They bought the plot of land from the Hotel Owner and a huge outcry exploded in Dubai because within the perimeter of the Hotel but in a separate building, is located Hard Rock Cafe Dubai which really had a huge following from the expat population.

Because of the protest the Government gave up and allowed the Hard Rock Cafe to stay. We don't know what this means for the project, but the Hotel as i said earlier is ready to be demolished.

This doesn't mean that the Municipality has approved the design but the developer has already taken posession of the land plot and can start work even before that.

Let's wait and see, the credit crunch has also to be considered.

They should move the hard rock cafe into the restaurant at the top of Anara That would be a fun place to be rather than putting some expensive boring restaurant there.

I don't mind, as long as it will not be smaller then it is, the car hanging from the ceiling will stay and the old CRT TVs gone and replaced by newer plasmas or LCD.

Oh, and available car parking also.

Placing "Hard Rock Cafe" as the restaurant at the top would be totally awesome!
But I think that top part should be big enough to have several restaurants of choice and one could be Hard Rock Cafe.

Someone should ask the Manager of Hard Rock Cafe to provide a proposal to have its restaurant moved to the top! They should be able to negotiate!

You guys are full of zingers today haha

This tower is ridiculous though...how many penthouses are they planning on having in it? This tower isn't just tall, it's also extremely massive, so it seems like they should be able to fit a high number of penthouses here. The amentities they're planning are out of this world..private pools for every penthouse? Wild.

Is anyone on this forum planning to buy one of the penthouses with the swimming pool?
If so, could you be kind enough to invite me to your place so I can take some pictures?
