I really like this design. Classic, yet progressive. Though I'm not able to pinpoint the location - would anyone care to point it out on a map?

Looks great. I love the Q1 in Australia, so I don't mind this one so much.

Superb, another nice tall one for Dubai.
It's not so common that a design prototype is shown so frankly like here with the announced Q1/S1-sisterhood. Maybe the investors try to bring a little bit of Gold Coast livestyle to Dubai?

Although it doesn't look like a cheap rip-off, e.g. considering the sleek full-glass cladding of D1, whereas Q1 points out the floor plates.

The D1-webpage names Dubai Creek as the tower's location. I remember that's the place of the first, smaller skyline with buildings like the National Bank of Dubai. But D1 doesn't appear to be placed amidst other towers, there's so much green around... is it far away? A solitaire? And what's the distance to the new skyline at Sheikh Zayed Road?

It is even a copypaste of Q1's name, D1

After almost 9 months without an update here during times of a banking crisis,
I wouldn't have been very surprised to find D1 suddenly on some "On hold"-list.
But yesterday Imre came along with these pics on the Burj Dubai thread, labelling them "Burj Dubai, D1 and Versace Palazzo".
And I 100% trust him - so D1 is alive and rising :

Anyway,it's the kind of tower we would never see equal in any other city in the world

well its 284m to roof. one of the few WITHOUT a spire. all it needed was a tiny spire and would be a supertall.
even a 16m spire. it deserves a 50m spire. like sister Q1.

The design is definitely very similar to Q1, but since its concept as a "sister" tower its no wonder...i like it a lot, and its also good that it doesn't have a spire, almost every skyscraper, esp. in Dubai, nowadays has one, so it's positive to see one without.

Btw, regarding the location, how far is it exactly from Burj Dubai?
