Check out this by DubaiLover. He just visited this new area where they're building loads of low-cost midrise appartment buildings. According to him this will definitely not become a very nice area of Dubai. Nevertheless it is needed:

Come on guys, post something for a change.

Remember that tower I posted as a proposal?
Well, now we have a good bit more info and better renders. Looks damn good I'd say.

Sheikh Hasher Tower, 62F on SZR. My estimate is around 260 to 280m.

I really like the massing and the structural design, but I'd like to see better renders to get an idea of what materials will be used for the facade.

Unnamed Building, 15F




Al Habshi Building, 16F

Another proposal:

-------------------------------------------

Soon I'm going to do a major update of this thread. There are a lot of renders in the 1st post that are either too small, out of date, or we just have better ones. Since I think this thread is a good source of info I might aswell have the best render for each tower.

Lots of new stuff to be announced today and probably tomorrow aswell. Check the UAE section. I'll post it up later on today.


BTW the al fattan twins in the marina are complete. Any chance someone could create a thread for them in the rate our talls section? For some reason I'm not privilaged enough to do so
