New icon in Dubai's skyline
Burj Jumeira supertall skyscraper will rise from fingerprint of Dubai's ruler
Visuals have been released of the SOM-designed Burj Jumeira, a 550-metre-tall split-volume skyscraper in Dubai that will rise from a lake shaped like the fingerprint of the emirate's ruler.
Unveiled by state-owned Dubai Holding, the supertall skyscraper has been dubbed as the "new icon in Dubai's skyline".
Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), it will be located near the city's waterfront opposite the Sheikh Zayed Road and form the centrepiece of the new Downtown Jumeira district, which is also being masterplanned by the architecture studio.
