True, Dubai will never beat Manhattan for many reasons. First of all, Dubai only has one generation of buildings and not a dozen like New York. In NYC they squeeze every new tower on a tiny plot in between older buildings. In Dubai they have more than enough space and build huge malls and wide streets killing the density. Dubai uses a lot of space for landscaping like the Burj Lake, Old Town in Downtown Dubai, Business Bay Canal, etc. and builds developments filling an area as big as midtown with villas only. It will take a long time until Dubai has to start demolishing other buildings to have space for new ones

Portions of Dubai are much denser than portions of Manhattan, its just manhattans small area and long history of building tall. Master planning also plays a major role, Manhattan has no villas, no malls and no larger Plots. However at this rate of speed Dubai's definitely a competitor to New York's density and if construction in the emirates continues at the speed its currently at there's no doubt that in a few decades areas of Dubai will have a greater density than Manhattan.

This might sound obvious but Downtown Dubai finally looks complete. Give it a couple more years and it'll have a similar density as the Dubai Marina (hopefully without any traffic congestion).

With these empty plots I don't think it looks complete. They don't have to built a tower on them but some landscaping would'nt hurt.

I don't think the owners of those empty plots are willing to put some greenery there instead of making a few millions... or investers willing to plurge millions on plots just to plant some trees and plants in a desert.

They indeed did, but a month ago. They are no supertalls though.

No. The fire is in THE ADDRESS DOWNTOWN DUBAI which is a completed tower. It was completed years ago. The address the BLVD is topped out but there is no fire there.

Can this thread please return to topic? You can discuss the Address Downtown fire to all extent in the local UAE forums, but please keep it out of the unrelated Address BLVD's thread. Thank you.
