DUBAI | Dubai One | 711m | 2333ft | 161 fl | App

711m tower rising in Dubai













World's tallest residential tower will form part of Meydan One, also featuring a huge new mall, the world’s longest indoor ski slope, a 25,000 sqm indoor sports facility, the biggest dancing fountains in the world, among others.

A new large-scale leisure, residential and hospitality destination is coming up in Dubai as part a new record-smashing city-within-a-city set to stand out as a master development.

Meydan One will feature a retractable roof measuring 150x80metres, which will open in winter months; more than 300 restaurants, cafes and kiosks, and luxury brands.

The mall is part of the Meydan One development, which will also feature a 711-metre tall Dubai One tower, a civic plaza, a 4km canal and a marina with 100 berths.

Located between Meydan and Al Khail Road, the 3.67 million square metre Meydan One development is led by Meydan City Corporation, according to a company statement Monday.

The value of the project was not revealed.

The first phase of the development is set to be completed before 2020, the statement said, without elaborating.

The Dubai One, expected to be the world’s tallest residential tower, and its integrated podium incorporate 350,000sqm of gross floor area, 885 residential apartments and a five-star hotel featuring 350 rooms

Also featured are a conference centre, an observation deck at 655 metre-high, a sky restaurant at 675 metre-high, a plaza view restaurant and terrace, as well as the Meydan One Marina Yacht Club.

Sports enthusiasts will have access to an indoor ski slope, expected to be the world’s longest at 1.2km; an indoor multi-purpose sport facility measuring 25,000sqm; over 5.3km bicycle and jogging trails and a 9km boardwalk.

over 700m and not tapering. even with that giant crown, this being pure residential means we get a heck of a lot of floors out of this, might make it for the building with most floors. i was just about to go to bed, when i saw this. looks like i'll have some nice articles to read in the train tomorrow morning though. this came out of nowhere, finally the crazy visionary projects for Dubai are back

approved doesn't make it automatically happen though. this needs a lot of money to flow. the design is also in the very early stages. This makes for another great project to follow anyways though

added building and location on SSP: http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=106729

also just realized the location opens the way a bit more to the Lagoons project as well. could you imagine all these projects done and seeing the Burj and the Lagoons from your kitchen in this tower

Well, it surely looks great at this stage. Although the ski slope does give my inner Energy Management engineer shivers. It's basically a giant cooling fin as presented, requiring insulation on all sides. At least the mall roof looks like a great place to install PV panels, though.

As for the tower... well, I find myself strangely without an opinion either way. Towers so rarely turn out to look like their first render that I can't really be hyped or upset about it at this time. Okay, there's a tower in the drawings, but I've got the feeling that the finished product won't look like it at all.

It seems that Dubai is going to store both the highest Office and residential towers in the world.

btw, does anybody know anything about the time frames for this project? I mean when is it going to be built?

They say phase 1 will be done before 2020! but what is phase 1 exactly I don't know.

His Highness seems pretty optimistic about this one cz on his Facebook he ends the post saying "we will make sure to provide visitors the best experience they ever had in our expo 2020"

Anw time will tell

The tower is great but the ski-slope building is awesome! Although it would be more futuristic if those were homes/offices as well.

So, the tower is part of the first phase of the project!

Interesting question. I hope AltinD or someone else from Dubai will enlighten us shortly. But since the ruler of Dubai himseld is behind this company and the project, there is faith

The last floors should be quite above 600m, with typical floor heights for a residental tower 150 floors or more seem to be realistic indeed. Can't wait for more information

Is this absolutely certain? This really looks to me like one of those projects that will never be built.
