Dubai Extreme High Rise Thread

Recommended Posts

I've decided to devote a thread to extreme high rises in Dubai, except for a few exceptional towers.

The First one is The Torch. The Torch will be located in the Dubai Marina and will be 84 Floors.

Here's a pic:

This next one is my favorite.

Ocean Heights is an 82 story Residential Tower that should be built within the next few years. There are breathtaking views of the azure-blue sea from any of the 600+ luxury freehold condominiums in Ocean Heights.

Ocean Heights is strategically located at the entrance of Dubai Marina with easy access to nearby beach-front luxury hotels, including the 7-star Burj Al Arab, shopping arcades, beach clubs, golf courses, and other leisure facilities such as the Wild Wadi water amusement park.

Here's the next tower.

23 Marina offers 90 levels of luxury and opulence in Dubai's most exclusive location, Dubai Marina.

Reaching skyward, 23 Marina is a tribute to the glory of Dubai, setting itself up with other grand landmarks around the city. The 380 meter high tower is an icon of exposed concrete and tinted blue glass, punctuated by podiums and balconies that contrast with the fa

Here's another real tall one.

The Najd Tower is supposed to be 82 Floors and be completed by 2009. It's primarily residential from what I've heard.

Here's a great shot of a model of the building:

One Central Park is a very modern looking building that I don't have much info for. I know it's suppose to be around 80 stories, but I don't think construction has started yet so it could be 2010 or so before it's built. I'm not even sure if it's office or residential, but it looks office to me.

Ahmed Abdul Rahim Al Attar Tower is another extremely nice looking building, kidding there all nice :D .

This tower is currently under construction, but I don't have any construction photos. The Tower should be 70 stories and be completed by 2008.

It looks primarily residential (upscale).

This next tower is the Burj Dubai Lake Hotel. The Last I heard on this project was that it was being planned for 63 or so stories, around 300m and be completed by 2008.

This is near the Burj Dubai so it should go in very well.

The Next Tower is an unnamed building that has been proposed for around 93 floors.

This is about the Most modern building this tall I have seen proposed for Dubai.

I only have one pic:

The Infinity Tower has quite an impressive design. This Tower has only been proposed, in which it is around 80 Stories, but nothing construction wise has started.

Really is quite an interesting building.

Some great looking buildings. I like a lot of the blue/silver or blue/white color schemes on a number of them. This will be an amazing city to see when a lot of these buildings and developments are done.

23 Marina will be the tallest residential building in the world once completed.

It will be 90 stories and should be complete by 2008.

Even if you went to Dubai today you'd probably have a hard time recognizing it if you went back in just 5 years.

Yeah, and even 30 years it would be like a ghost town.
