Another Tower to Rival Burj Dubai

From: Tradearabia.com:

Another Dubai tower to cross 700m height
Posted: Wednesday, December 07, 2005

Dubai developer Nakheel's Al Burj tower, proposed to be built in Dubai Waterfront, is expected to rival Burj Dubai, claimed to be the tallest tower in the world, now under construction.

Burj Dubai is being developed by another prominent Dubai builder Emaar Properties.

Al Burj, initially planned to be developed on the Palm Jumeirah's trunk, was later shifted to the Dubai Waterfront. Both are Nakheel's projects. However, the final height of both the towers remain a secret.

"At the moment, I can only say that Al Burj will be at least 700 metres tall and one of the tallest towers in the world," Robert Lee, Nakheel's director for development, was quoted as saying by a Gulf News report.

"Al Burj will be a mixed-use project with a combination of offices and residences. We are currently working on its design." Construction officials are certain that it will be higher than Burj Dubai, the report said.

"I can't imagine anyone spending so much money to raise it up to 700 metres and not make it the tallest tower. It would be foolish of any developer not to stretch further to make it the tallest one in the world," said an official of a large contracting company.

Yep, no one had done it yet, so I figured it would be a good idea.

"I counted the amout of storys of the tower Its about 180."

The renderings are likely not the final design anyway... they will most likely be changing the design during construction.
