That sounds phenomenal!

But somehow I'm not surprised by such messages from Dubai anymore… It's just slowly goin to be somewhat boring to hear thangs like that in nearly each case only from Dubai.

I don't know if this thread should have even been made yet. We have no info on heights or anything, just some pictures of models, renders, etc. And the design is different on each.

This model was shown at cityscape last year. The convention this year is only in a few weeks so expect some more info there.









The render of the entire masterplan shows 4 towers with a completely different design.






This project won't be built for a loooong time, that's why I don't think this thread should have been posted yet. I'll leave it though.
There isn't even a final design yet, it's probably still in the initial stages of the design process.

^ Jurassic Park in Dubai? Are they also going to simulate an outbreak of the museum exhibits, in order to reduce the population?

What you called DINOTOPIA (the dinosour theme park and museum) and the rest of the things shown in that picture (City Of Arabia), are not related in any way with the subject of this thread. They just happen to be oposite to eachother.

Please (all) stop talking about dinos.

This project is even bigger than the Burj Dubai complex and is to be the "downtown" of DubaiLand. I'd say anywhere between 8 - 12 years before this one is done.

yes, looks very tall, 500m or more are indeed possible when they would use this design
