That sky slope is so ugly. It looks like an after thought. They should have given it some snaking curves to give it a slope like feel. And those pylons it stands on could also be a few more towers. It would be a much more intriguing structure if it was all integrated. Think how would Zaha Hadid or Calatrava would have designed it. Not to that extreme but with a bit more flare.From cityscape today
But this is allready much more completed than the previous ones. Mall is coming along and the Lagoon-Part is also pretty much ongoing.This is unfortunately very unlikely to be built. The developer has had projects like these in the past but never saw the light of day.
I think it's a little too pessimistic to say this will never be built. Out of all the various megatall proposals, this has got to advanced stages of design, the site is ready, and the city is full of supertalls and developers who have the means to build them. While its construction isn't really certain, Dubai One certainly isn't the poster child for pipe dream projects either. There are many proposals out there that have far less substance behind them.This will never be built. Should have a separate section for these visions unlikely to happen
That's more about it being the world's tallest building. We could probably dig up the Shanghai Tower and Mecca Clock Tower threads to bring in more traffic, but that might draw discussion away from all the other threads for prospective megatalls. It's a discussion worth having, so let's move it to here: https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1916572&page=10The difference is that megatalls will never be archived when completed. The thread of Burj Khalifa is still here.
