What a monster. I wonder how much regulation Dubai has for such tall towers. The towers announced the last few weeks are in a different league than the current towers (almost 50% taller than most other residentials, except Burj Dubai).

great work SA Boy! I know everyone's excited about these developments just as i am but honestly who wasnt disappointed with the designs of all these DM supertalls like this one and Ameera Tower. Aside from the crowns (which are actually getting very repetitive) there seems to be no creativity in these towers at all. I think its better for the designers if they save the few days (maybe hours even) they spent designing the exteriors of these dull buildings and left them plain glass and concrete without the unnecessary random and very tacky touches. They would have looked much better that way. When will they realize that height means nothing if the design looks like crap. I just hate this building and the other similar ones.

oh my
Wish I was there to see some of these !
but you right there are few breaks in the desgin
Feature repeat over and over again
the height is of the charts still.
Marina is going to be a great cluster when viewed from JB Hotel area
that will low over the dusty building of old dubai
Now i ask are these towers testing the water for ever bigger ones ?

it's tall but dubai keeps building with the same style, we need unique towers, not repeats. Height ain't everythin, but again, it's a big one.

Even the most obnoxious repeats in Dubai are far superior to the commie blocks here. At least they have passable facades and cladding at the worst.

Yes but these public housing or similar projects, these are supposed to compete with the most luxurious high-rise residentials in the world like those in Manhattan, downtown Shanghai, Singapore etc where each building is very unique and of the highest quality.

Perhaps, though in any city, even among luxury venues, the majority buildings are inconsequential in design. Manhattan has a boatload of red brick buildings; Shanghai and Singapore their share of luxury commie blocks.

If through these Dubai is inventing a new breed of colorful, glass-clad commie blocks, then that is a positive change.
