Arrow DUBAI | Dubai Pearl | 984 FT / 300 M | 73 FLOORS



Nice video at the offcial site

I'm not sure if it's only a proposal or if it's alreay under construction, but it seems like it's going to be one huge building.

Quote:
The project, located within the Dubai Media and Technology Free Zone (TECOM) overlooking Palm Jumeirah, will be developed with a built up area of more than 15 million square feet.

That's certainly different, but then again that's the case for most things that come out of Dubai.

As I see on renders or master plans of the Palm Jumeirah and surroundings, there is no building planned at the foot of the Palm.

But this is Dubai, so this can have been changed already... ^^

This building is placed at the foot of the Palm. So that's the surroundings of the Palm, isn't it?

^^ If u mean part of the palm by saying surrounding then what ur saying is wrong, the surrounding is Dubai Media City, Dubai Internet City and the Knowledge Village. The palm starts from the beach !

DUBAI, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Dubai-based developer Pearl Dubai said on Wednesday it has awarded a $2.4 billion construction contract to a United Arab Emirates joint venture of Australia's Leighton Holdings (LEI.AX: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz).

"Pearl Dubai ... has awarded an 8.85 billion dirhams ($2.41 billion) main contract for the construction of its Dubai Pearl project, to the Al Habtoor-Leighton Group," Pearl Dubai said.

The statement did not say who the other competitors for the project were.

"While these are challenging times, Dubai Pearl's confidence in the robustness of Dubai's real estate sector remains high," said Abdul-Majeed al-Fahim, Pearl Dubai chairman, in the statement.

Mohamed Alabbar, a Dubai government official and chairman of Emaar Properties EMAR.DU said on Monday the emirate will pull back on its building spree because of the financial crisis.

Pearl Dubai said the deal was the largest single contract of its kind in the Gulf Arab region. Construction is due to begin in January 2009.

The Pearl Dubai development will cover more than 15 million square feet (1.39 million square metres), including four 73-storey towers and a hotel. (Dubai newsroom)






And also a construction picture from about a month ago. Taken from flickr:

I agree! That box on the bottom looks pretty cool. Definitely one of the best Dubai structures I've seen.

This is actually 300m. The source is emporis and also www.ctbuh.org who usually have good sources for their heights.

A lot of work has been done here and this could well become a reality. This is probably the biggest single project in Dubai now.

Wow, this site is going to be busy busy in a couple months. I wish more buildings like this were built in Dubai, simple, elegant, original. We would see amazing buildings. Too bad the Dubai Towers are on hold

i think it is the most interesting building in dubai since the index.
sober, refined, and resolutely modern, this is way better than the ugly neo classical and neo islamic pastiche of the marina.

I don't think this is pretty at all but it will surely be impressive.

a supertall as wide as it is tall makes for a pretty massive structure. probably the biggest in the world.

What do you mean by biggest? Biggest single structure [in skyscraper form]? Biggest in square footage? Biggest in cubic feet/meters? Isn't [are] the Albraj At-Bait Towers technically the biggest in the world? By square footage I mean. And technically both complexes are made up of several towers so it's hard to define what makes what bigger. Ahh! You made me think!

Anyways, I hate the tacky Dubai models. God, why can't they make a decent, good looking model with a lot of quality. It looks like they added some palm and car toys. I also don't like what's on top of the podium. I like some ideas like the wave pool, that's cool. Bur the layout seems so messy and horrific. IMO they should remove that ugly fountain.
