I think there's a bit of confusion over whether the preparation works are on the supertall or not as someone a few pages back suggested it was not adding some photos of the master plan, so could any expert put some light over this? Thanks in advance, it is certainly something important to discuss here...

I am in Dubai this weekend, overlooking the site, I can confirm that the only activity is in the east corner. Eqpt on site 1 x piling machine, 3 x mobile cranes, 3 x earth movers & some trucks. There are two site boards, laid out on the ground ready to be erected, unfortunately laying face down. What is very noticeable none of the site offices, vehicles or even the workmens hi-vi's have any logos on them, all very hush hush. Will post some close up pics of the site when I return to UK next week. Also the hoarding decals have been changed all around the site.

New name for development??

If you look at the above pic, you can see white squares on the fencing, this seemed to be covering up something.

One of them has fallen down in the wind, underneath it says "Uptown Dubai" with the website address "uptowndubai.ae".

DMCC themselves said: "The Burj 2020 District is envisioned to be a world-class mixed-use development that shall be anchored by two super tall mixed-use towers (within Phase 1 and Phase 2 respectively)..."

From inronny's overview photos, it seems like that fence down the middle of the site is the divide for phases 1 and 2.

Two by Emaar, one by DMCC, one by Meydan. Who's next?

Guesses from my outside perspective: Damac's quest for the world's largest Damac sign might lead to a supertall, but who knows. Azizi seems to be going completely crazy with development lately, wouldn't put it past them. Nakheel? Zero expectations.

Located within walking distance to DMCC’s Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Uptown Dubai is set to become the ‘Hotspot’ of Dubai and the new beat for business offering a 24/7 live-work-thrive experience for residents and businesses.

Uptown Dubai will include more than 10 million sq/ft of grade A commercial and residential space, more than 200 retail and F&B outlets, approximately 3,000 residences, a unique central entertainment plaza that will be larger than New York Times Square, and a number of luxury hotels all offering supreme amenities for residents, workers and guests.

Uptown Dubai will be anchored by two iconic super-tall towers designed by internationally renowned architects Adrian Smith & Gordon Gill from Chicago.

To keep updated on all of the exciting progress of Uptown Dubai please register at www.uptowndubai.ae

I think Uptown Dubai is name of the whole district, not the tower. Tower most likely will have its own name.
