Impressive; though despite it's height, I do like Burj Dubai a little more, far more elegant. This is just a huge chunk.

Anyway, a 7 star hotel and a 5 star hotel, residences, offices, exhibition and convention centre; this is going to be a rather busy place; especially for one with 40 000 workers and 80 000 residents.

One thing though, it claims to be Dubai's capital. Does it mean arms of government will move in? Silly question but kinda curious.

Don't think it was posted before. Imagine how it will look at night for real.
Gorgeous!

They should've used the shift lens principle for the render though, the top is awfully skewed. That's arch photography/rendering 101.

The name of the tower is.

Nakheel Habour & Tower, Dubai.

The title is wrong.

No, that's the name of the whole project. The tower is Nakheel Tower, and the inlet from the creek at the base is Nakheel Harbor.
