Dubai has plans for the A C Towers

The AC Towers is a cluster of three supertowers rising above 100 stories and are connected at the base with an atrium, and skybridges. Being a mixed use project, it spreads over an area of 800,000 to 900,000 square meters and comprises residential, commercial, hotel, and entertainment space, with a capacity to accommodate upto 6000 people. A canal and waterway that pass through the AC Towers will create open space for educational and theatrical activities.

These towers will stand out among all the other towers currently being developed in Dubai, due to their eco-friendliness, sustainability, energy efficiency and intelligent building systems.

According to new technology being employed, the buildings will draw air from the top floors that are 10 degree cooler and will spray them to lower levels where the temperature is higher. This unique technique has never been employed in any other supertowers in the world to date.

The new buildings have been so designed that they save energy by 40 to 60 percent and get zero level in energy consumption. Completion ???
