DUBAI | Dubai Towers | 360-550m | 57-94 fl | On Hold

Sama Dubai, international property development and investment arm of Dubai Holding, announced the Dubai Towers-Dubai, a group of towers with unique design reflecting the movement of the candle flame, at The Lagoons Central Business District. The towers range from 57 to 94 floors and expected to be completed by 2010.

Farhan Faraidooni, CEO, Sama Dubai, said: “Symbolizing hope, growth, harmony and opportunity, Dubai Towers–Dubai, represents a unique investment opportunity for those seeking a corporate lifestyle experience combined with peace and tranquility in the seven beautifully landscaped islands of The Lagoons.”

Dubai Towers-Dubai will be visible from a distance as the prime attraction and feature of The Lagoon skyline. The Lagoons is a mixed-use freehold development being built along the Dubai Creek coastline. The Dubai Towers-Dubai will be exhibited at the Cityscape Dubai, 2006.

I love this, looks like flames dancing, and I love how well they are integrated to the rest of the towers in the back, those towers are are also interesting, but somehow keep from taking the spotlight from the 4 flames, but, also, when you look at them, the flames don't jump at your face to stop you from appreciating the background towers.

Great job Dubai
Who is the architect?

expect it to be over 500m probably. also from the supersize rendering it seems the tallest one has actually more than 100F.




these look so stunning. and only some 3km from the Dancing towers..
