Thank goodness I can watch these go up everyday from my terrace as apposed to living in them
Yup. Who's the idiot at emaar that decided to lift height limits on about 20 plots right next to each other? Why couldn't they spread the talls around the marina, maybe clustering 2 or 3 at a time in places. That way more people get nice views and a whole load of other problems don't arise.

Look at this:




This tower should be in place of the trident tower and might take up 2 plots, who knows.

Well, there are definitely a lot of people in the Arab world who can afford something like this. The only thing is that it's location is not great, many views will be blocked by surrounding 300m and 400m towers and also isn't that close to the marina.

Apparently there could be more than one tower

Hope this is true... twin 516m towers

hey guys how u doin?
just got fresh news from a mate whose uncle is a consultant at trident.these will infact be 2 towers 516 meters each fused together using a unique technology creating one single tower.so these are basically 2 X 120 floor towers fused together an analog to this concept would be the W16 engine of the bugatti veyron where to V8's are fused in unison.
i also found this news artcile in boomberg:

Trident Will Build World's Tallest Residential Tower in Dubai

March 13 (Bloomberg) -- Construction of the world's tallest residential tower will start in Dubai by the end of the year, with the 160 apartments each selling for a minimum of $2.4 million.

The 516 meter-building (1,693 feet) will have two 120-storey towers, with a total of 160 apartments. Each apartment, known as a pentominium will occupy at least one floor and will have at least 6,500 square feet of space, closely held Trident International Holdings said today at the MIPIM real estate conference in Cannes, France.

Well... if fusion is involved as well... things are starting to make sense.

I agree a million times over, who was the idiot to do such poor planning, of course the final result will still look stunning but it could have been even better if they took these super talls and put them in clusters like u said malec.

Thing is, I don't think anyone expected this. When they lifted the height limits a few years ago who would have thought every developer would want to build 300, 400 and now 500m towers?
