So recently Meydan have fenced up the mall section next to this tower and started piling ... Azizi fenced up another part of this project for the construction of their district, and now more activity is being witnessed around the tower, with expectations of them starting on the canal very soon .. basically this tower is becoming more and more real since it looks like they are following on their masterplan ... cannot wait for it to start going up

I like the box, too. And indeed a box is pretty unique if you ask me. It would be the first building over 700m that doesn't taper.

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.

For once...I celebrate a tall tower since the WTC was done usunder...I remember standing atop WTC in New York and amazed that the top floor was the same size as the ground floor...Everything since has tapered or spired...not that there is anything wrong with that but I wondered...will a building stand tall...like this...yes...congrats : )

Especially for Dubai it's a very unique tower. We have seen tons of crazy, tacky and outlandish designs being proposed or built in this city. However, a minimalist box has never been seen before.

This shape might be common in other cities like New York, Chicago, etc. but it's totally new for Dubai and outstanding due to the sheer height as well
I love the classy look of the tower and sincerely hope it won't undergo a design change!

Had the same thought, it's very elegant, like the new skyscraper trend in NYC. Can't wait to see it going up!

I'm really hoping for this megatall "box" to rise. Box skyscrapers are my favorite for some reason.

I think I was never so much in love with a box design. In my opinion, they often appear unimaginative and generic (There are some few exceptions though, where a boxy design is very elegant looking).

In Dubai, however, this design is really wonderful because of its striking simplicity in comparison to most of the local architecture. Also the overall megatall scale and sleek appearance adds to the quality of this masterpiece

Now I just want to see it U/C. The fact that the district has begun construction is a good sign for the Meydan One tower as well

most inefficient structural solution is a square 4 point tower.
