For me it's a clear sign that the Dubai Creek Harbour project is not another pipe dream, but really happening - just like Downtown Dubai! We should all appreciate the exciting times which lie ahead! Dubai has never seen such a big project before and has never built a new tallest tower since the Burj Khalifa, but now the time has finally come
This is so great never thought of comparing but this is so exciting ... Definitely Dubai is writing its history and we are living in a very exciting era.

Are they really cancelled

- Nakheel tower have lots of signs that it is only sleeping and not dead.

- Waterfront City just woke up last week, they announced they will resume working on it.

- Meraas still own the land of Jumeirah Gardens

- Dubai Lagoons was always part of Dubai holdings, who are big participants in Dubai Creek Harbour, I really wish they bring back one of their most iconic projects, the Dubai Towers

So maybe, Dubai Creek Harbour in 2018 is going to look close to Downtown in 2007 in terms of construction progress? That would be absolutely awesome What do you guys think about this?
This year they will definitely start with the retail section of it, which is supposed to be one of a kind, add to that all this construction is only done by Emaar while Dubai Holdings are a co-owner of the district, we can only hope they bring some awesome projects of their own soon as well.

I think this is just the beginning, and everyone should know that all this construction is going on while the market is in its low cycle, we only can imagine what will happen when it picks up again.

The question I would like to end up asking is, will Dubai is another 10 years time, beat its own record and build a taller tower AGAIN? only time will tell

The interesting thing too that the first residential projects in both distracts is The Residence and Dubai Creek Residence which is similar to each other!

Tu arrive sur un forum anglais, tu affiche clairement que t'es français en ne parlant pas anglais et tu pose une question qui peut être répondu en utilisant 3 sec de réflexion + google .

Après je m'étonne plus qu'à l’international qu'on nous crache dessus



Sinon pour répondre à ta question, oui c'est une "nouvelle" annoncée depuis 2016 et dont la construction semble bien partie.
Même si sa hauteur exacte n'est pas connue, elle devrait être la plus haute tour construite jusqu'à présent.



Sorry for french, just answering that fool

Looked it up and found out that this project was also called "The Tower" before it was called Nakheel Tower and that this building would have been the most expensive building ever built had it been built ($38 billion+)

Shame that water is going to disappear, looks like those ponds were artificial in the first place so I wonder why they created them initially?

They were created because the initial masterplan for the area was totally different. Those were not ponds BTW, rather waterways and canals

The current masterplan is of course a lot better. Less of that Nakheel-style "this will look cool from space" and more of "this will look cool from the ground, where 99.9999999% of us actually are."

the links to nearly all pictures in that old Dubai Towers thread are dead by now, is there still a picture like the one below that shows the original layout for the area?

Also stumbled on this. I'm wondering if it means that the twins are definitely out of the picture? I dislike The Tower, but if it cost us world's tallest twins, then I dislike it even more.

Although the old plan had major flaws I really thought it was one of a kind. Alas but at least the new masterplan is great as well.

That figure is ludicrous, I don't know how they got to that considering this one is $1bn and the 1km tower in Jeddah is $1.25bn. Unless it was going to be 2km+ tall or they're including other developments in that figure it makes no sense.
