It might change, but all 55 floors are at the top, there is nothing below it.

We don't know .. this 55 floors number was given by an insider and Emaar could have easily change this! We basically have zero idea about this tower! It's kept in total darkness so anything is possible.

So Dubai Holding has a stake in this project? No wonder it is speeding ahead so quickly

they have in all Dubai Creek Harbour ... but Emaar feels more involved.

Concerning the recent updates ... it looks like piling was done all over the hole and not only in the center ... I am really excited for what next .... its time to start going up

Yes! That is the good news we've been waiting for

I expect it to rise above the ground level in a matter of days

Wow, they don't mess around. Unbelievable how far the construction is already! The announcement of the tower feels like yesterday!

Ground broke on 12/10/2016, foundation complete on 25/05/2017. The speed here is insane! Most 300m- towers in Dubai nowdays spend twice as much time in the ground works stage.

Yes, and Dubai Holding under the new and robust management of Al Habbai (of Meraas fame) will hopefully reveal their own plans for the area around the Burj.

Which is normal ... here they want to finish asap that's why the speed is insane. Other Emaar projects are as well taking forever to finish while this one looks like is gonna be rising in a record time

Nothing wrong with City Walk, at least it will stop the development from just being another Downtown clone.

There is nothing like downtown in that, the whole masterplan doesn't look like anything already built,! But having a 4th citywalk after bluewaters and la mer, is too much! Anyways Dubai Holding track record isn't that great and I won't expect anything unique delivered from their side! We only can hope Emaar have the majority of stake in the masterplan

Really no similarities at all? A massive tower surrounded by smaller towers in a radial grid layout? Perhaps a boulevard of some sort going around said tower?

J/K I love Emaar, they will deliver something amazing I'm sure. And DH is a shit developer can't argue with that, but I'm hoping under the new guy we get something interesting (like the marsa al arab project).

They just need to turn it into a city, they should have a school, a hospital and diffrent use buildings in the area to give it some life, i want to see people walking to school and that kind of stuff... 99% of the people in downtown dubai are tourists... it just doesn't feel right..

Why was my post deleted? Is it illegal to post news from The National here?
