That's the coolest building that I've ever seen. They can build anything in Dubai; They have tons of money.

Whilst acknowledging that it is not always the most reliable of sources, Wikipedia says there will be 67 floors in this design. However, there is no citation given for that claim. Despite that, the figures must have come from somewhere.

The top floors in the new project look screwed up. Are they even supposed to connect the four buildings in this complex? I hate the look of the top of the buildings.

Love the design, but agree it doesn't fit Dubai perfectly.

Maybe this will change your mind:







Well, maybe it doesn't fit indeed, but it really is a design of high quality and we will see a interesting construction process

Also check the very badly photoshopped Burj Al Arab in the last pic

The only thing that could possibly be described as not fiting in Dubai would be a semi detached house.... anything this big and this unusual not only fits in Dubai, it IS dubai, by any definition of what dubai is this building fits perfectly. It's big it's bold it's unusual and it's expensive..... and it wouldn't get built anywhere else in the world.


Fits just fine!
