Great night time render above. Very Hot
But does anyone feel that maybe these towers need to be a bit taller? Being the centerpiece and focal point of Business Bay n' all. I dunno, its just this feeling i have. Then again, maybe all the surrounding towers will be around the 100m range so i suppose it will stand out quite nicely.

What are your thoughts?

I know not many people will agree with me, but:

I think that height does not make a building a centrepiece of any area. What does that is the architecture and/or beauty of the building. Also, do not forget that Burj Al Alam will be taller and may be more of a focal point.

I really wonder if two of the towers support each other at the top. Then they would only be considered as one freestanding building by the CTBUH, like the CCTV in Beijing.

As we believe ChangduHero, they didn't start the details of the design yet. That means maybe already the start of ground works and piling, but no construction yet (for the next three months if we believe him).

Dubai sure looks like one big construction zone. The outcome will surely be phenomenal though.

Local developer Dubai Properties has invited at least three companies to submit first stage bids by 12 October for the contract to build its Signature Towers project at Business Bay.

The invited companies include the local Al-Habtoor Engineering Enterprises in a joint venture with South Africa's Murray & Roberts Contractors (Middle East), the local Arabtec Construction, and the local/Belgian Bel Hasa Six Construct.

The project, formerly known as the Dancing Towers, involves the construction of three mixed-use towers with a shared podium. The development will also include a new stock exchange building for the Dubai Financial Market.

The UK's Mace International is the project manager. UK-based Zaha Hadid is the architect (MEED 23:4:08).
