I just hope all these new towers that were proposed in the last days will actually be supertalls.... it's a close call for most of them.

Most of them?!?!? The only one that is a close call is wow hotel the rest are definite supertalls. I spoke to an Emaar agent he said this one will be wayyy taller than Opera grand but he doesn't have an exact number.

Make a map with all the supertalls you made threads about recently (except the Marina one, that would pointlessly stretch the map, all others are relatively close to each other.)

Yes, I don't say "please." Obey!

Hey when did I become your slave? (and why is this turning me on)

On another note, This tower might have a height around 400m since the The Address Residences Dubai Opera Tower 2 nearby is around 260m high!
Its twin located on the opposite side looks like a Supertall as well .. And I believe it will be as well launched this year

Yeah, but most of those at a lateral angle, meaning the twin tower is not much further from the "observer" in the render than Burj Khalifa. Not saying can't be a supertall, just saying close call.

Yeah but the small tower to its right is supposedly 65F which is directly next to it and according to some sites it will be 260m so this put this tower way above 300m .. anyways we will see , time will clarify this.

"Emaar Properties has unveiled a new residential tower in The Opera District, IL PRIMO consists of 4 and 5-bedroom penthouses. IL PRIMO is the closest residential tower to the fountain and Burj Khalifa"

This tower is a "Pentominium" which means floor to ceiling height won't be like any regular residential building it is a supertall no doubt. The tower is really slim as well

Well, if it has the exact same average floor height as the actual Pentominium, we'd be at 325.67m.

Wow, if they execute the cladding exactly like it's shown in the renders, it could turn out to be absolutely gorgeous!!

Bigger render and using the roof width of the opera house which is a known fact of 77m (Thank you Google Earth) this tower will be 402m high! As I said earlier, I bet on it this tower will scratch the 400m mark

Well here's a map I threw together just to showcase the intensity of supertalls that we know of around Downtown:

Red is for completed supertalls, Blue is for U/C or Prep supertalls, Green is for approved supertalls. I hope this helps

PS: there is way more but they aren't approved yet so its useless to add them here.





One another note: if all supertalls construction went without any hiccup in Dubai, and we already now got 21 in total, after 10 years from now this number will likely double with Dubai scoring around 40 if not more!!!!!
