Its 340m with antenna, and it is going to be launch soon. The prelaunch ads are so cool they made the environment like a futuristic city

To build towers in BB there is a limitation for number of floors and height. But still their location is very unique and the design is not bad so far.

I heard www.the-skyscraper.com will be up soon so we can get more information

Huh? Isn't the burj al alam the tallest at 484m?

I suppose "the skyscraper" is completely commercial while burj al alam has a decent-sized hotel portion

Another boring, boring tower. 300 metres... pshhh.

i could build a bigger tower with one hand behind my back, and damac as my backers



... on the otherhand... more glass!!!

dubai is becoming 'the glass city'.

its nice, tall and understated. id prefer the curvey sticky outy bit to be angular. but it will do.

great work on naming it

Maybe they should have called it "The Commercial Skyscraper" then.

Actually this tower might be a bit bland and soulless but it does soar well, at least in the 3D model it gives this impression

It is more like a german architecture, plain, simple and professional, specially when its for commercial purpose.

Nice tower..horrible name.

First Dubai builds 'The Tower.' Then 'The Skyscraper.' Only think left is 'The Building.'
