DUBAI | Supertall Projects & Construction

A general rundown is impossible to maintain for this city.

Check out this insane list

The definitions for the descriptions in the status:

Completed - Structure ready and no more work going on on the outside of the tower. This doesn't mean it's opened yet though, just structurally complete.
Topped Out - Full height reached including spire
Rising- Between being at ground level and full height
Ground Work - Anything happening before tower reaches ground level. This description is important because lots of towers stall for a while or take a really long time before rising.
Announced & Selling - We're pretty much sure the tower has the final design and construction should start within a year.
Announced - Design officially revealed but no selling of office space or apartments. The design shown most likely final design
Under Design - Tower is known about, including developer, and the design is in the final stages but not yet complete. Design may still change.
Concept- Towers which are probably real projects but not necessarily(I try to exclude insignificant ones or ones most likely to be fake). Design in early stages
On Hold - Tower started construction, then stopped.
Stale Proposal - A tower which didn't start construction and which there has been no news about it for a long time. Most likely a cancelled project.


The List

Yes they're ugly as f**k and they're also plonked in an already overcrowded area blocking out all light and views.

About Dubai, all I can say is wtf?! Future Star Wars films will be filmed here for real, no longer will Lucas & Co need to rely on effects if all of these supertalls become reality.

Malec: Al Yaqoub is not in hold, it has been steadily rising, even that not fast. The Index is on the 73rd floor, soon to rise on the 74th (which would be the 79th level above ground)

Al Qudra Road runs from Arabian Ranches/Dubai Autodrome roundabout though Bawadi


The Desert Gates at the entrance to Bawadi, a 10km strip of Las Vegas style hotels


Desert Gates, the monumental entrance to Bawadi


Asia Asia - the largest of the hotels planned along the 10km Bawadi strip

They will built the hole world over along the highway in the dessert!

That model means nothing though. It looks like it was thrown together as quickly as possible and is in fact ridiculous and as "crazy" as possible to draw attention. The heights haven't been worked out yet but around 300m seems right.

Bawadi project in Dubailand


Tatweer, a unit of Dubai Holding, said the project will boast the largest concentration of leading hotels in the world and help Dubai cope with the 15 million tourists it hopes to attract by 2010.Called Bawadi, the project will nearly double the current number of hotel rooms through several themed hotels and also develop entertainment centres, shopping malls, theatres, restaurants and convention centres.

The centrepiece of Bawadi will be the world's largest hotel, Asia-Asia, which alone will comprise 6,500 rooms, combining 5,100 four-star and an additional 1,400 five-star rooms.

Asia-Asia will be a part of the first phase of development, which includes total spending of Dh12 billion by Tatweer in hotel and infrastructure, and will be completed by 2010.

The capacity of Bawadi will be 29,200 rooms, out of which 12,450 will be developed by Tatweer's 12 themed hotels, with another 16,750 rooms developed by independent investors in another 19 hotels.
Together, the hotels are expected to host 3.3 million guests by 2016, that will be more than 21 per cent of the total number of tourists that Dubai expects to receive by that time.

I think they will over date i think the complete finishing date can we aspect around 2015-17?
