Don't think so. That's what we originally thought but they say location is undecided and it'll probably be near burj al arab. Personally I'm hoping it'll be built in place of that donut thing at the mouth of the marina.

You might like to see a built project from the same studio. The scale is very different, because this is just a single family house, but it's still a great design IMHO.

This looks great. Are there a lot of tall towers like this planned for the waterfront area?

Bigger renders

[img]http://*************************/dubai/jpgs/wave_tower_dubai_acero_141107_1.jpg[/img]

Location: Dubai
By: A-CERO Architects
Height: 92 floors, 370 meters
Materials: Double skin façade made of silk screened glass for solar control.
Uses: Mixed use (commercial, offices and high end residential).
Project status: Proposed

The tower stands like a stylized stem with a light torsion, creating the elegant movement that characterizes the project. The base has the form of a pointed arch with smooth bends, imitating the shape of the waves in the Gulf Sea. The structure is solved with “V” form unions between the different parts in the plan view. The installations and elevators are located in the central core. Interior gardens are present in all the common zones, improving the air quality and working as natural temperature regulators.

[img]http://*************************/dubai/jpgs/wave_tower_dubai_acero_141107_3.jpg[/img]

The project is located in the Madinat Al Arab District, a zone under development that is expected to become the new downtown and central business district of Dubai. When built, the Wave Tower will become the highest tower designed by Spanish architects.

Hmm...I think they forgot a tiny little tower called Chicago Spire designed by an obscure Spaniard named Calatrava.

You're absolutely right!
Since Calatrava's firm is based in Zurich, maybe this should read "spanish architects BASED in Spain".

Is funny how the Dubai forumers largely ignore this thread and never really cared about this tower in their own section.
