JB Group to start work on debut project in March
Khaleej Times

27 December 2007
DUBAI -- The JB Group, a globally diversified company with Indian roots is to develop a 60-storey skyscraper, the JB Tower, in Downtown Burj Dubai.

The JB Tower, a commercial block scheduled to break ground in March, is the flagship in a $1.6 billion property venture in the Middle East by the JB Group. Designed in the shape of the JB Group logo -- a converged diamond and lotus, India's national flower -- the tower will be located at one of the Gulf region's major urban developments, opposite the Dubai Mall and near to the Burj Dubai tower.

"The JB Tower is our debut property project in the Middle East spearheading two other major developments, including a four-star hotel and on Shaikh Zayed Road, the Twin Towers," said Jatin Chutke, vice-president of JB Group.

Somehow I like this design, as far one can tell from the small and overexposed rendering, which makes it look worse thank it might be in real.

And another twintower-like project for Sheikh Zayed Road after Emirates Towers, Shangri-La Hotel, Angsana Hotel & Suites and Nikko Hotel/Acico Office Tower, that's not bad and almost a trademark for this mega-road.

A non-supertall with the status "approved" is remarkable for Dubai, because that phase doesn't last very long in most of the cases - so I guess JB Tower will be u/c quite soon!
