A mixed used supertall coming up at Sheikh Zayed Road designed by Perkins+Will Architecture.

is there a developer? also, i'm a little concerned that the uploader's handle is 'fictionalpixel' Interesting concept though, reminiscent of projects Adrian Smith+Gordon Gill designed for Dubai.

What a crazy... thing! I like the shape but I'm not sure about the golden cladding. It looks totally conceptual anyway.

amazing location, amazing height, amazing design. It's like the Incheon Twins got revived. But I agree with Hudson that we need sources.

You're right. I hope that other information will be published soon.
I alsoreally like the design!
The golden cladding could turn out nicely, but maybe it would be more "safe" to choose an other color. I like the basement of the tower. The parking lot, which is above ground,nearly disappears, because of the architecture of the building.

Maybe it's already a good sign, that other current projects are shown in the video, like The Address Thr BLVD. That's a guarantee, that it is not an outdated building

They are a creative studio, so someone must have contracted them to do this animation! The name fictional doesn't imply anything here.

Take a look at the vimeo-account of fictional pixel. There are a few other videos, which show buildings like BLVD Heights, a current upcoming project of Emaar. So they don't just make there own videos about some fictional towers which are never going to be build.

It is evocative of AS + GG's work, but with enough variation so that it isn't quite architectural plagiarism. I'd like to see it happen.

Gorgeous tower! Dubai needs more stuff like this.

I think that is just the sunlight reflecting in the render and the entire glass will be reflective blue.

Wasn't alive to begin with. Most likely an architect's wet dream with no client behind it.

Exactly ... this one was never taken seriously or even was seriously proposed

3 other proposals for the same plot: Obviously whatever is planned for here is meant to be 400m+ ... for some reason only first proposal was in HD!

Last one is terrible, middle one is okay, but the first one - build it!

It's a bit like the Commerzbank tower, but in that Dubai style that Western armchair architecture critics love to whine about for page after page about how cheap it looks, but that is so charming in how uniquely Dubai it is.
