I visited Cairo City in Egypt last week, I noticed that they have all these innercity highways running long deep in the city. But to be franlky honest, too many cars and people and traffic in the city, you cannot tell if its really a good or a bad idea!
But maybe because Dubai population is very small comparing with those kind of cities, thus this might be a great traffic releif!

Holy Shit, these towers are going to be topped out quite high!! Nice!!!

I dont mean to sound like a broken record, but...

Are these heights set in stone? I would love to look up from the base of the main "flame" tower.. its one thing to look up to the top of a 550m tower, and its completely different to look up to the top on these!!

Think so, if emporis says yes, it is so!!! They need a good source to place the heights in their list. Because of this I asked them and got the answer which you can read the site before!!

If someone know someone at Atlanta's TVS Architects, can ask for confirmation.

Emporis may also be wrong, so it is too soon for some parties until we get it confirmed by a reasonable source or if it will be officialy released.

Maybe the construction start soon!! The landscaping is very far in my eyes!! And the middle circle could be for these towers here!
Hope construction start end of the year.

Again: Emporis database can only add towers/heights/other infos because of a believable source.

I have my doubts too, but I want to believe it!!!!!!!

I find it hard to believe that the tallest has only 94 floors, especially considering the height. From the render it looks like the full height (including the very top part) takes up the space of about 125 floors.

I have seen the huge model closely and the top cones are unusable roof features, however the number 94 might refer to the regular floors, not including mechanical ones ... or simply more were added.

And it wouldn't be their first time being wrong either!

I was having doubts of the main tower being 550m, but after looking at it more closely, it really does seem like it could be in that height range, if not a little more.

Standing at the base of this, may give you the effect that the building is falling on you!

How can you compare Dubai to Las Vegas? there is no comparison! Only cause they are both built in the desert doesnt mean anything. Dubai pwns vegas not only in construction but in education ect. The only thing vegas is famous for is casinos and a couple of buildings... f*ck vegas! Dubai for life!
