So much in the newspaper about these rotating towers, now look at them. I don't think it's possible let alone feasible to build these types of buildings.

There really needs to be something between Infinity Tower and Emarate Marina, so I'm really glad that there is finally some progress. But is the height going to stay the same? Lowering it to 70 floors from 100 would lead me to believe that the height was also lowered. After all, that is a huge difference. So does anybody know if the height has been changed as well? For it to stick out between its neighboring skyscrapers, it needs to maintain its height!

How can you say that? Damac heights is awesome!!!!!!! Even at 70 floors, this will most likely be over 1000ft. Not to mention, the design is still incredible!

Finally! But what is that final render? Have they realeased a final height, or floor countage? And if this is back under construction, then somebody should change the tread title.

Changed to PREP for now so remains here but when full piling starts (and not just testing) then I'll move it to the construction section

30 floors less is a lot of height. Even if the same thing was done, the design will look a lot different. It could end up looking very out of proportion to the design with about 300 ft taken off. Also, that means some budget adjustments which could mean other bad things...even in design adjustments.
