Nakheel Tower Dubai

Nakheel Tower Dubai

Densetsu48
Nakheel Tower is going to be over 1000 meters. It will have over 200 floors. It will have approximately 150 lifts. The design structure of four separate elements allows for structural rigidity while also allowing the wind to pass freely in the spaces between the skybridges reducing the overall wind load. Total volume of concrete will be 500,000 m³. All of the reinforcing bars laid end to end could stretch from Dubai to New York (1/4 of the way around the world). The tower will have 20 km of barrettes – (almost 400 barrettes). Barrettes are a form of pile used to make the foundation. A single foundation barrette has the capacity to support a 50 storey building. The building has enough cooling capacity to air-condition over 14,000 modern homes or to service 14 luxury resort hotels each with 2,000 rooms and all the public areas and amenities. The building is so tall that it experiences five different microclimatic conditions over its height, each with individual design features. The temperature in the atmosphere at the top of the building can be as much as 10 degrees cooler than the bottom. Due to the high speed shuttle lifts one may be able to see the sunset twice from the bottom and again from the top of the building. The goal is to achieve the highest LEED certification we can for a building this size. There will be approximately 10,000 car parking spaces in Nakheel Tower. Nakheel Tower and podium combined will be in excess of 2 million m².
