It's hard to believe that this tower is gonna be a 1000ft-er since it's one of the "shorter" buildings going up in Dubai. Hell this building would be the crowning jewel of cities like Houston or Los Angeles of they were built there.

Great pictures AltinD and malec.

OK, i was looking through Dubai mega projects. and i was looking at the Burj Dubai Lake Hotel. and i noticed on the page it said this "The whole complex will also include five more supertall towers approved over the height of 300m, and another 9 supertalls awaiting approval in the same block!" what 5 more super tall's will be in side of the Burj Dubai complex over 300M?? here's the link http://www.dubaimegaprojects.com/bur...ake_hotel.html

He kind of changed subjects in the middle of what he was saying. The block he is talking about is the supertall block at the Dubai Marina. I guess since he mentioned Marina101 he decided he had to talk about the block that it was a part of.

52ne floor=195m
55th floor=210m
60th floor (roof)=230m
fin=270m
spires=306m (1000ft)

width of typical floor plate-91m/300ft
current height- approx 100m to core.
