Can someone post pics since I don't know of a lot of great lowrises.
Although I really like the jumeirah mosque

BTW, will this competition only have completed buildings or will it count everything?

I don't know what its called but I'm voting for that too. I know it was built by someone from Bin Serkal family (I think one of Nasser Abdullatif sons but not sure) so I've always referred to it as the Bin Serkal building.

Jumeirah Mosque's a good one too

And there's a building (I think belonging to some ministry) in Towar/Qusais area that I quite like. I'll try to find pics
