Apart that, the article also sheds some light about the developer. We knew only the name and that it was a Goverment backed newly created company.

You can make one in the skyscrapers, structures and architecture forum where other visions such as this, sky city, x-seed 4000 and so on can be discussed

houses waiting to be demolished

On the left of this site there are like 20 palm trees being planted. Unfortunately I couldn't take a picture. Could it be a future sales center?

I guess they are probably required for stability, but those cables look like spiderwebs. I hope the structural engineers find a way to remove them from the final design.

i'm pretty sure there going to be taken out of the final design. what i dont like is this tower is right in front of the Burj Dubai. and thats going to take views away!! that never seems to fail in Dubai

I'm sorry but that's one of the best things about the design. They're using suspension bridge on a skyscraper, a world's first!

If the design height is anywhere near that (anything 500+), it's gonna be an incredibly massive structure, no comparison to the Burj.

I hope Adrian's firm is really putting weight behind it, i hope they're hungry to succeed and something emerges for us to drool over

Dubai is getting more and more surreal. Like some futurist dream.

I'm not sure if this question has been asked before but do the developers of these superscrapers expect full occupancy or are they being built specifically for prestege and the honor of being home to the WTB's ?
