You can consider it normal, but on that end of the marina area the only supertall is Almas Tower, so this supertall (plus the Address one near Blue Waters Island) will put some more weight in that corner. It will definitely be a skyline changer.

...and then a tower twice as tall will come.

Trees in the render doesn't mean trees in the real thing - you've been here for a decade, you know they always do that.

HLG bags raft foundation contract for DMCC’s Uptown Dubai project

Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) has awarded the raft foundation contract for one of the two supertall towers of its Uptown Dubai project to HLG.

DMCC, a trade and enterprise free zone and the master developer of Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT), revealed that raft foundation work on the tower will require 12,000m3 of concrete and 1,500t of reinforcement steel.

HLG, which bested seven other shortlisted bidders, is expected to deliver the project by June 2018.

Shoring and piling works are reportedly underway for the development, which spans 929,030m2.



A commercial and residential building, the first supertall tower of Uptown Dubai will consist of hotel rooms and suites, restaurants, health spas, conference facilities, and 240 residences that will go on sale in early 2018.

Paul Ashton, executive director for property at DMCC, commented: “DMCC’s Uptown Dubai development is well underway as planned, with piling, shoring, and now raft foundation construction by HLG, commencing in March.

“The HLG collaboration will literally provide the foundation for what will take Uptown Dubai’s first […] supertall tower to new heights.”

Ashton noted that the tower will be ready for occupancy by Expo 2020 Dubai.

According to DMCC, Uptown Dubai’s two supertall towers were designed by Chicago-based architectural firm, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill.

A mixed-use property, Uptown Dubai will comprise a total of seven towers atop seven podium levels. The main podium will be implemented 28m above ground. It will reportedly feature a two-level central plaza that will be larger than the New York Times Square, and will be connected to a mall located below it.
