Even though the new website isn't considered as construction progress, it's a clear sign that the project is still alive

I've got a sneaking suspicion they're putting that off until they can feasibly build those air-conditioned stadiums the Qatari promised to sugar their bid for the 2022 World Cup. If the current technology level only allows major sports events in the Middle East to be held in winter, might as well wait until that obstacle is overcome before applying for the Summer Olympics.

That corner on the golf coruse where the football field is looks very attractive for a staduim

I tried to find something new but i couldn't

only found this Old news article that says work on Villas in the General Meydan city area is ongoing.


http://www.thenational.ae/business/p...t-one-in-dubai

And also interestingly this site haven't had its copyright updated for 2016 which is abit of a bad sign. http://www.meydan.ae/about/

I hope this isn`t another case of Putting this on the shelf and putting all the money into Another project, like Iconic tower instead considering both Emaar and Meydan got Strong involvement and economic support from the Dubai government.

Thanks for sharing picture of that Model Gabriel. That model really shows how serious the developer is must have cost a fortune to make it.

Something I've learned the last few months: If there are any news about any Dubai supertall, Gabriel will post them. If he doesn't, DubaiM will. In addition, AltinD and Dubai_Skyscraper will post whatever information they come across. This is a truth everyone can rely on and should be considered before asking for updates.

That's one impressive site model! Maybe the businessmen there also want to create their new ultrawhite, lightweight paper-inspired structure by taking it to the next step. I mean a paper structure over the river, what a concept! The varying square-like geometric lines that (completely block) the river... so fascinating. Oh wait the papers aren't supposed to be there? ^_~

Poor model ;p.

Kidding aside, clearly the tower is but a fraction of what they have in mind and I'd imagine if they have the funds to build the entire complex / city center, a tower shouldn't be too troublesome.
