This is NOT Dubai Towers in Istanbul, It's The Emirates Tower in Amman JORDAN.

Designed by SOM

wow so now dubai is producing copies of copies?

I wouldnt want a tower that high to be identical to others in some other country, and have a foreign name to top it all.

look carefuly and you will notice those houses arent slum houses and if you were next to them in real life you will propably wish to live in one... ;)

the pic is very ugly and this area is underconstruction if you also look really well you will see an underconstruction house next to it after they complete they usually add the greens.
the slums in amman are brown...

definitely a hoax, SOM would not produce a render with such a crappy background...
There is the huge `abdali project in `Amman (solidere-like, hariris in it as well) that will put `amman on the map, it is a city with a lot of potential and a great amount of capitals flowing... but I do not believe the city should get into high-rises, it is a city on hills, skyscrapers would not look good, they have a beautiful low-rise architecture that they should draw on.
