OK I'll update. If people could point out any other inaccuracies that'd be great.

Some bad news:

Reason for shelving the project is unknown, but it is understood that there had been issues with nearby flight paths for Dubai International Airport.

The real estate project had involved the construction of two high-rise towers that will be used for a five-star hotel and offices. The total built-up area would have been 900,000 square metres.

Dubailand, a 3 billion sq ft real estate development in Dubai, offers one of the biggest leisure, entertainment and tourism options in the Middle East. A number of Dubailand projects are currently up and running including Al Sahra Resort, Dubai Sports City and the Dubai Autodrome, with a host of other projects currently in their final stages to be underway very soon.

Abraaj Tatweer Twin Towers
~110 floors, ?m, Cancelled


Strange since this is very far away from the airport, much further than a tower of similar height (dubai towers).



However there's a new Atkins supertall under design:

I would prefer a very nicely designed 101 floor tower of just above 400 meters in height.



... and I don't like the design showed on post 34
