Those two sites are currently fenced, the one on the right is the one AltinD posted. The other one is what used to be a prison. The boxes I've drown is in proportion of how big the current sites are, they are not very accurate but just to give u a general picture !

I find it hard to believe that these towers are at that location. Just down the road Sama tower was cut from 330m to 200m because of flight paths and they want to build up to 850m here? It looks the construction is more for a canal anyway.

I partly agree. But of course we will not know until official details are released.

When I saw one of the models of AC Towers, I thought it would be located behind the DIFC.

See the building outlined in red:


To me, it looks like One Park Avenue:


or even the Rolex Tower.

We will just have to be patient and wait....

Not related, just a placeholder.

Malec, the construction site is clearly for towers or building complexes. It is not for a canal.

That's a site perimeter wall, that's why I said they are not digging a canal there.

Oh right. I guess we'll see eventually. If they are building these towers then I recon it will be a long time before we actually see what exactly is going on. Hopefully cityscape will reveal some info.

Is it possible for them to be the best designed towers on the World, but not the best designed towers by Adrian Smith


... unless he has designed something in the Moon that we don't know nothing about yet?

This tower(s) really have to get built! The design is just astonishing, and i'm pretty sure it would become an instant landmark of Dubai just like Burj Dubai and Burj Al-Arab.
IMO, ACT would be one of the most fantastic constructions to be ever built , both from a technical and an architectural view.
