Growing steadily... Too bad it's situated next to a landmark tower like the dusit. Will look more average than it is...!

Nice progress, 3 floors in 2 weeks, that's pretty fast.

Everyone is saying its 300+m but it shows on Emprios.com that its 291m and on Skyscpraperpage.com is 300m only? which one is more reliable you think?

That 291 m on Emporis is a complete different (Hotel) tower, proposed for the opposite side of SZR, as for skyscraperpage ... since when that is where infos on Dubai's projects have to be found (except Burj Dubai maybe).

SZR is really going up like crazy. I mean just count how many 300+ building in that same street!
Those are only the built and underconstruction ones:
1) Emirates tower 1
2) Emirates tower2
3) Rose Tower
4) The Index
5) Yaqoub Tower
6) Al Attar Khaled
7) Al Attar Ahmed
8) HHHR Tower
9) Emirates Park Tower 1
10) Emirates Park Tower 2


I think not only there is no other street in the world have that many of supertalls, but not even a whole city has that many. Am I wrong?!

saeed you are absolutely 100% right......only in this street there will be more supertalls than in any other city......

If i count right Dubai has the potential to have more than 50 supertalls by 2015.

That street could easily be portrayed as the future in a sci-fi movie for people who hadn't seen it before... it's just insane. Ah well. It's only the small beginning of the coolest CBD in the world.

It has already happened. First it was Code 46 with Tim Robbins and then the Emirates Office Tower on that movie (forgot the title) directed by the Buffy's creator.

probably they will make Entrapment part II with Anthony hopkins and cathrina zeta jones featuring Burj Dubai. They shot the first movie in the petronas twin towers in Malasyia cause they were the tallest in the world at the time.
