nakheeltower01 284x400 Tallest Building in Dubai

I can’t say if we are growing up, but I can say we are going up.  Dubai’s new tallest building is called Nakheel Tower.  It will be more than a kilometer high, house 55,000, and be a work place for 45,000.  In an area of the world, almost a world of its own, where beaches are actually air conditioned(what’s the point in going?), multibillion dollar projects seem to pop up like acne on a 14 year old boy’s face.  I think it’s great to be innovative with designs, however I don’t think it’s cute to exhaust  resources and try to be clever with sustainability practices.  Making claims that the building will be ‘creating more space for people to breathe’ by building up rather than out, does not classify this as a sustainable building.  I do appreciate the idea of urbanizing up rather than consuming masses of land, call me Berkeley-Damaged, but if investors such as Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem are spewing billions into a project, why not just be a real leader and make it a true ‘Green Building’?  Check out Nakheels sustainability PR message here.  And read about the company involved in the design, Woods Bagot.  It’s a cool building, but please correct me if I am wrong.
