I know. But it could be possible that there was already a name for it, isn't it?

I guess it must vary from building to building but could someone provide an educated guess as to when this might start construction? Are we looking at fairly quick about 2 years or more like 8-10 years?

NoW i got It !!


I saw the last design on the Dubai's thread and I did not recall seeing it before . So the DIFC will have at least 5 supertalls ( correct me if i m wrong) and by far this is the best proposal so far .!!

I think 2 years start is about right

Thank you I hope it is about 2 years I really like this design and it will be great to watch it get built and see it completed.

1. Nice, but this Design should placed at SZR, then 70/100

2. No comment, it´s too ugly for the UAE 0/100


3. nice Design, especially the 4-Foots of the Towerdesign
are great, the Site Location is made for some
spectacular Tower like this, i love those colourful
Illumination. 95/100


4. Not very bad, not very good 50/100


5. Great Design, but the both Towers should have the
same Height and add two or 3 mor Connections
between the Towers, then i rate it a full 100/100

JUST ACCROSS THE STREET!!!






17.07.08 - ALEC awarded DIFC contract

The design and construct contract for a mixed use development in the Dubai International Finance Centre has been awarded to ALEC by our partner Al Jaber on the 17th of July.

#1 Park Avenue is a 400m+ mixed use high rise development comprising commercial, residential and a 5+ Star hotel with retail/F&B throughout. The operator of the 5 Star hotel is yet to be announced and will be located in the upper portion of the building. The lower podium areas will contain numerous retail and F&B outlets which will be accessible via bridge connections from the surrounding area.

Bulk earth works will begin in November 2008 and structure is planned to start by January 2010. Total site area is 18,381m2 and project GFA is approximately 285,000m2. Project completion is being targeted for mid 2013.
