Thanks for the update DarkBlueBoss!!

I still can't believe that Abbco Rotana is going to pass up Burj Al Arab as the World's tallest Hotel.

They've still got a ways to go, if they want to finish be 2006.

Thanks for the info and pics DarkBlueBoss. I see you're an Inter Milan fan, how are they doing this year? I don't keep up with the Serie A as much as some of the other leagues.

Yes. It's very tall but as you can see, its design sucks ass!
Maybe a more detailed render would look better but still, this is the tower that's supposed to resemble big ben

Why on earth would they want to bring Big Ben along SZR Road. That would be an eyesore in my opinion, not to mention Falcon City of Wonders is already making a Big Ben Tower.

There's no big ben in falcon city. The one you heard about is this one. Hope it doesn't go through though. There is already some conflict with the planning authorities though because of this resemblance

So Falcon is off of SZR than?

Thing is though, at least it doesn't look EXACTLY like it.

A new one for SZR

Render not the greatest but should look pretty good on completion.

Wow, I like this tower already.

It looks like Residential to me. It actually reminds me of Burj Al Arab on the sides. :lol:

Is that one of the Rose Rotana the most up to date?

It seems like I've seen that same shot about a month ago.

Park Place and Bright Star should finish some time this year, I hope to see these done, it will add a bit of density to the skyline of Dubai.

Great Shots Malec, thanks for all of them. :thumbsup:

Yes rose rotana was taken only a few days ago. Core is at the 42nd floor or something like that. Aswell, I don't take any of these photos since I live in Ireland ;)

Right.

The last I checked it was around 30 or so. Good to see it's progressing along.
