These were announced only a few days ago and really caught my eye. The tallest has 94 floors and should be just under 400m tall. I think 400m is the absolute limit there because of the proximity of the airport. Also I think the towers in the background might just be placeholders as opposed to showing their final design
Sama Dubai, the real estate development and investment arm of Dubai Holding has announced the launch of â€˜Dubai Towers â€“ Dubaiâ€™, a cluster of breath-taking towers that combine, to form a truly inspiring and dynamic sculpture.
Centrepiece of â€˜The Lagoonsâ€™ Central Business District, the â€˜Dubai Towers - Dubaiâ€™ will comprise four state-of-the-art towers for residential, commercial, retail and hospitality purposes. Ranging between 57â€“94 floors, the estimated date of completion of â€˜Dubai Towers - Dubaiâ€™ complex is mid 2010.
Launched under the â€˜Dubai Towersâ€™ brand of Sama Dubai, the iconic structures will feature a choreographed concept of form and function to metaphorically represent the movement of candle light.
