not yet
all we know is km properties will build another tower of this size in a new project to be launched this year, called west jumeirah beach
about same size, height and dimensions than park square tower

so, be prepared for another 150 storey, 600m+ tower
nakheel is very serious with it's 200+ floors, about 1km tall al burj on dubai waterfront
fortune group will develop a 101 floor tower in the marina, not yet launched
there is another tower of 111 floors proposed, which could be the fortune 101! because the companies (architect & developer) worked together many times already and have towers coming up here!!!!

then rumours about a supertall in business bay
rumours about a supertall developed by a saudi group

anyway, we only have to take 5 towers serious right now
burj dubai
park square tower
al burj
west jumeirah beach tower
fortune 101

Yep it's huge alright - but compare that to the 90,000,000 sqm of offices London is projected to have to build by 2015. Thats about 45 of this Park Square Tower, (Obviously they wont be 700m tall however )

Umm, does that include all of the offices built in London over the last 1000 odd years

Crazy that there suddenly can be demand for so many hotel rooms! Strange that all these hotels that were built the latest years cannot be enough, Dubai must really be booming. Anyway, we should be glad to see another such a tall tower, but only if the design is great.

That's misleading info .. it is the same number but in sqft and that's the total area. The base area would be 25,000 sqft.

I can't wait to see the Dubai skyline after all these buildings are built!! I know that everyone wishes they were being built in their city, but we should all be happy that these are being built somewhere. It definitely makes the world a more interesting place. Although I'm not in Dubai, I'm sure glad I live in Chi-town right now!!

@ Fahed..he's not being contradicting...he's expressing excitement about Dubai, but also saying at least he lives in a city that has some great skyscrapers as well. I noticed that there are some very positive and negative chicago forumers. He's one of the positive ones!

I hope it looks good. With all the money behind the project, you'd think it look marvelous.

Yet there's Al Burj, a piece of junk that is beyond ugly.

What!!!!!!!!...LoL...how can u say such a thing...it's not the most beautiful building in the world...but i do think it's nice.

On the Dubai waterfront video on the website( http://www.thedubaiwaterfront.com/ ), it looks great as they show the cars approaching the lobby. The inner part of the tower looks amazing! Ofcourse it's not as nice as BD.

5.5m visitors to Dubai in 2004.

Niagara Falls gets around 15 million visitors a year, accomodated in a bunch of motels with heart-shaped beds (and there's a paltry proposal for a 50 storey hotel on the books).

Dubai overbuilding? Naw. It all makes sense until the correction. It will be fun to see the desert reclaim the remains, and hear the bravado echoing hopelessly in the hot, dry wind.

What goes around....

I like this one better than Burj Dubai. I so hope that this really gets built. It's one of the most beautiful buildings I've ever seen. This could easily be my favorite building.
