Well I guess no matter which way, anything skyscraper related can be traced back to Chicago

Still a beautiful design!

It is interesting to know that ONE DUBAI will be almost the same height as Burj Dubai. Not only that, the buildings will not be too far away from each other so should have good view from each other.

Does anyone concern that certain areas of Dubai will never receive sunshine because of the shadows the supertalls will cast? But then again, it may be a welcome thing since I heard it is extremely hot there.

I like the design of this tower, but I don't like the cables that support the skybridges!!

I love the design but have its constructors really put some thought into this? Build another huge skyscraper when the world might be heading for a long recession and property markets are collapsing? I have the impression that people are already trying to sell their properties for cash all over the world; especially British people in Dubai.

Isn't cash the weakest asset to own in a recession? (aside from the need to be liquid)

It's kinda of like an upside down, inverse Burj-Dubai. It's even staggered the way the Burj-Dubai is.

The photo showing the road with views of this and Burj Dubai on either side is simply stunning. They look a good complement to each other. My favourite out of all the recent supertall proposals.

If we don't ever explore our limits of imagination and or power, then there is no progress in, "trying". Yes, even if it ridiculous.

This might sound all weird and stuff but imagine if an Alien Species came here and we never built anything too our limits, how would they see us? I think we wouldn't be worth their time for not making progress.

Also since these buildings are intended to stand for a long time, it is inevitable that they will be filled at some point. There are exceptions too this obviously. But let's face it, if no one ever took risks or leaps, say goodbye to well over 80% of medical advances.

I can actually make an entire article on why Dubai should keep doing what it's doing. But too stay on topic...

I really love the Sky Bridges, I would really love to live in a unit up there and have a glass floor too look down from. I'm sure even modest sized buildings would look like ants from up there.

I agree. A big advertisement I saw this morning somewhere in Dubai:

"It's kind of fun to do the impossible" - Walt(er) Elias Disney

That's what Dubai is trying at the moment, especially with projects like One Dubai.

I really like its design but what's the point?
There must a reason (at least economical) why such a project has never been built in cities like NYC, HK or Tokyo!

Does anyone know the occupation rate of Duba´'s real estate? I'm really curious...
