seriously though how?

That power satation and stuff is huge, and a serious eye soar! Unless they remove the entire station wich isnt going to happen soon if at all al burj is going to be down wind of all that polution like in previous picture, the view would be shit. It dosnt make sense building it there.

They have the entire desert why would they build it next to an industrial site??

You build prestigious things near water or on the water, that's why all the off-shore or waterfront (both natural and artificial) developments in Dubai.

Last year I heard the first gossip about this and I was laughing when somebody told me that the power station will be removing and coming Dubai Marina 2 in that place.

And this year again when one of my friend wanted to buy an apartment of the KG Tower and the real estate agent offered the power station view because the price is cheap and just need time because Dubai Marina 2 coming soon

This is billions of dollars but in Dubai money is never problem

.. of course that after the investor completes Dubai Marina and has no space to build near the water ..it will turn theyr eyes towards Dubai Marina 2 and of couse the plans for this location will be much bigger ..because they've got tired of building 300m tall ..they plan to go heigher than ever

What Dohat Jumeirah? That area isn't Jumeirah to begin with and secondly that project is just a boring concept of things already done.

Forget it, not Dohat Jumeirah in here.

That the tower will be built is a fact that comes day by day. I am very curious how the new design will look. Hopefoly a better design not so bolt as the old design, more refined.

2 renders by me showing new location. I just made up a tower as a placeholder, here it's 1050m to roof.



As viewed from the palm jumeirah trunk.




And another one from the atlantis hotel

Is this photo zoomed in or is it really that close to the Dubai Marina?

Because I always assumed its something like 10 or 15km between them, at least maps make it look that way.
