The best location would be the round plot in business bay. Not here. It would be good that the BK has a tall neighbor. I mean, if build here, it will be like driving around a suburb and suddenly a megatall, without any sophisticated connection to a business hub. One canīt call JLT and Dubai marina an adequate business hub to a 600m+ office building. The planing behind this is pure rubbish IMO.

I reckon they're gonna make the street that goes vertical on the right side of Gabriel's screenshot wider.

Nothing happened during all this 5 years and as I've already said: Nakheel published so many other projects, I think they've given up the Nakheel Harbour...
Why would they publish other projects, if they would save money for Nakheel Harbour?

Actually the concept sounds amazing. It will totally dominate the area like Burj Dubai does in Downtown. Who cares if the surroundings are residential or whatever.
Also there's more than enough empty land around it which gives hope for future developments.

I totally agree with you! That round plot would be just perfect for this tower.

That would be like one building his barn on a nearby farm belonging to someone else

Yes, you're right! This plot at business Bay is just perfect. There's a chance, that they change the location. Nothing is decided!

I think this plot in business bay is to close to dubai mall to build a commercial tower ... I think that it's a better strategy to build the tower close to dubai Marina thanks these two upcoming projects : Blue Waters & Expo 2020 location.

Why is it too close to Dubai Mall? Why should it not be build close to Dubai Mall?

The Marina is already a great place where many tourists are.
But Business Bay needs a shine-up because there are many plots, which aren't filled.
So tourists aren't interested in visiting Business Bay, because they think there's nothing special.
If this tower would be build in Business Bay, many tourists will also be in this area.
And I think, it wouldn't be too close to Dubai Mall. The Dubai Mall is 2km away from this plot...

Would be a great start for expanding the skyline further westwards.

I would expand the skyline in the direction of Burj Khalifa.
I prefer, that the Dubai Marina skyline and the DBD skyline will be more connected.
