Very impressive thanks for sharing this will be a Central business district in its own right. And a Totally white tower will be very visible. Will probably be able to see it way down the Main highway Towards Abu Dhabi.

DMCC may build Uptown Dubai project with multinational partners

Interesting article, seems that the current piling is not for one of the supertalls?? Unless another smaller residential tower is started & completed elsewhere on the site??

Quote:
The first tower in the free zone expansion will be delivered by the time Expo 2020 kicks off in the emirate, however, the two super tall towers, anchoring the development and designed by architects Adrian Smith & Gordon Gill from Chicago, are slotted for completion later, he said, adding that the timeline of construction and delivery of the project as a whole is still fluid.

my guess is the current piling is for the 3rd taller tower in this cluster which is 300m+ but not the first 2 tallest!

Since the consultant said there is one tower that is 300m in the works this makes a perfect sense

Is Jumeirah Park abandoned? If anyone ever even lived there, that is. Not one car in the roads in any of the updates.

I live in a similar (except much smaller) "instant upper class residential community" built from nothing SimCity-style in my city, and the number of cars going up and down the street all day long is just insane, I feel like some people just drive up and down the street all day. That's why the pics of Jumeirah Park almost look really deserted to me. But yeah maybe people there just spend more time in their house or at work, and less time in their cars.

As for the pic, are they working on a second building below the first, or is that a storage area?

Is that still the most current design concept for Uptown Dubai?

This was never a current design to begin with .. just go back one page you will find what you are looking for

Thanks.

Ugh. That curved design above would obviously be much better than that wrinkled thing.

Just saw these 2 posts on DMCC chairman Ahmed bin Sulayem's personal instagram. I think he browses SSC, specifically the local Dubai forums.
