if so, the only design we have is not a design, but merely a concept not even from architects would be like saying white boxes in the background of a render look too plain

We have a design for Baku Tower, it's that ridiculous thing in the Skyscrapers section. You might be confusing it with Azerbaijan Tower.

Look at any kid's sandbox and imagine it a lot bigger, that's what it'll look like. They said construction won't start before 2015.

I am kind of hoping they build B2020 in Business Bay, it would be a great balance with the Burj Khalifa

The new tower, that will be build in the Opera District will already be a great balance with the BK.
...yes the location is not the best, but I'm sure, that some buildings in the direction of Ibn Battuta Mall will be launched around Burj 2020 in the near future.

Yep, we know that in Dubai, when big towers are built, more towers will follow.

DMCC Masterplan tender for ‘Dubai’s Burj 2020 District’ underway

Expansion will include the world’s tallest commercial tower, the ‘Burj 2020’

Dubai, UAE; 8 June 2014: DMCC, the Government of Dubai Authority with a mandate to enhance Dubai’s position as a global gateway for commodity trade and enterprise, announced today that four global design firms are participating in its Masterplan design competition for the new ‘Burj 2020’ District’, which will have as its centrepiece the world’s tallest commercial tower, the ‘Burj 2020’.

The Masterplan aims to enhance the very essence of the ‘Burj 2020 District’ by creating an efficient and vibrant world-class urban business destination to showcase a blend of contemporary and traditional Masterplanning. The Masterplan will also include transport and traffic flow solutions to create a swift journey to and from the area.

Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman, DMCC, said:

“The Masterplan design competition is the next natural step of the development. We have selected four of the world’s top creative, specialised firms to design a Masterplan for the ‘Burj 2020 District’. Smart solutions will be a principle feature of our new development, affording higher levels of efficiency and urban sustainability a pre-requisite for the global business community of the future.

We are going to create the optimal environment for trade and enterprise with a commercial district that brings together retail, residential, business and lifestyle services. It will also increase tourism, attract more international investors to the region, as well as becoming a major hub for multi-nationals enabling these businesses to grow, innovate and trade, which again impacts positively on Dubai ‘s GDP.”

The ‘Burj 2020 District’ is being constructed as a direct result of customer demand in particular from large regional corporates, multi-nationals and multi-business entities.

“The availability of highly efficient, purpose built commercial office space suitable for multi-national companies is in short supply. DMCC is committed to filling this gap and the ‘Burj 2020 District will be the first to do so”, Bin Sulayem, added.

The Masterplan design competition for the ‘Burj 2020 District’ follows DMCC’s announcement in July 2013 to build the world’s tallest commercial tower as part of its Free Zone expansion plans; DMCC named the tower ‘Burj 2020’ in November 2013 in honour of Dubai’s Expo 2020 win. The ground breaking for the ‘Burj 2020 District’ is planned for 2015.

The ‘Burj 2020 District’ is also part of DMCC’s strategy to provide companies with a commercial property offering unique to the Dubai marketplace – including benefits such as single ownership, contiguous commercial office space in the heart of Dubai, close to metro stations, world-class cargo facilities, ports and airports that connect to over 220 destinations including the new Al Maktoum International Airport.

Businesses around the globe look for a place where they can expand, access new markets and conduct their day-to-day operations in a secure, transparent and modern environment. DMCC provides this infrastructure with its existing 66 mixed-use commercial and residential towers and over 220 retail outlets in operation, there are currently over 85,000 people working and living within the DMCC Free Zone in Dubai today. With an average of 200 companies choosing to join DMCC each month and a 94% retention rate, DMCC remains the UAE’s largest and fastest growing free zone with over 8,700 member companies.

I doubt that this is 'in the heart of Dubai and close to the metro stations in relation to the current location.

Sound like this will be a whole district! So maybe there will be more nice towers, than just the Burj 2020.

So we don't have to wait long, until they finally publish the renders!

Because 99.9% of the time when someone asks that question, they follow it up with something along the lines of "this Tower is pointless as there isn't enough people to fill it. Dubai is full of blah, blah, blah". Or just trying to be negative or indirect in the first place. AltinD has been around long enough to know when these questions are just to start an argument or to be negative in a thread. If the guy has access to this site, then he has access to Google. If he really wanted to know the occupancy rate of Dubai, why wouldn't he just type it in the search bar? It brings up about 250,000 results. The point is, ask a stupid, indirect question, get a stupid, indirect answer.

So the guy who comes up with the smartass douchey response gets his post left up that adds nothing, but the guy who calls him out for being a dick gets a warning? This site needs to get their priorities straight lol
