Proposed skyscrapers

52 posts in this topic

Some of these are likely to get built but there are a lot of concepts here too. Taken from a boom thread I created but can't post on this forum since it contains as many links to skyscrapercity as there are towers.

My favourite, Sun Tower by SOM:

Malec you've done a great job posting pics over here, a big thanks to you. The architecture that's going on over there is just simply amazing. The very sleek modern look like the first 'slanting' building over to the ones with the crescent moons using icons embedded in the islamic culture. Very interesting.

Same here.

Hopefully they'll all be built.

I said something earlier about needing to go through and pick favorites. But to be honest I don't know where I'd start there's so many great designs to choose from.

Cool Stuff.

A lot of the beginning proposals remind me of the new residential developments in Austin, Texas.

That Hotel on the Jebal Ali will be amazing if ever built.

So what is this tower?

Residential? Commercial?

^^ It's commercial. I'm just saying it's weird because the marina is commercial. Doubt this'll go through. Hope it does though because I love it.

I have some more proposals btw. They all look similar to towers already being built (they do look nice though) so am not sure if they've been seen yet. Will post them later when I find out exactly which one are new.

I always thought the Marina was residential.

Sorry, I meant to say, the marina's residential. My mistake :D

Yeah those are some interesting buildings. I'm still trying to catch up after being gone a while for the holidays.

^I'm going to be gone for three 1/2 days, so I can only imagine how many new developments will be here when I get back. :lol:

These two have to be my favorite.

Any ideas on Floor Counts?

These new Residential Developments are really starting to remind me of Miami.

Count them and see. They're both around 60F. These most likely won't be built. It's just a proposal. Most of these won't be built, only a few will

Definitely some nice looking buildings. One of them reminds me somewhat of Landmark Tower in Yokohama.

A tall one I found on the net. Around 80F so definitely over 300m:

Wow, haven't seen anything about this one. It's not every day you here about another 300M tower proposed for Dubai. Any more info on it?
