Dear Dubai,

I'll be straightforward, can you donate at least one tower for my city?
Thanks...

(wish it was as easy as that!)

Towers like that need to be built in the U.S. We have too many boxed structures.

Pray the park west tower goes ahead. Parkwest, Burj Dubai, Unknown tower and this. Crazy in the one area.

I dunno, they're giving towers to Doha and Istanbul. Surely more will follow?

I love this tower by the way. All the proposals for Business Bay seem to be stunning, it's going to be a gorgeous area when complete.

With 101 floors it will rarely be taller than Burj Dubai if built.
Nice flowerlike design.
Is there any chance that this can actually could get built?

There's no way this will be taller than burj dubai Nightsky. It has only 101 floors so it should be around 440m or so. BTW could you draw a diagram of this for skyscraperpage?

Nobody ever said it would be the tallest in the world. The chances of this getting built are quite high I would say

This project by DIMENSION group is floa ting around since long time and some months ago, The Business bay developer auctioned 8 plots with unlimited height so I see no reason to see this as just "another proposal".

You know, looking at it, it reminds me of Al Sharq with a waist.

But this is much more. It's got its own website, and aswell it's mentioned on the fortune website as a future project.
