altin don't be so rude you got me wrong.

what i mean is that the outer part/the leaves will not be connected to the actual building and just a glass structure, similar to the proposed dubai pearl designs if you remember.
i thought ch1le meant there will be a lot of room with no windows
because the outer part (the leaves) but he was actually talking about
how wide the building is and that's why there won't be much space for windows in small hotel rooms for example.

we have the info it'll be 80 storeys, but in the renders and models it looks like a 30 storey tower

we have to wait for that
So this trump thing is going to replace this? :








If so, I'm very very sad.

Wow.... I didn't like the Palm Jumeirah (old design) before... having seen the pics in the post above, I'm somewhat disappointed that it's not going to be built.

That was the pinnacle which was renamed al-burj and moved to the waterfront and to be honest, palm jumeirah would have looked like it was "stabbed" if it was built there (can't remember who said that ).

Aswell, the render of the flower tower can't be right. If it's 360m it'll be way thinner and if it does end up like in the render it'll be only 150m or so.

good, I'm so very glad since al-burj is one of my all time favorite buildings.


This Trump tower doesn't look so bad as a concept but it needs more work.

i think all of us agree, the palm jumeirah is the only place - except any other of the 5 huge island projects - the tower fits in well

such a tower in downtown or in a cbd? no, thanks

render doesn't show too much details

shouldn't take long till the tower will be launched, probably before end of the year
design might change

Nakheel have been changing their minds all the time about this plot so a redesign is definitely likely, although the current design is fine. Just a little tweaking would be nice.

That's alot of man-made islands. By the way, with all that desert and salt water around, where do they get their drinking water from? Excuse my ignorance but I didn't really know that the Arabian penninsula had big rivers flowing through it.
