Look, up in the sky – is it a bird? A plane? No, it’s what will be Dubai’s second tallest building.
Adding to its collection of towering skyscrapers, the emirate will be building a 570 metre residential tower.
Azizi Developments are set to start building its tallest project yet on Sheikh Zayed Road later on this year. It is due to complete in 2022
It will have residences on the first 100 floors and a hotel across 22 levels.
Atkins architectural firm is finalising the design of the 122-storey skyscraper, which will cost Dhs3 billion.
Dubai already boasts seven of the world’s tallest residential towers.
Mirwais Azizi, chairman of Azizi Developments, said to Gulf News: “this tower will reinforce Dubai’s position as a global powerhouse for real estate, luxury and tourism as well as add to its appeal as the leading destination for some of the most iconic skyscrapers in the world.”
The city has also recently opened the tallest hotel in the world, The Gevora Hotel.
It’s getting harder and harder for the rest of the world to keep up with our beloved towering city.
