DUBAI | Al Wasl Tower | 300m | 984ft | 60 fl | U/C

Dubai Ruler launches three other landmark projects



... Sheikh Mohammad then viewed the mega model of Al Wasl Tower, which will rise on the Sheikh Zayed Road. An important urban and tourist landmark in Dubai, the tower will look like an integrated vertical city in view of standards of modern tower architecture featuring the world’s tallest ceramic facade, in addition to vertical gardens and the light museum, the first of its kind in the region, to showcase the history, art and technologies ...

Renders show the fact that it will be taller than Al Hikma Tower which is 282m, making this one a supertall.

loving the trend for more modern projects for dubai, the skyline will become not onl more and more dense, but also they will be weaken the stress all the unique towers put into the skyline. love this for marina and downtown as well.

Nice one, a good break from all those postmodernist towers going up recently.

I was already waiting for a skyscraper on this side of SZR, as it makes much sense. I mean, on the other side of the highway there is the downtown, plus it´s right next to a metro station. Good development that they start building here.

Ah if only I get a dollar for every time I read such a comment!! For the 100th time Dubai doesn't rely on the current number of population, which is more than 2.3 millions, but on the fact that its developments will attract more and more expats to the city whom actually make 83% of its population. Future forecasts predict the population to exceed 3.5 millions in 2020

If you compare it with Hikma tower (282m) you notice this one is quite taller than the latter. So I guess it will be around 300-320m

That's beautiful. But designs like those always seem to get cancelled.
