This building looks quite similar to Q1, but it doesn't matter anymore...

Yes, it is the twin. And the height of 284 should go to the top out section.

This is the first time I saw a render that just is pretty simple in Dubai. Excellent location though.

It's actually being created by the same developer as Q1 and it to be a sister tower. The website originally said 350m but now it says 284m.

I like the model, it stand out good amongst the lower buildings. Wel see if it gets built aongst lower ones in reality. What a view that would be, a true eyecatcher.

the model with spire is actually Q1 on the Gold Coast, Australia, which is currently worlds tallest resi towe at 322m to spire (275m fin). the D1 i assure you is 350m to top of fin. there wont be any spire.
The reason why it looks like Q1 is because the developer visited Q1 last year and said he wanted same design, literally!!!

Q1

Are you sure it's 350m? That's what it said some months ago but the official website now says 284m, which makes sense considering it has the same amount of floors as Q1

oh, it was 350m .now 284m? sounds right. Q1 has 78floors to 250m roof.
if D1 is 284m,this thread has to be moved to highrise.
