Absolutely...I think, in the future, many architects will be inspired by this tower...

Nakheel and Emarr seem to be very competitive against each other. I wonder how long it will be (2-3 years maybe) before Emarr announces a tower taller than this one.

We still donīt know the final height and it will be a well guarded secrte for a long time. I can imagine that the height will increase during the next few years like it did at Burj Dubai, from letīs say 1140m to 1250 and then to maybe 1400m. And who knwos if the scale of the Nekheel Tower on this image



is right. Maybe they made it appearing smaller on this render to trick us. Who knows....all in all we have finally a 100% chance to have a tower on planet earth which exceeds the kilometer mark.

EDIT: look how ridicuolos small the SWFC appears on this comparrision.Allthough it is a massive building.

Can someone please put the official website in the first post?

www.nakheelharbour.com

Thanks...


So, like they said on that website, building will be around 100m dia, foundations will be separated on 4 parts and every part will be for one tower...These towers will be connected with skybridges every 25 meters...Hihghest level will be observation deck, and people will be able to reach up for only 4 minutes...And building will have 156 elevators...

Crazy...

I have already done a 3d Sketchup model of this project but i'm having some problems with uploading. So i'll post it later.

Also i have pasted the map together on nakheelharbour.com and made the map of the magnificent Dubai.

Nakheel Harbour and Tower - is based on Islamic design inspired by the gardens of Alhambra in Spain, the harbour of Alexandria in Egypt, the promenade of Tangier in Morocco and the bridges of Esfahan in Iran.

Simply astonishing I do not believe that there are enough adjectives to describe this project. Dubai proves once again that has no match in the World.
Like I said before it will be an absolute, immeasurable treat watching this tower being build and by the way things are going I might be very close to the action.

Nakheel pulled off a bloodless Cityscape coup on Sunday night - stealing the show before it had even started with the launch of a kilometre-high tower that is likely to become the world’s tallest building.

In front of an audience of VIPs that included Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, the developer chose the recently completed Atlantis hotel to reveal the giant structure.

The model itself was about three storeys high, and like the Millennium Dome, could easily be put to use for another purpose after the show winds up.
