The thing is its fake. Everybody is just sooo pleased with Dubai and all it is is a reallly hot sandy place with engineering experiments all over it. I mean, I think some of it is cool too, but there are so many other places that are A LOT more legit. Making one road with 250 skyscrapers on it doesnt make a country ( thats really all it is)....not even a city. Similar to Vegas and thats not really a complement.

however i really like this tower. creative yet efficient.

A little harsh. But everyone is entitled to their opinion. But I do agree with some of the critisms against Dubai.

The main thing I worry about for Dubai, is that whenever you have a really hot market, they will ALWAYS cool down. At some point Dubai is going to have a serious slowdown. That's just the unfortunate way capitalism works. Some day in the future, six months or six years, who knows, it's going to halt. I just hope Dubai can weather the day when it arrives.

It really isn't similar at all to Las Vegas. How is it similar? Just saying something doesn't make it true.

Well, because the basis of dubai is a long road (vegas strip) that has highrises on both sides. They are both almost completely dominated by outside investment and both are tourist traps. imo thats pretty similar. i was harsh though. I respect dubai

Great news !!!

New height is 510 m!!!!

Burj Al Alam contractor to be named in two months


The main contractor for the Dh4billion Burj al Alam project will be announced within the next two months and work is scheduled to start by January 2009, says the developer.

Meanwhile the height of the structure has been increased to 510m.

The Fortune Group project was launched in 2006 with a planned height of 482m, which was later revised to 501m.

Business Development Director Najia Mahboob denied rumours the project was on hold and said construction would be completed by the end of 2011. The project was originally scheduled for completion by 2009.

"We are a bit delayed," Mahboob told Emirates Business. "The site was handed over to us by Dubai Properties eight months late – they wanted to remove a camel track that went along the site."

Meanwhile the piling and shoring work, which started a year ago, is nearing completion. "The piling work is being done by MEPS. It is a plot area of 300,000 sq ft and one of the biggest piling operations in the region. The design and structural approvals have been obtained from the authorities and soil investigation is complete.

"There has been a slight change in the design. The height of the structure has been increased to 510m and plans to build a helipad on top have been scrapped."

Fortune Group was earlier reported to be negotiating with three contractors for the main contract.

Arabtec yesterday said it had pulled out of the bidding to build Dubai's second tallest building.

Mahboob said Arabtec was not chosen because of several factors including the pricing. "They were firstly very expensive," she added. "We also decided not to go with them because of the resources and the time period. We wanted the project to be complete by the end of 2011."

But she refused to reveal the names of the contractors still in the bidding, but said both were international companies with projects in the UAE.

The Burj Al Alam tower building will features a crown with a sky garden, club facilities and spa. The designs include a full curtain wall system with three external curtain wall "petals".

P.S change title to 510m
