DUBAI | The Wave Tower | 370m | 1213ft | 92 fl | Pro



This project is approved according to the studio website. You can find some conceptual images there (flash): http://www.a-cero.com/

I've tryed to find some info in English, didn't get to. Some annoucements in Spanish (the architects are from Spain):

http://www.soloarquitectura.com/noti...007092802.html
http://www.enllave.es/actualidad/noticias/?p=1590
http://www.construnario.com/notiweb/....asp?id=488515

The tower will be located at Madinat Al Arab.

Thanks, legumbre.

Interesting but if it is in Madinat Al Arab (Dubai Waterfront) then we have to wait for a while till we can get more info, let alone construction progress.

Looks like it's purely conceptual at this stage. Might be better to close this thread and wait (especially for dubai projects) until they get confirmed that they're real.

Great design. I was becoming a bit worried about Dubai, afterall it has already been a couple of weeks since they released their last supertall....
