Project 018 - Jeddah Kindom Tower


I added pix database update for this project. This is such an awesome project and it looks like it will really be built. It is hard to believe so I still think it is a vision proposal only. However, we will know when construction starts and we start to see the building going up.

Project 018 - Jeddah Kingdom Tower (UPDATE)

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) -- Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal says he will build the world's tallest building in the Saudi city of Jeddah.

Sunday's statement by his firm, Kingdom Holding Company, says the building will be more than a kilometer (3,281 feet) high and will be part of a larger project that will cost 100 billion Saudi riyals ($26.7 billion).

The project, called Kingdom City, will span 23 million square meters (248 million square feet) and will include luxury homes, hotels and offices.

Al-Waleed is a billionaire businessman and member of the royal family.

Project 009 - Nakheel Harbour Tower (Update)

The new name for the "TALL TOWER" is now called "Nakheel Harbour Tower". It was originally called "Al Burj" for the longest time. I think several years it was going by that name. But now it is offical so I needed to update my blog about that.
Update and LINK -> Project 009
Also, I added quite a few new shots for the Album.

Jeddah - Kingdom Tower - New Supertall

The Saudis are trying to beat Dubai for the WTB. It is funny because I remember Nakheel Harbor Tower (AKA " Al Burj") was fighting with Burj Dubai for the title. Now they have to fight against Jaddah Kingdom Tower now.

Project 013 - Anara - The Movie

I created a Video clip of the new supertall Anara. Enjoy!

Burj Dubai - Progress Update


Well, Well, Well! We are almost there!. It looks like the floors are set and now they are working on the very top which I like to call the "Burj Poll". Here is a very cool pix I got from "Ember-To-Ashes" on SkyscraperCity.com of Burj Dubai thread. It must be a bit scary to not only work at those heights but there really is not space to work around in. I would think the people working up there must be paid very well.
Also, I found a cool YouTube Clip that show the current construction at the base. Enjoy!

Project 013 - Anara


Wow! Yet another cool and new supertall arrives on the shore of Dubai.This was presented in Dubai Cityscape2008. It is 120 stories high and about 700meters tall. At first I thought the top part was some big fan since "GREEN" is in and it would generate the power for the building but after looking closer, it is just a static beams. However, the middle part will be a park and restaurant. Now that is too awesome! I have to have lunch up there when it is done!

Project 010 : Burj Dubai Uploaded



There are so many pictures of Burj Dubai now I am not sure where to start. For now I will upload 18 of the most recent and coolest pictures I have found on the net. Also, I created a cool new Jalbum skin for this project. Also, I added music but it eats bandwidth so I might turn it off at some time. Anyway, enjoy Burj Dubai!

Dubai Project 006 - Dubai Sun Tower


I will probably end up with maybe 50+ projects. Although I am labeling the projects with numbers, it will not reflect the order in which I publish them or update them. I have now uploaded Dubai Project 006 - Dubai Sun Tower. This is one of the many cool proposals coming out of Dubai. One more thing, I think I will be setting the pictures on 2 services; Jalbum and Picasa Web Albums. Both have strong points. However, I think Jalbum will be my main site. For now here is the LINK to Project 006.

Under Construction - Burj Al Alam

Here is Burj Al Alam sign at the construction site. It is exciting to watch a supertall being built from the very beginning and watch it grow. I was not able to see Burj Dubai at the very beginning since I did not know about it until it was already like 20 stories high.

Note: ARUP shows up well on the sign as well! :D

Burj Al Alam - The new Mall


My First Blog for Dubaisupertalls.com. I do not know if anyone will be interested in reading what I say but you never know. Anyway, This is probably the best way to provide news of what I find.

For now, Burj al Alam - the corporate mall is already starting to market and do adds. I like this add. It is nice and a slick blue. Will that mall be all blue glass or just a cool photoshop trick? Anyway, I like the cool advertizement.
