Yes, it seems also a little bit isolated from the actual city center. At least here from a distance. How do the Dubai people think about it?

True of Canary Wharf also. It is about 6 miles away from the traditional City of London skyscrapers. In Dubai you have a third cluster - the Business Bay.

Emirates and Marriot sign deal for luxury Hotel

Marriott has been appointed operator of the Park Towers, a 1,614-room twin-tower hotel and apartment property, which Emirates is currently constructing on Sheikh Zayed Road, next to to Dubai’s Business Bay district.

Under Marriott management, the property will be branded as one of the top-of-the-range JW Marriott Marquis luxury hotels.

This will include two guest room towers rising from a six-story building housing lobby and public space. The first 807-room tower is scheduled to open in 2011 and the second tower in 2013.

You really have to indentify where is City center in Dubai. Is it Dubai creek and Deira? or SZR north? or is it Burj Dubai area? that if we execlude the marina area as its part of the new Dubai, which maybe in my opinion should be the DT area for Dubai!

No difference yet between the construction of both towers but I wonder why they will split up the construction process..

But thanks for the news however, sounds good!

The number 39 refers to the number of regular floors that are located above the Ground, Mezzanine and Podium levels.

So does this mean there will be 77 floors not including the podium at completion? !
for example 77+8= 85
or its just a method of counting repeated floors?

There are no repeated floors. 77 is the total number of above-ground floors.
