So I was passing by the site and suddenly I see this peaking through the fence!!!!



Went and did some more investigation and YES it looks like the first piling machine have moved to the site and its situated where the tallest tower would rise!!!!!!

THIS IS HAPPENING

Hence we can expect the name to be changed. At least it would be more logical to name is something like DMCC Tower. Or if the previous one was Almas Tower, then the new one can be called ReB2 Tower.

Completely unrelated to this thread, but looking at the pictures I started thinking about what condo living in UAE is like. Do condo owners pay strata/condo fees? Are there condo boards like there are in North America? I'm assuming most of them are investor owned, not owner occupied. How are things maintained long-term (in terms of decision making)?

This model from Cityscape 2015 is very clear for orienting the Burj 2020 site with the rest of JLT:


This is the detailed 2D map of the site, with all of the 7 towers pinpointed:


The towers described:



The final map I've made to show the current form:


It looks like they are building the apartments and the 360m office first

Will be great for people like inronny to have the view of those godawful cloned villas blocked, life is better not seeing real estate accidents like that.
