Bikes, I just went to your site and saw you already added this render.

There's one you forgot though and it's an important one since it's the first one showing it with its increased height.

Believe that is Estalat(sp?) Tower

The thread in the U.A.E section is here. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=103265

It's an ok tower I think, there are much nicer ones going up in Dubai though.

it is etisalat tower 2

looks good and unusual but not a real stunner,
it will feature a golf ball on top.


i have to say the new Burj dubai render looks amazing. really perfect proportions.

What will be inside this golf ball? A counterweight? A penthouse? A bearded lady? If you say "nothing" I know you're lying!

Well dubaiflo, I believe there is going to be more than 160 floors. It could go to 190 or more. Nobody outside them knows for sure.
