تستعد شركة إعمار العقارية خلال الأيام القليلة المقبلة، لإطلاق مشروع سكني فاخر جديد في منطقة وسط مدينة دبي الذي يحتضن برج خليفة، أعلى ناطحة سحاب في العالم. ويتكون البرج الجديد من 70 طابقاً، ويحمل اسم (فورت) ويضم حزمة شقق فاخرة من غرفتين وثلاث غرف نوم.

وطبقاً لمصادر (البيان الاقتصادي)، فإن الأسعار لم تحدد بعد، لكنها قد تتراوح ما بين 1400 درهم و1800 درهم للقدم المربع الواحد، بسبب نوعية الشقق التي ستقوم بتطويرها الشركة تحت عنوان العقارات الفاخرة. يطل البرج الجديد الذي يقع في إعمار بافليون على النافورة وسيكون على مقربة من مبنى الأوبرا قيد الإنشاء.
According to the article in Arabic this tower will have 70 floors and according to renders it will as well have at least 5 floors podium.

I'm not thrilled with Dubai 's new style of building relatively plain conservative buildings. Save that for older, more sophisticated cities. Dubai used to be known for big, bold, and outrageous designs that were occasionally tacky, but always unforgettable. I don't really think that the newer building proposals, such as this one, reflect that.

I think that they don't reflect that is a good thing, these unique towers will look much better alongside with some more normal ones.

And?


EDIT: What I meant was that a week or so ago I saw ground-work construction happening on some big plot in the area, and if I well remember it was on this same plot.

Well, to each their own. These new towers have less personality and don't reflect the original design styles in the area as well. But if simple and tasteful and plain is what you are looking for, then I guess the new proposals are fine. I just don't consider Dubai to be the place for that.

Dubai builds crazy, unique towers: "Omg such ugly buildings ugliest I've ever seen f*ck Dubai just look at *random western city* they do it right bla bla"

Dubai builds sleek, modern, generic towers: "Omg why do they build so boring designs I don't like it for reason xyz bla"

I generally prefer simple and plain glass towers, but also really like unique towers. In the case of dubai, there are so many unique towers that they steal each others show, so I'm glad for more modern towrrs to cancel that effect out a bit.

Too many outstanding towers let the skyline turn out very messy. Normal and classic, but beautiful towers balance the skyline well.

Number of floors will be 76 for Forte Tower 1 (6 Podium + 70 Regular Floors) and 56 for Forte Tower 2 (6 Podium + 50 Regular Floors)

Source: http://www.gulfconstructiononline.com/news/story/4174

regarding the height there is still no official release whether this is a supertall (300m+) or not.

There are a couple of residential buildings with similiar number of floors in Dubai which can be used as a reference (between 80 and 70 floors):
Code:
Name                              Height    Floors
D1 Tower		          284m      80	
Ahmed Abdul Rahim Al Attar Tower  342m      76
Sulafa Tower		          288m	    76
Al Habtoor City Tower 1		  300m	    74
Al Habtoor City Tower 2		  300m      74
Cayan Tower		          306.4m    73
Marina Pinnacle		          280m	    73
HHHR Tower		          317.6m    72
The Atrium		          277.6m    70
Considering no/very small crown on Forte these are the best references:
Code:
Name                              Height    Floors
Sulafa Tower		          288m	    76
Al Habtoor City Tower 1		  300m	    74
Al Habtoor City Tower 2		  300m      74
Cayan Tower		          306.4m    73
Marina Pinnacle		          280m	    73
Depending on floor height the chances are good this is a residential supertall with exactly or slightly over 300m, but it might also turn out to be 280m/290m and thus being only a skyscraper.

Al habtoor as a reference is quite misleading, since it's not clear how tall exactly it will turn out in the end.
