Listen mate, Not everyone in that forum thinks it will be higher than Nakheel tower including myself. Its true mile high has been scaled down significantly (I think to about 1150 metres) and also the Nakheel tower's height probaly isn't fully represented in the render. It could be 1400 metres as Nakheel announced quite recently before all the new info came out. And mile high tower may not be called mile high tower anymore when it gets released like today or tommorow as was 'Al Burj' or 'Tall Tower' became 'Nakheel harbour tower'

I wonder, will there will be a tower higher than this one? And I expect that "YES"! It's just a matter of time. Probably, the next one will come with a height of 2 km.

Please use this thread for that tower. By the way wasn't it reduced to 1000m or something?

The design of the mile high tower looks not like a real design to me. Just something for press attention.

They announced that the height was significantly reduced by up to 500 metres which is roughly down to about 1150 metres.

And the Nakheel Tower looks wonderful. I love everything about it
I still wish they would build the old design too...:P

Two things bother me about this picture. First, I think the picture is looking north to the gulf. If that is the case, I don't understand how there can be a Harbour.

Second, this area looks very industrial. I just wonder, why here? Is this really the site for the Nakheel Harbour Tower?

Thanks for the questions Woozy. Sorry I'm not planning to release the map at this time but if I think about it I suppose there's nothing wrong in doing so down the road. Believe it or not, they are textured with a light steel map. It's just that the towers are so large that barely anything fits due to no scaling.

I could spend more time texturing them in Max and seeing how the engine will take it from there. To texture in CryEngine alone on buildings as large as these is proving to be a headache - I've tried, trust me... It's very picky as to what gets imported smoothly or not. That's why the larger towers aren't even solid. Just to get them to import as raw models still took two days lol.

1. The Harbor will be man made, on an artificial canal.

2. Eventually (remember it will be 10 years before the whole project is done) the desalinization plant and the associated industrial infrastructure will be removed and built elsewhere.

I really doubt that plant is going anywhere. In fact I'd bet that it will get even bigger soon enough.

this tower doesn't fit in this forum! 300 m towers look ridiculous compared to this. Shouldn't a hypertalls forum be created with only 600+ towers? considering they keep on coming !

The answer is very simple NO why because there are only two towers that fit in this category ...why should we create a new subcategory of a forum just for two buildings.
