They should change the location, IMO it would look better there where Etisalat2 was built.....

^I agree 100%. The towers would look stunning on the Sheikh Zayed Road where Etisalat 2 is.

Local developer Mizin has suspended its Tatweer Towers development in Dubailand.
It remains unclear why the project has been shelved, but it is understood that there had been issues with nearby flight paths for Dubai International Airport.

The project had involved the construction of two high-rise towers, which will be used for a five-star hotel and offices. The total built-up area would have been 900,000 square metres.

Three groups had been shortlisted for the construction contract. The companies were: the local/ South African joint venture of Al-Habtoor Engineering Enterprises and Murray & Roberts Contractors (Middle East); South Korea's Samsung Corporation; and Lebanon's Arabian Construction Company.

US-based Morganti Group is the project manager (MEED 21:1:08).

It is not the first time that flight paths have affected tower projects in Dubai. In 2006, the proposed 75-storey Al-Durrah tower was redesigned as a 47-storey tower to accommodate Department of Civil Aviation regulations. The contract was later awarded to Dubai Contracting Company.

It's no major loss, in my opinion.

Look at it this way - Dubai has 55 other supertalls planned, and many hundreds of smaller skyscrapers.

Who cares! It was to be in the middle of nowhere anyway. If it was right next to burj dubai then it'd be a different story

The T-Rex and the rest of the dinosaurs gang would strongly disagree.

Why don't they donate this design to DAS Holding which can build it instead of that monstrosity of Marina Sky Towers. If they donated the plot of land to them, give them the design for free also and everyone is a winner.

Ok, let me summarize it for you: They were canceled because the towers design had no provision for separated lifts and entrances for male and female inhabitants/visitors.

Is the whole Dubailand project canceled, or just the skyscrapers?

The entire project is, because they couldn't find a sub-contractor to supply them with millions of abayas and headscarfes to be wore by western female tourists.
