That , the general location of this tower and the planing of both communities JLT and the Marina with the highway cutting through it and the huge intersections at their corners make no sense at all. "Urban planing" at it´s worst.

Oh yes, great observation. ;-) On DMCC website, Burj 2020 is said connected to Nakheel Harbour and Tower Station by a pedestrian air conditioned bridge. Concerning the distance which separates jumeirah beach and Burj 2020, I think in this masterplan, the megatall is further. While in the Smith + Gill design, it is clother (at the opposite corner, compared to the diagonal).

This kind of stuff, I presume? For an office tower, it's not a too bad solution. Although incredibly dirt-collecting, birds-accomodating and works-obstructing for any maintenance, but at least it is useful for the sunny side, in one sense.

It wasn't an "Urban planning" job, it was a "bean counting" job (squeezing numbers).

Burj 2020 Dubai Tower Building
UAE High Rise Architecture – new skyscraper by RNL Design, Architects

14 Apr 2017

Burj 2020 Dubai Tower Building

Burj 2020 Dubai Tower in UAE

Design: RNL Design

Burj 2020 Dubai Building is an American Architecture Awards Winner in 2017

One of seventy-nine shortlisted buildings that have won the prestigious 2017 American Architecture Awards ® for the best new buildings designed and constructed by American architects in the U.S. and abroad and by international architects for buildings designed and built in the United States.

Burj 2020 Dubai Shortlisted for American Architecture Awards

The aim of the Burj 2020 master plan is to create an integrated design accommodating the world’s tallest commercial tower, enhancing the Dubai brand in general and that of the Jumeirah Lakes Towers development in particular.

The tower is to be completed in advance of Expo 2020 Dubai, an event that will draw significant international attention to Dubai and the UAE.

The combination of the location, function and need represent an opportunity to craft a destination that is both familiar and unique, unlike anything currently existing in the region. The vision is to create a gateway to Dubai that is iconic, diverse and of significant value to the greater community. This can be done by adhering to four root principals.

Burj 2020 Dubai Tower Building

Community – Intent, belief, resource, preference, needs, courtesy, sensitivity and respect. These are the elements of community. The compact nature of this location combined with the large program requirements presents the opportunity to create a mixed use community that exists nowhere else in Dubai.

Connectivity – making connections logistically (multi-model), economically (desirable business center) and personally (culturally rich experience).

Sustainability – to go beyond just “sustaining” and becoming a source of regeneration.
Opportunity – the compact development and mix of uses will present cross pollination and open new avenues for economic, social and cultural development.

Burj 2020 Dubai Tower Building

The project creates a significant new gateway to this growing international city. The development of the new Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International Airport at Jebel Ali, which is planned to be fully operational in time for Expo 2020 Dubai, will change the manner in which visitors approach and enter the city. The 700-metre tall Burj 2020 will offer a new landmark within the city, becoming a significant skyline element. The creation of an observation deck at the highest accessible location within the tower, at a height of 580 metres, offers the opportunity to create the highest observation deck in the world, an attribute that will further enhance the landmark aspect of the project.

The placement of the tower on the site has been shaped by consideration of the views from Sheikh Zayed Road, the existing towers within JLT, the Dubai Eye and from within the public realm. In considering the parallel at Downtown Dubai, the majority of photo opportunities are realized on and around the bridge linking Dubai Mall with the Old Town area. The distance from this point to Burj Khalifa is approximately 330 metres. In considering the placement of the tower on the Burj 2020 site, the eastern corner is most favourable in meeting all the viewing criteria from the road, pedestrian and adjacent building perspectives, ensuring enhanced landmark performance.

Burj 2020 Dubai Tower Building

In addition to the tower, the master plan envisages the creation of a unique new destination within the city – expanding on the principles and values that have made Downtown Dubai a distinctive destination and international landmark.

The diversity of land uses and arrangement on the site aims to optimize the development value and to enhance absorption of development product. Blending employment, a range of living choices, diverse shopping opportunities that includes independent retailers that are possible as a result of the free-trade status of the site, hotel visitors and integrated cultural uses will combine in a dynamic, 24/7 urban environment.

The public realm will reinforce the qualities of the desert oasis, combining textured shade through a combination of planting and building structure, dynamic water elements and a range of public and semi-public landscaped spaces for residents, workers and visitors to enjoy.

Burj 2020 Dubai Tower Building

Ground level entry points to the development will be marked with palm grove planting with tight spacing, offering a deeply shaded environment reminiscent of the oasis. Water walls will be used between the upper level plaza and ground level, generating a vibrant quality and creating white noise to further enhance the special quality of the spaces. Elevators will pass in front of or through the water walls, taking visitors to the upper level retail plazas.

This design is not so bad, but why do they not build something like this on the round plot in business bay, were Hadids towers should have been done?

A small triangle next to Meydan aside, the only thing ever built or proposed in Business Bay since 2009 has been 20-30 storey towers, the area doesn't seem to attract much investment this decade. Maybe in the future.

Not really ... they mean Wasl Tower on SZR not this one ... which was renamed to 2020 tower .. hence the confusion ... plus this design is NOT the winning one!

Both are highly unsuitable for Dubai's dusty atmosphere. This amount of details on the top would collect an immense amount of dirt.

Although I like the new observation deck design.
