A screenshot from the developer's website showing the towers, with improved design and space arrangement. At least the render circulating till now, wasn't a bogus one as we might been fearing.

Might been fearing? It'd be much better if this design was bogus and that they were joking and actually got Foster and Partners to design the towers.

hmmm I tend to agree with malec, do not like this design. Not sure if it sits well in the tallest block at all.

Does that mean that there won't be a 14 story podium?

Probably still be a 14 storey podium. However, the MEED press release said the project is still in the design stages and the new render does not show the podium.

Here is the plot. We should know more in the next week or 2.

Gotta say it's growing on me. It is one of those designs that becomes repetitive over three iterations but at the same time it is a nice design that once completed may prove refreshing in the context of the almost neo-Victorian Elite Residence, Princess Tower, Torch, and Marina 101

I heard that they will not actually be selling any units at Cityscape as such, but will sell a few weeks later. Not sure if this is true though. Anyone want hazard a guess as to launch pricing?

This looks really cool I wish there was a thread just to post pics of your favorite Dubai building excluding the Burj Dubai.
