I think there is one for the whole area . But in my opinion it is useless to have one
DCH is still in the early phases. So most of the plots are empty, and Emaar will fill it with towers with random designs

Edit: here is one picture that i found on instagram. i will cover cityscape tomorrow

Indeed ... Cityscape was basic this year ... I took a lot of photos they are just not exciting ... Here's one of this district I took

Groundbreaking of Dubai's The Tower to take place today

http://khaleejtimes.com/storyimage/K...20161010080512



Set in the heart of Dubai Creek Harbour, The Tower, designed by Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava Valls, is set to be 100 metres taller than Burj Khalifa.

Dubai is once again reaching for the sky with the groundbreaking of the emirate's brand new icon, The Tower, set to be taller than Burj Khalifa, will take place today.

Set in the heart of Dubai Creek Harbour, The Tower, designed by Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava Valls, is set to be 100 metres taller than Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest tower standing at 828 metres.

Emaar Properties launched the project in April this year. It is described by Emaar chairman Mohamed Alabbar as "an ambitious project on a never-before scale and design" which will require "high-precision engineering across all its facets".

Scheduled to be delivered ahead of Expo 2020 at a cost of $1 billion (Dh3.67 billion) to build, The Tower "will serve as a beacon of hope and positivity for the city and the region," he added.

The Tower, however, is not a "traditional skyscraper" but a slender tower evoking the image of a minaret anchored to the ground with sturdy cables. It will have observation decks, hanging gardens, a world-class boutique hotel, and other tourist facilities.

Its design, chosen after a competitive pitch from some of the world's top architects, draws inspiration from the lily and evokes the image of a minaret, a common feature and distinctive aspect of Islamic culture, while the elongated oval-shaped bud and geometric texture set the template for the observation decks.

At night, The Tower will emit a 'beacon of light' from its peak featuring a 'flower bud' design as a floating element.

The Tower serves as the vibrant core of Dubai Creek Harbour, a 6 sq. km world-class master planned development that is two times the size of Downtown Dubai and located 10 minutes form the Dubai International airport. The waterfront development is centred off the Dubai Creek, the cradle of Dubai's history and culture, and in close proximity to the Ras Al Khor National Wildlife Sanctuary, protected under the Unesco Ramsar Convention and home to over 67 species of water birds.

actually contrary to Burj Khalifa, it's mainly a mast...so much much less concrete, not much floors...i think it will be ok the get it built in 4 years

It's a bit like Eiffel Tower : they built it in a record time (2 years) for the time because of the shape (getting narrower the more you rise) and not being a classic concrete building with floors

this is happening, this is Dubai, This is Emaar...that Tower will be the Eiffel Tower of Dubai Expo 2020...even if it's located the complete other side of Expo site !

They even managed to plan it a bit taller than Kingdom 1 km tower !!!

Kinda reminds me of the height competition in NYC in past centuries between some Business Moguls competing to build the tallest towers and increasing the height at last minute (Empire State Building, Chrisler Building etc...)

Exciting times we are living !!!

The only thing i don't like is the name : they should rightly call it BURJ DUBAI

At least to close the loop of History

That name is already taken by an 828m tall tower in Downtown Dubai!
