Hahahaha I just commented on the other thread for a tower next to The Damac and then discovered this. Give us an amazing design and this corner of Dubai will be perfect.

This is not necessarily a supertall and opening this thread might be a little premature, but I'm crossing my fingers it will reach 300m

Move it where? Let's wait for more info cz the project is happening for sure so if this was shorter than 300m then we move it.

Yeah but if it turns out to be less than 300 then it's easy to move it.

Is "WOW" in this sense an acronym, or is it meant to reflect how impressive the building will be? If the latter, consider my curiousity poked. With the world's tallest building just a stone throw away, I'd really like to see how a 300-metre tower could steal the show. Imagine looking at Burj Khalifa, turning your head, seeing the impressive towers of Fountain Views, looking behind those again and then finding the tower that makes you go "WOW!", even though it's not even among the 15 tallest buildings in sight.

And if it's just an acronym... well, it's still a 300 metre-tall building (at least). I'm not complaining!

Could this be it? Could this be the long awaited render of it! Its use and number of floors (70F+) are quite very close to the description we got!

The BB District Hotel & Serviced Apartments is located in a prime plot of land surrounded by parkland, an artificial lake and overlooking the newly formed lagoon at Business bay. With a plot size of 7,450sqm and unlimited GFA, the tower will accommodate 700 residential units with a total BUA of 175,000sqm.

Now That Architecture fits the Name of the Tower and Hotel chain. Fantastic crown and tower that gives me Lord of the rings and Star wars wibes at the same time
