Dubai is and will remain unique. I think 3 megatall skyscraper (Burj Khalifa 828m, Burj 2020 ~700m and the Dubai One 711m) would be much more a record than one 1000m tower (Dont get me wrong, I love the Kingdom Tower).

I'm already happy if one of these megatall projects gets realized at the end. Most likely candidate looks like burj 2020 currently. Let's see.

We can be happy if Dubai One with 700m Creek Expansion and Dubai Pearl get build and finished. These are beautiful projects. Further i hope Dubai One gets some new features inside and outside.

Please just build it! If Burj 2020 doesn't get built, then at least this one!

Dubai Ruler inspects Meydan's District One project

Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai H H Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum toured the construction site of Dubai One project located at Mohammed Bin Rashid City.

He was accompanied by Dubai Crown Prince H H Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, chairman of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, director general of Dubai’s Protocol and Hospitality Department Khalifa Saeed Suleiman and a number of engineers and officials involved in the project.

Sheikh Mohammed reviewed models of the $6.8bn (AED25bn) project, which will be built on an area that stretches along 50 million sqm.

Sheikh Mohammed was briefed by Saeed Al Tayer, chairman of the board and CEO of Meydan, the project developer, who said, "The project will offer a range of phenomenal features and activities including parks, man-made beaches and a 7km stretch of Crystal Lagoons offering a true beachside and active lifestyle."

The first phase of the development is located between Meydan and Al Khail Road and is scheduled for completion before 2020.

Sheikh Mohammed also inspected the project's show villas, featuring modern Arabic, Mediterranean, and Contemporary styles. He endorsed the project and directed the implementation of its four phases in accordance with its timeline.

Sheikh Mohammed said, “We are keen on giving thorough attention to the security of the UAE’s citizens and expatriate residents, their social and family stability and spread of happiness in every home and district, as well as to make happiness a culture in our homeland."

I hope this gets started soon, it is one of my current favourite proposals. Also would be the tallest building in the world discounting spires which is not an insignificant achievement!

Don't expect any major news on this one or Burj2020 ... my 2 cents are both towers construction will be postponed till the market is in better conditions so I would say end of 2016 or beginning of 2017!

Meydan One is the name of the whole project ... Dubai One is a tower in Meydan One

They say it will be done before the EXPO2020!! So 2020 as well! But they need to start like now if they truly want to finish it this early which is becoming more impossible with every second passing

projects of this size might as well have no schedule at all. too many things that can go wrong and delay the project.
