in the mid-term about 25 towers should get built in Downtown, counting only serious proposals and buildings that have had recent construction activity.

It's incredible that they have recovered from the Recession enough to be building THAT much! If only the urban planning didn't completely suck!

More like everyone's opinion is allowed. Yet, I don't agree with him.

I just love this photo, not only because it looks amazing but also because the horizon is almost exactly at the 330m mark, allowing for quite precise height calculations. For example, Address BLVD is currently ~355 - 360m tall. We can also see that Fountain Views I is around 215m tall, and FV III (the future supertall) around 140m Also, The 118 is in fact a skyscraper and currently around 210m tall

Those are relatively old pictures, but at least the east mast (spire) has been caped and sealed off on top so unless the beacon isn't incorporated and has still to be added, than we can consider this as topped.

If they can fill up all those plots, alien mothership will strike Dubai first in their interplanetary war against Earth, no longer Manhattan
