AEDAS. yeah, the smaller one reminds me of the old Media City Damac HQ which is now in AD. the taller one looks awesome, does it increase in size like 1BB or is it just the perspective?

Let's just hope this thing is easily buildable unlike ocean heights (also designed by aedas). Their designs always look great but they rarely seem the most practical.

Better render taken from the website:

Great buildings but some are so silly for the sake of being different i.e. Dancing Towers???

Marina 101 I like best.

Go to emporis.com compare new york and chicago and Miami.Some one on here mentioned new york chicago and dubai.Why did they leave out Miami? Miami has way more buildings under construction than chicago .New york has alot but most are shorties.Miami has the most buildings under construction approved and proposed over 600 ft over 500 ft. and over 400 ft for that matter. I thought there would be more people with brains in here.or do I have to show the source? remember people my passion is facts.
