We have a good idea where this will be built, and I can post picks of the plot if any one wants to see.

Even though it wont be built right next SZR you will have no problems seeing it.

I really like the location. It should give the skyline more depth, which keeps it from looking so linear.

Revealed: Actual site of the world’s tallest commercial tower coming up in Dubai.

If demand is there the tower could even surpass Burj Khalifa: DMCC chief.

This to me is looking like Naheels down sized answer to the larger NHT more and more every day. The locations are very close to each other plus they don't have to spend as much money building the additional canal and surrounding buildings/neighborhood cause one already exists.

He mentioned DMCC are registering around 200 companies a month which won't take long for supply to run out. For those of you that don't know JLT is a free zone which makes it very attractive for companies and small businesses.

I expect a full launch and much more details regarding this building come October when the Real estate Tradeshow Cityscape is in Dubai.

If Dubai get the World Expo 2020 in November this project will rise as if its on steroids at lightning speed just watch.

Many many years ago, 2004 - 5 or something, there were some proposal for a huge tower in the area, but we didn't knew who was behind it

I heard the original plan of JLT was a shorter version of the Almas Tower with a Lake on each side. The two lakes had the clusters of three buildings as we see now.

The additional two lakes were added on later because the cluster plots were selling well.

Since the currently U/C tallest commercial tower is 660 m Ping'an IFC in Shenzhen, they should be much higher than this to be secure in the tallest office tower bid - even the 800+m Qianhai tower in Shenzhen proposal will very likely be office too, so DMCC may really have to go above BK 828 m height to play safe, if the height is really the main concern.

Wow! Awesome news! But still, it would be batter, if it was built somewhere in Downtown...

Also, the worst thing about this tower, that it will have boxy shape But I hope that it will be beautiful, anyway.

The Almas Tower, was indeed shorter in the first two versions, it wasn't even called Almas .... but can't say about the rest. All I remember from back in 2003 or maybe even earlier, it was that the entire area of JLT, or an huge part of it, was kind a boarded up, and here and there were some boards with renders of some towers on them, none of them were actually build.

THe area wasn't called JLT back then, rather with the the previous name the DMCC was going with.

DMCC's center piece/tallest tower Almas means Diamond in Arabic if I'm correct. They also have the Gold, Silver, and Platinum Towers.

Now considering that I wouldn't be surprised if this towers name is connected to some form of precious metal or commodity when formally launched.
