I hope Dubai builds a 1,500 meter tower to surpass Jeddah, that would be nice I heard the Meraas Tower may actually be developed, that would be awesome it was planned to rise to 112 floors 600 meters and was designed by Adrian Smith.

Another reason for Dubai in particular is that the buildings had drawings up until yesterday I think, but the drawings were now removed from primary because they all had a wrong height and/or design. That way they were not popping up in the "buildings that need to be drawn" section, because they featured a drawing.
That are very good infos!
I know this side for years, but never had taken a research for missing buildings. Or reasons for that.
I'm glad this source even exists

Meraas Tower is a very old proposals. I thought it was cancelled all together and gone for good, since it fell with the big wave of cancellations (as nakheel tower). If it gets rolled up again, I am sure the design may change.

here is the old thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=723622

Yes your correct about that whole cancellation that happend at once, Nakheel, Meraas, One Park Avenue and possibly even 1 dubai. It was a shame that project was cancelled. If I was the developer I would really consider developing that project it would be the new center piece of dubai.

I completely agree Gabriel900, its so sad Jumeirah Gardens was not built hopefully and awesome new master plan like that will be built in the years closer to expo 2020. There going to be a huge building boom I just hope it will include skyscrapers

Amazing shot, DubaiM! What's that set of banners / flags chaining off of Princess Tower? Seems like either just an optical effect from the long exposure or something else.
