One of my skyscraper fantasies is... build a district like the Dubai Marina tallest block, but much larger, then have a suspended monorail between the towers at 300m or so.

Sorry to go off-topic but the First Order didn't destroy Coruscant. It was another group of planets inside of the 'New Republic'.

Geekyness aside - this project is looking incredible. The area is very impressive.

So what is the current speed? My guess is a floor a week but I could be wrong. Anyone know?

I wish the car parks were underground... The streets would've looked more alive

If they wait with the cladding till the end, it will be until then that we have to wait to know which design they are building.

A little strange that the tower is standing so alone in that render, since a lot of its appearance comes from its background. It's not very informative either, if they want to give passers-by a visualization of what it will be like, it should at least be pointed out somewhere that this will be the tallest tower on the block.

I also like how the first thing listed on the board is the building permit. As if the most important thing to say is "Don't worry, we have permission!". The name of the tower, though? Nah, not important enough to put on the board. Not that the name is that spectacular anyway, but it's strange that it's absent.

Well, project boards have never been fancy in Dubai, unless Emaar or Damac is behind the project

When was the crown changed? That's quite a bit different from the original one. Possibly a lot better, too, though it's hard to tell from that poster.

I've been having the exact same fantasy, down to the height of the monorail system!
