From the looks of the last rendering, it has a little Chicago Spire in it.

Dubai waterfront I think but it mightn't even be decided. I've a feeling this isn't a real project.

The project is located in the Madinat Al Arab District, a zone under development that is expected to become the new downtown and central business district of Dubai.

As much as I dislike a lot of dubai's proposals, I must say this one is definitely an eye catcher.

Yeah, good design. And the bridge connecting it to mainland is orgasmic. If you look at it closely.

This is one I'd have to see in person to appreciate. I just can't get myself to like this architecture. It's too 'out there' for me.

very nice,the sleek desighn is much different from alot of the balcony and metalic details soaked into buildings we usaully see in dubia,and the elegant flowing form is an eyecatcher.
