D1 (meaning Dubai Number One) is an 80-floor residential skyscraper currently under construction in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The tower has a total structural height of 284 m (932 ft), but the design originally included a spire that would bring the total height to 350 m (1,150 ft). Construction of D1 is expected to be completed in 2011. The tower is the sister of the world's tallest residential building, Q1 in Gold Coast, Australia. Although they will look similar, D1 will be structurally shorter, whilst having a taller roof height. This is because Q1 has a roof height of 275 m (902 ft) with a spire increasing the total height to 323 m (1,060 ft).
D1 will feature skyrise lounge, private cinema, indoor pool, gymnasium and concierge services. D1 is adjacent to the Palazzo Versace Dubai.
