Seems very official on their website... And why say their site is so bad? Only thing that worries me is the vast gap between their completed and current project

Hope it gets completed! Anyone know its specific location?

We know only roughly,

... but thinking of it, this picture:

[img]http://i7.************/21e6u8o.jpg[/img]


might suggest (I repeat: it might) that the location can be the one where the arrow point at, on the SZR map below:

[IMG]http://i24.************/34h6iq1.jpg[/IMG]

If that will be true, then it will be located just next to Emirates Hotel Towers of 2 x 395 meters (on the huge L-shapped plot in yellow)


Green boxes: Completed towers
Yellow boxes: Towers under construction
White boxes: Empty plots

Maybe never. Just a tip: for the threads that say "Pro" at the end of them, the answer to "when is this going to be built" is always "I don't know".

Well you'll have to be content with wondering because there is never a timetable for buildings before they have been approved.

Wow... one of the most futuristic designs I've seen so far. Awesome..!

PS: Sorry for my ignorance; but what the difference between a proposal and a vision?

Vision is usually a fantasy rendering of a building which probably won't be built.

Proposal is a building which is pending approval to be built.

That's Dubai for you. But most of these projects never get built or are in the on-hold stage as is the case with the Burj Al Alam and Infinity Tower. I cross my fingers this one gets through, I love the odd but nonetheless Cigar form.

Um...this project is not the least bit new. In fact, it's so old that there's a good chance that it is a "dead" project.
