If all of these recent projects (Anara, Lighthouse, 1PA, 1Dubai, Pentominium, etc.) get realized, this is gonna be one mind blowing site. Imagine cruising into the city from the desert freeway during sunset.

Anara and Pentominium are nowhere near the other towers you mentioned.

"Nowhere near" seems like a bit of an overstatement.

Well 20km away. More than enough to not be part of the skyline at all.

Gee you're right! I saw this photo and forgot that it can't be the "main block" of Sheik Zayed Road to the right

I hope you aren't being sarcastic, because those buildings are indeed definitely not the "main block" on SZR, nor are they anywhere near them.

Selected contractors have been invited to bid by 19 January for the contract to build the Lighthouse tower at Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC).

The prospective bidders include the local/UK Al-Naboodah Laing O'Rourke, Lebanon's Arabian Construction Company (ACC), the local Arabtec Construction, the local/UK Dutco Balfour Beatty, and the local/Australian Nasa Multiplex.

The contract involves the construction of a 320-metre high office tower with a gross floor area of 90,000 square metres.

The tower has been designed to reduce its energy consumption by up to 65 per cent and water consumption by up to 40 per cent.

This will be achieved by using devices such as awnings, a series of low energy and low water solutions and recovery strategies for the energy and water used.

The building will also feature integrated renewable energy sources, including wind turbines and 4,000 solar panels (MEED 27:04:07).

The client is the DIFC Authority.
