That is a good question...i like the original design with those silver waves...meanwhile...does this mean the DCCI tower 2 is completely off the table now? Since some of those bridges cross rite over its proposed plot.

#PROJECT: ALADDIN CITY, COM+HOTEL (34F+26F+25F)

Landmark Aladdin City to come up in Dubai

11 April 2014

Dubai has announced a new landmark project named Aladdin City, the design of which has been inspired by the tales of Sindbad and Aladdin.

The project comprises three towers — a hotel and two commercial towers — built in the air space above the Dhow Wharfage in Dubai Creek between the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Al Maktoum Bridge.

The towers of different heights, which look akin to the magical lamp of Aladdin, are connected with a 450m-long pedestrian bridge with travellator, leading to parking stations away from the project site. ......

While I am all for unconventional designs, RIP Tiara United Towers, this is the ONE time I would have preffered something more conventional...not that the other proposals ever were conventional but this was the last thing i thot they would choose.

maybe it will look better when its done...maybe...for now...:puke::puke::puke::puke:

the silver waves would have worked better...also we had a thread for this

also am I the only one who thinks the name makes it sound like something that should be on the Bawadi strip...

Work on Dubai's Aladdin City set to start in 2016
By Sarah Townsend Thursday, 12 February 2015 2:04 PM

Construction of Dubai’s Arabian Nights-inspired ‘Aladdin City’ scheme will start next year, the municipality chief has announced.

Director-general Hussain Nasser Lootah told Emirates 24/7 that work on the 4,000 acre project at Dubai Creek will start in 2016 and the municipality has the funds required to finance it.

Aladdin City, announced last April, has been inspired by the tales of Aladdin and Sindbad.

The plans comprise three towers of 34, 26 and 25 storeys, which will provide 110,000 sq m of commercial and hotel space.

Air-conditioned bridges with moving floors connect the towers, driveways and parking lots. The shape of the main bridge that links the buildings represents the form of exotic and fabled creatures such as dragons and snakes, the developers say.

There will be a total parking space for 900 cars. The total cost has not been revealed.

“The project aims to develop towers to be the icons of legends of the past with a touch of beauty and tourism characteristic of the city. It comes in the prime location of Dubai Creek maintaining the activities of the port heritage. The project is located outside the zone waiting to be registered with the World Heritage by Unesco,” Lootah was quoted as saying.
