Dubai is poised to become the proverbial city of the future. Can't wait to see it in action.

DUBAI: Dubai Towers 54-97 Floors 400-240m

The Dubai Towers will be 400, 330, 310 and 240 meters.They will be built on a development called The Lagoons and will be finished in mid-2010.The designs for the towers were modeled after the flames of fire.



Sama Dubai unveils ‘Dubai Towers’

Sama Dubai, the real estate development and investment arm of Dubai Holding has announced the launch of ‘Dubai Towers – Dubai’, a cluster of breath-taking towers that combine, to form a truly inspiring and dynamic sculpture.

Centrepiece of ‘The Lagoons’ Central Business District, the ‘Dubai Towers - Dubai’ will comprise four state-of-the-art towers for residential, commercial, retail and hospitality purposes. Ranging between 57–94 floors, the estimated date of completion of ‘Dubai Towers - Dubai’ complex is mid 2010.

Launched under the ‘Dubai Towers’ brand of Sama Dubai, the iconic structures will feature a choreographed concept of form and function to metaphorically represent the movement of candle light.

Farhan Faraidooni, CEO, Sama Dubai said: “Symbolising hope, growth, harmony and opportunity, ‘Dubai Towers – Dubai’ represents an unique investment opportunity for those seeking a corporate lifestyle experience combined with peace and tranquillity in the seven beautifully landscaped islands of ‘The Lagoons’.”
Visible from extended distances as the main feature of ‘The Lagoons’ skyline, ‘Dubai Towers–Dubai’ will reflect the UAE’s futuristic vision and commitment to foster creativity and originality.

Faraidooni added: “As signature components of Sama Dubai, the ‘Dubai Towers’ brand is committed to sharing Dubai’s evolutionary and innovative achievements in the property sector with the world. In every country identified as a potential market for ‘Dubai Towers,’ Sama Dubai will develop exclusive landmark towers that reflect its distinctive personality.”

The ‘Dubai Towers’ brand is committed to deliver developments that offer a consistent and complete corporate experience, not just for businesses, but also for the people who live and work there. As the UAE’S gateway to international real estate investment and development, Sama Dubai is currently developing ‘Dubai Towers – Doha’, ‘Dubai Towers - Casablanca’ and ‘Dubai Towers – Istanbul’ under the ‘Dubai Towers’ brand.

As well as their bold architecture and prime locations, the ‘Dubai Towers’ will be characterised by the range of additional facilities they offer including retail, restaurants, entertainment, health spas, gymnasiums, hotels and residential apartments that create a vibrant, dynamic community.
The ‘Dubai Towers – Dubai’ will be revealed at the upcoming Cityscape exhibition taking place December 4-6 at the Dubai International Exhibition Center. The towers’ model will be showcased at ‘The Lagoons’ stand in hall 1, stand F30.

‘The Lagoons’ is a mixed-use freehold development being built along the Dubai Creek coastline. The AED 65 billion (US$ 18 billion) project will cover an area of 70 million square feet over 40 kilometres of waterfront land. Located next to the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, ‘The Lagoons’ will ensure harmonious existence with the surrounding eco-systems.

‘The Lagoons’ will appeal to tourists seeking cultural attractions with its theatre, museum, arts center and Dubai’s opera house.

Cool, but I am really disappointed that they appeared to have dumped Zaha Hadid, that really doesn't have the look of something she would design. IMO the originals were MUCH better and this is so literal. Bleh.

I should just pack up and move to Dubai. Getting stuck with a slave labor construction job would be worth seeing everything thats going on in person.

Towers and fire... kind of a bizarre combination we don't usually want.

These are NOT the dancing towers. The dancing towers are an entirely different project that just happens to be wiggly like these ones. Both projects are still alive and they're to be built in seperate locations.

These particular towers already have a thread here:
http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...=120774&page=2

The Zaha ones don't since it was deleted with the forum cleanup

malec, you are correct. I thought this was Business Bay, then just noticed the arrow on the map pointing the direction to BB, didn't notice it. Glad to hear the real Dancing Towers are still alive.

Whether you like them or not, the designs for most of Dubai's buildings are never bland or predictable. This is a wild idea but it made me wonder how in the world they would design an elevator system for buildings like these. It doesn't look like an elevator could go from the base of the building to the top no matter where you placed it due to the curving shapes. It seems like you'd have to go part way up and then walk to another elevator that would be placed at just the right position to continue your trip. Dubai never ceases to amaze me.

Someone should fix the title on this thread, otherwise it will be constant "why'd they replace the old proposal?"

Yup, in fact this thread shouldn't even be here since there's already an existing old thread here In fact I'm going to make a thread for the dancing towers since that got deleted.
