Just made a picture in photoshop to show the impact of both the Anara and Nakheel Tower in context to the Marina, JLT and DMC. Sorry if the towers aren´t 100% in sclae.

1 km tower + 40 towers 250 meters to 350 meters in ONE project. Can u imagine how big the site will look like?

BTW I'm still worried about the impact of financial crisis for the tower and for Dubai. Nakheel said that for this huge project, you dont have to care about the financial cycle, because it take more than 10 years to buit it. Hope he is right, because the crisis will not stop tomorrow.

Sorry for my english speaking.

So I guess this is Nakheel's replacement for the Al Burj project.
