1001m Tower?

At risk of being mocked for my ignorance, does anyone here know anything about a cone-shaped tower being proposed, which might be 1001m high? I don't even know where it is, but the pictures look like Dubai or somewhere in the middle east.

I'm a structural engineer at one of Arup's offices in London and spotted some drawings which raised my interest. But I'm working on another job...twin 350m towers for Seoul. My office has done the structural design for many interesting buildings such as Guangzhou Tower and The Gherkin, as well as some big ones in Moscow, Dubai, Korea and Hong Kong.

With this conical tower, I'm either way behind or way ahead of this forum. Would be interested to know which, as the design looks like it is being progressed in a serious manner. The elevations clearly show 1001m to the tip.

Well if it is dubai, it could be either an older concept design for Burj Dubai, it could well be the Tall Tower (aka "Al-Burj) which is now supposed to be 1050m tall or it could be something we don't know off here. (Like a project called "Burj Zayed" which is supposed to be at the Creek area in Dubai.

Would you be so kind and post it or make a rough drawing of it?

I doubt Murbarak is Conical in shape and in Dubai.


I remember about 3 megatall building that was supposed to be build in the district of Dubai, one is BD, one is Burj Alam. Could this be the third one?



Or maybe its a SECRET PROJECT

That's the habtoor tower which is probably cancelled. It looked like it was around 550m.
A 1001m conical tower? I've never heard of it. It sounds like a version of millenium tower though

It could have possibly been the old Noida, India tower design that was very futuristic looking. That one had tons of cones and such.

Glad to see the thread cleaned up. I saw it during the middle of last night and wanted to wipe out the last two full pages of horrible posts. Thanks!

Sweet mother of mine!
I will visit Dubai with my family and experience this beauty in the works..
this layout reminds me so much of Manhattan but with steroids and the Burj like the Empire..and behind it with no development reminds me of Central Park!

i dont think they make less money because i download the programs, most people cant afford them anyway..

Indeed, but it contrast between the cold colors of the BD and the warm colors of the old town is beautifull. The reflection in the lake is also great. The city planners and the architects did a great job.
