Or Approved....
Or Proposed....

I think this tower would look more awesome in Abu Dhabi because it would dwarf other tall buildings in Abu Dhabi......
Can someone like ask one of the developers about this project?
Hope there's good news.

the new design is simply amazing, but is there a source for this being an actual thing?

It does resemble half of a leaf spring with the arc put in the other direction.

It would be quite interesting to see this one built.

There's the architect's logo in there so I doubt the guy (who had many renders of different projects) would have faked them. They do look like architectural drawings, though, the picture of the Marina used as backdrop suggest the work might not be new. Probably a redesign since before the crisis.

Maybe someone should ask the guy who posted them on flickr.

Just reread the first page. There were three proposed designs from ATKINS offices in Dubai, China and UK that were competing. Maybe this is one of those three (one of the two that lost).
