Uptown Dubai - A super tall tower

Photos taken 6 months and 3 months apart this year and no sign of Covid slowing this development down.
All I can find online is that they are building a super tall tower, with apartments, offices and boutiques.
I'm in Dubai until the end of January and back out in March, will be interesting to see how much more it grows out of the sand.

The building has currently reached 153ms and will be over 300ms tall when complete. It will have 81 floors and is due to be completed in 2022.

  3. They don't hand about in Dubai. The buildings seem to go up so quickly.
    There has been someone building a garage for over a year here. I see it on the way to my dad's and there has been little progress over the last few months at all. x

  7. Incredible speed they work at, even the roads seem huge. They have planned for the increase in traffic it seems too.

  10. They do love a good construction project in Dubai don't they? Will be interesting to see if there is any medium or long term impact on Dubai thanks to COVID.

    1. Well it’s currently very quiet here due to covid at the moment but it’s not stopping them build just yet

  11. Wow that sure is shooting up fast, always amazes me how fast buildings go up in normal times, building work hasn't ceased in the field behind our house either since Covid started
