DUBAI | HHHR Tower | 317m | 72 fl | Com

The height is not known but comparing to the surrounding buildings it should break 300m.

It's actually just a code name for the project, based on the name of the owner: His Highness (Sheikh) Hamdan, which is the deputy ruler of Dubai and UAE's minister of economy.

Of course we had a thread and Stephan23 created it even before the reorganisation of the forum. Imre was posting updates and Culwulla even posted the render for the first design.

I think the thread even went to 3 pages (more then 50 posts), but I'm sure it was deleted as many others lately.

So! No problemo!

It's a very, I dunno...."mechanical-looking" thing. Best way I can describe. The blue glass is probably looking or going to look good.

BTW An article I found on it: HERE

Culwulla used the OLD design for his calculation and diagram.
