#ON HOLD: NAKHEEL HARBOUR AND TOWER

Reposted...

Look at the new masterplan for the Palm Jumeirah. The central feature on the trunk has changed to a skyscraper. Keep in mind that the Trunk is about 3km long the tower looks like it will be at least 700meters!!!!

#PLANNED: THE PINNACLE, 120F Mixed, 750m, The Palm Jumeirah, Dubai

NAME: The Pinnacle
HEIGHT: 750m
FLOORS: 120
LOCATION: The Palm (1), DUBAI

The building is called the pinacle and consists of 3 seperate towers joined at various levels with huge atruims between in its hollow middle. It has two huge spires and is on display at the Nakheels office
Could be worlds tallest tower at 750 beating the relased height of the Burj Dubai Tower. Currently under consideration due to impact on the Palm. Another Location may be found it this does not go through

source www.emporis.com and www.skyscrapers.com

please do not forget: this is just proposed, not approved. but if i remember well i think i've heard that dubai wants to build it. if it's impossible on palm jumeirah (such a building is really heavy and may push down that part of the island where it will be situated). so if it's not possible on palm j they intend to build it on the continent!

If all this is true that the Pinnacle will be 750m tall then we have a very interesting contest on our hands for the world's tallest building, but also note that Emaar has said they will be leaving some margin to change the height during the course of contruction so since these rumours are out so early I think that the Burj Dubai will be between 777m and 800m+. I have known that the day would come when Dubai competes with it self. for eg the Mall of Arabia and Dubai Mall or the Burj Al Arab and the Forex Hotel.

As for the location I think it will be moved to a location on Sheikh Zayed Highway (maybe between Interchanges 2-6) because I dont think the Jumeriah Palm can take the weight. If you ask me they should move it to one of the empty spots on Sheikh Zayed Road (between the Trade Centre Roundabout and Interchange 1). But wont it be soooooooooo cool to have two buildings over 750m in Dubai. Thats like WOW!

Ive always known about Emaar leaving a margin to build higher if any contenstant was to attempt to build higher but for some reason I never saw or realized that The Pinnacle could be the threat that will make Emaar build higher, until now.

maybe the "fight" between emaar's burj dubai and nakheel's the pinnacle intends to keep the final height of burj dubai secret. we know that it will at least be 705m. but you can see written everywhere that burj dubai definitely is the tallest. so either the pinnacle is just a huge fake or it is to confuse people about the final height of burj dubai!

and pinnacle is just a proposal and not yet approved. but as the pinnacle is on every new rendering of palm jumeirah it seems to be reality.

so finally, 2 options:
burj dubai definitely 705m and pinnacle just a fake or
creating some confusion to keep burj dubai's height a secret till end of construction!

what do you think!?!?

I think the Pinnacle will be built but where and how tall still remains a mystery. I once got a poster from the nakheel office showing the pinnacle. So if their poster was to scale I had calculated the height of the Pinnacle to be between 437m and 468m. But I maybe wrong since these new rumours have surfaced. Only time will tell.

yes a mystery! i also wondered about the height of the pinnacle in nakheels sales center. the scale of this building in comparison to the yellow houses around it, is strange. the pinnacle seems to be max. 400m tall!!!!!

I just noticed on skyscrapers.com that it should be done by 2009. Height 750 meters. What's going on with this project?
