DUBAI | Vida Zaabeel | 300m+ x 2 | 984ft+ x 2 | 80 fl+ x 2 | App

Another supertall for Dubai, eh? Posting it here based on the pictures of it next to One Zaabe'el and the number of floors I managed to count.

good to see the skyline continuing eastwards as well. It's a good company for the other Zaabel twins that just started as well

I'll just stick head out for the shooting gallery and ask what everyone is likely thinking: What the hell does "Vida Zaabeel" mean? XD

Not that difficult, VIDA is the brand and Zaabeel is the area

A project proposed right next to it, unknown height. Nice, simple office tower shape, but unfortunately with a colour pattern with all the colours of gastroenteritis.

Dubai is like a ton of office parks all near each other calling themselves as a whole a city. I have no idea why with a blank slate and endless possibilities they made a mess of a road system and a bunch of office parks like this. They could have built the greatest city in the world by learning from every city and applying the best parts of each. Instead its like they applied the worst parts of each and then built one amazing tower in the middle. Blows my mind. The roads are horrible and there is no rhyme or reason to them. They could have built a grid system of roads but found a way to make it interesting and they also could have made the buildings have incredible ground floors with lots of retail vs parking garages everywhere. The parking garages really ruin the city. This place is a mess and once the hype dies and another oasis in the desert is built I dont think many people are going to care. New York already saw the amount of supertalls they were building here and not to be outdone have absolutely smoked Dubai on quality and now even quantity. Saudi Arabia has the next chance now to not mess it up and hopefully they learn from the mistakes here and make a real city and not another mess of office parks with no transit and a horrible road system. Any other oil rich city can blow Dubai out of the water if they just make better roads, non ugly architecture, and hide the parking garages better. Its no that hard and once someone else does this place is going to fade into obscurity.
