Aren't there airport restrictions just down the road that limit building heights to 200m? Surely it can't rise from 200m to 600 or 800m.

if thi is the real location that wont be good with all these old villas around it

I was little disappointed though at the design of the AC Towers, having read there description. I'm not sure why many of you like the design of it - its hideous. I was expecting a render with three seperate towers only connected by a single sky bridge just above ground level - not many skybridges that rise with the tower ARGH!

I seem to have missed something.
I understand AltinD said that he has reason to believe the Atrium City Towers will be at least 850 metres in height.
But then a few posts later, AltinD said that it will be in Jumeirah Garden City. But he did not say if it was a rumour or not. But it did sound like a fact.
Is there a valid reason for this assumption? Or did AltinD get the height information and the location information from the same "bird"?
Thanks so much for the help.

johnville, someone said something similar back in June. I replied with this post: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...5#post21666935.
