Dubai announces 550m supertall tower

cross Dubai myriad construction projects are underway in the lead up to World Expo 2020. But it turns out there’s always room for one more. State-owned investment firm Dubai Holding has released details of a huge post-expo construction mega-project, which will include a 1,804 feet (550-meter) high tower — taller than One World Trade Center in New York.The tower, called Burj Jumeira, is situated in the Al Sufouh area of Dubai close to the Burj Al Arab. Plans show it will be surrounded by a mixed-use, residential and commercial zone dubbed “Downtown Jumeria” (not to be confused with Downtown Dubai, the location surrounding the Burj Khalifa to the north).

Within the thumbprint base will be a water fountain and artistic spaces say its developers, as well as residential and commercial space beyond

Rather than wait until post-expo to start building, construction is set to begin immediately according to a company press release, with the first phase to be completed in 2023. Burj Jumeira’s design is said to be inspired by desert dunes and oases according to Dubai Holding, and will feature a platform at 1,476 feet (450 meters) with sky lounge and restaurant. An observation deck will also afford 360-degree views across the city.

he 62-story tower The Grand is part of Dubai Creek Harbour’s residential plans. The Dubai Creek mega-project will be home for as many as 200,000 people, says developer Emaar.

Perhaps the tower’s most distinctive feature is its base, designed in the outline of Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid’s thumbprint. There’s plans for an amphitheater within the thumbprint for cultural events, as well as a water fountain.

Continuing the tradition of Dubai malls housing climate-defying attractions, Dubai Square will feature a winter-themed indoor adventure park.Emaar Properties

If some of its features sound similar to the Burj Khalifa — the world’s tallest building at 2,716 feet (828 meters) high — the Burj Jumeria will also be covered in a digital display capable of lighting up the tower.When it breaks ground it will join 13 other “supertall” — 300 meter (984 feet) or more — structures currently under construction in Dubai according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.
