1 Dubai was a complex of three skyscrapers proposed for Jumeirah Garden City in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Tower 1 would have been the tallest and Towers 2 and 3 much shorter. Although the planned height was never officially released, various heights over 600 m (2,000 ft) were suggested,[1][2] with the intention to be taller than Burj Khalifa which was under construction at the time. The complex was designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, and the developer was Meraas.[1][3]

The structure of the building would have been connected by a series of glass skybridges and at the base of the skyscraper there would have been grand arched entrances, that would have allowed boats to travel underneath the building and into a central atrium space.[3] The mixed-use development would have included a hotel, residential, commercial, retail and entertainment space totaling over 800,000 m2 (8,600,000 sq ft).[3] In March 2009, the project was cancelled.[1]
