I'm still optimistic about this project. And 4 years are possible. Just take a look for example to the new Address BLVD. When this one have a similar pace it could be topped out in 2020. And when not in 2020, anyway i can easily wait one additional year

Who says it really really has to be complete by the Expo? That's just a marketing strategy.

Ok so guys I took a taxi especially to take photos of this plot and I told him to go round and round while I take pics lol .. anw you judge on what you see! Today

2 notes: 1- The plot is huge and waaayyy bigger than what appears to be from google earth.

2- There is soil testing machines on the site but no real activity (maybe cz it was midday?!)

I see de-watering taking place on site, and also some of those tankers are sucking water up from somewhere, so perhaps an underground tanker is there where they pour the water from the de-watering process

I am not sure if this confirms it but if you check Exhibitors for cityscape global 2015 you find DMCC with the description :" ... DMCC is also developing the ‘Burj 2020 District’ as part of our DMCC Free Zone expansion strategy to provide large corporates with a commercial property offering unique to the Dubai marketplace."

Hopefully this means we will finally see a render for this District and Tower ... 8 September is just around the corner now

Cityscape could turn out pretty intersting this year, also hoping to see the final design of the EXPO2020 and models for NSHAMA City, District One, Design District and the Dubai Canal, plus a couple new towers maybe

Well, this is most certainly AS+GG however I would take it with a grain of salt for now as it hasn't been officially released yet. Still a beautiful tower for Dubai! Any idea on the height?

the tower next to the main tower is just a box, but stands for this already completed project. So if you guess the size, keep in mind that this box is around 176m in height. Someone should try to get a floor estimate though, that might be more helpful.

Doubt it is final, but amazing design anyways

WOW. Just... WOW.

Given the box of The Dome is scaled correctly, the tower is pretty much 700m tall...! It looks rather conceptual though.
