profits for 2012, a near six-fold increase from 2011. For its part, Emaar announced a Dh2.12 billion net profit last year.
It’s not the first time the two Dubai property giants have joined hands.
Emaar and Dubai Holding are jointly developing Dubai Hills as part of the master development of Mohammad Bin Rashid (MBR) City, where the world’s biggest mall, a Universal Studios theme park and a park larger than London’s 350-acre Hyde Park are planned.

Really hope this would be built but it might just get cancelled like many other towers that were proposed.

It wasn't even proposed so it can't be canceled. All they ever said was "We are considering a 1km tower in the lagoons project". Not sure what this thread is still doing in the proposed section.

Well that's like Apple saying we're considering making an IPhone 6.

The city's sitting pretty with the tallest building in they're own back yard, and the know how to build the next one quick when they are ready. All the cards are in place for this to be a reality.

You forgot about the possible deal between emaar and kingdom holdings. There's no way emaar will be building two km tall towers at once. So basically we're not sure where, how tall and who will build it. Add to that that no recent articles about the lagoons project mentions the tower and you have very unclear situation.

And yes when Alwaleed announced it's Kingdom Tower (then kalled mile height tower). He wasn't considering it he was planning it

Are they going to develop the whole area? This looks massive.

what i hope is that we get to know what phases this will consist of and if we still will get the Dubai Towers Dubai. i could imagine we would see plans for the first phase which includes some highrises and hopefully the Dubai Towers Dubai and the render featuring a concept, just white design filling the gap for the later to be designed megatall in the mix.

This is the Lagoons thread from the UAE section, it should give you a better idea of how large this neighborhood will be.
