Unbelievable Dubai Towers

Amazing Tourist Attractions for you and your eyes in the world for this summer to watch the Towers in Dubai, It is a four tower complex to be built in the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The developer, Sama Dubai, intends this to form the centerpiece of The Lagoons, a mega project located on Dubai Creek which will consist of seven islands. The towers have between 57 to 94 stories and although the heights are not known, it is believed the tallest will top 400 meters (1,310 ft) while two others will rise beyond 300 meters (980 ft). Sama ECH was the Project Management Company in charge of the project. Due to downturn in Dubai the project has been put on hold.

Dubai Towers Istanbul contains a Twin-tower complex which was to contain extensive office space, residential apartments and penthouses, retail outlets and boutique hotels. Had it been completed, the towers would have become the two tallest buildings in Turkey. Tower 1 was expected to reach a height of more than 300m (103 floors) and Tower 2 over 250m (81 floors). The site for the project was the former IETT Bus Garage, on Büyükdere Avenue in the financial district of Levant. This prime plot of land is located amongst many of Istanbul's current crop of skyscrapers - across the road from the Sapphire of Istanbul (Turkey's current tallest building), and will reach 261m in height.

Dubai Towers - Doha is a Super-tall Skyscraper with a roof height of 400 m (1,300 ft) (Spire height 437 m (1,434 ft)) under construction in Doha, Qatar. The estimated cost of Dubai Towers - Doha is 2.3 billion Qatari Riyal (US$620 million). When completed, the structure will be the tallest building in Qatar. Located in the West Bay district of Doha, next to the Doha Corniche, the 84-story Multi-use tower is being developed by Sama Dubai, formerly known as Dubai International Properties, the international real estate investment and development arm of Dubai Holding.

When completed in 2011, the mixed use tower will include a 7,000 m2 (75,000 sq ft) retail area, 13 floors comprising a 225-room five-star hotel, 29 floors of office space and 31 floors containing 226 luxury apartments and three Super Luxury Penthouses. The project is now severely delayed as a result of the financial crash in Dubai. Investors in the property have been advised that the building is 9 months behind schedule. However, in May 2010 only 29 of the proposed 84 stories had been built. At normal building rates this would suggest at least a 3 year delay until final completion.

The Wave Tower is a proposed 92 floor super tall skyscraper for the Madinat Al Arab district of Dubai Waterfront in Dubai, United Arab Emirates designed by the Spanish architecture firm A-cero. It is planned to be 370 meters (1,214 ft) tall and is designed to be a green energy building. It is planned to begin construction in late 2009. It tries to create a dynamic way while a geometric shape rises and twists, like a wave, like the use in the bottom of the form of the pointed arch that extends as evoking waves of the sea, hence its name. It is covered with a double glass skin to control sunlight and with a white silk screened glass facade.
