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?

This is Dubai not Melbourne! The city is based on tourism, the weather is hostile and it has all necessary facilities it's just will never be pedestrian nor will it develop mountains magically and become less flat! This is unique for Dubai and I'm happy with it

I.M.O. only the piling for the tower core was completed.
In the circular hole, the core foundation itself will be built (raft foundation?).


The piling and foundation for the cable arrays has not even started yet.


Nevertheless: good progress for such huge project.
Cannot wait to see it go vertical !




Does anybody know if the core will be made out of concrete, or out of steel?
I'm very curious about any construction details...

I would say Jumeirah Central is City Walk 4.0. Creek Harbour is 5.0

We don't really know much about what Jumeirah Central will be yet. Just a concept full of placeholders.

Dubai Holding owns the land, thats all. But things are changing - to the better - so fast at Dubai Holding after change of management.

Imagine if the "ropes" starts making screeching sounds at the base because of the friction, wind and the heavy loads...
