This tower is so impressive. I think it is by far the best design in Dubai.

Actually, that's too expensive for Dubai...Dubai is not London, New York, Hong Kong or Sydney.....

Please don't take this the wrong way but I have a question...is it Dubai's intention to hold every height record in every building category without contest ?

Probably, but with this tower since this one's being built by a private developer who above all else would want to boost their own name rather than the city.

Hahaha yeah, that's hilarious... why would they make a rendering of this building and put it in L.A.? So weird.

I think its called marketing.

If this tower is shown in a magazine or portfolio in a city in the middle east, investors will simply dismiss it as high risk and not bother to look into it further. Whereas if its placed in an American City, even if this is not true, there is a much better chance that more information will be sought.

Its also convenient that developers like to use buildings from al over the world in renders. I suppose it has to do with the familiarity of the render to the viewers eye or their wanting to compare their design to the same lvl of prestige as the featured towers.

Actually that's not quite right. It's typical to release renders of a building placed in a different skyline, or surrounded by buildings from a bunch of different cities. I think the reason for this is that they don't want to advertise for the competition's buildings. If they made a render of it surrounded by the buildings that will someday surround it, they would be including renders of buildings in direct competition to this one. On the other hand, if they show it where it will be going, but surrounded by no buildings, it would look stupid just standing out like a sore thumb. So an easy solution is to render it into a far away skyline.

Luxury property in Dubai is far far cheaper than in the "big 3"
