It's 225m. If you mean it isn't 200m yet, then it will be in a couple of weeks so I guess we can wait. But if that was your point then I'm sure you already knew that, so I'm not sure why you'd invite the 200m+ comparison in the first place.

Lets be honest. If this cluster was somewhere in Europe or America, it would be the epitome of modernist skyscraper architecture, but because it is in an Arab nation, at a time when there is a lot of disgust against Arabs, they are to be detested and ridiculed.

Also, since we're in the neighborhood, the Burj Khalifa can NOT be overrated. Just like the State Empire Building, it is a milestone, a first, and will always remain a symbol of such.

I think the building in Dubai are just normal except few of it are kinda outstanding...
Actually i feel that Dubai is kinda empty... yes they have lots of highrise... but it's like super big office with few worker... unlike new york, london, singapore, hong kong, tokyo... these city are vibrant and you will feel the soul of the city... like last time i went to dubai... like a dead town... i saw only indian working... but i seldom see arabian working...

I have nothing against Arabs, I just dislike such postmodernism.

The only ones I like from there are Infinity and 23 Marina

A bit. Can't say I like the balconies that much, though.

I think the 'underrated' thread makes much more sense than this one.

I think that is a different point. As a supertall cluster I think this is unequaled anywhere in the world. Now if some of the buildings in the cluster are ugly, well that is a different point, and I agree. There are some in that cluster that I don't like, but probably the ones that I dislike, you may like, and I may hate the ones you like. Taste is personal, but the cluster is iconic.

I think you confuse me with someone else, probably with deadhead262 (see previous page(s)). Except for that post, I only wrote something about New York. Not once did I get in an argument ESB vs PTT...
