As its name suggests, in itself, is the Dubai Marina, a city located in the heart of Dubai. The first phase of Dubai Marina is completed, while the remaining work is in progress at a rapid pace. The best of Dubai Marina, is that it is entirely artificial.

I can see why Shanghai Tower and 1WTC are way in the lead. These two have very simplistic yet elegant designs. I'm surprised to see 1WTC over 2WTC though, it seems that most people liked the diamond design of 2WTC and is a favorite of mine, in fact, I think it's the most beautiful building to be built. I have a hard time digesting the other supertalls -- borderline over the top to a bit tacky in my opinion

Voted

1. 2WTC
2. Shanghai Tower
3. 1 WTC

Didn't like the rest quite frankly
