Malec and me (Dubai Addiction) are making a model from the tallest block located in the Dubai Marina with some help from other forumers to have an impression of how it will look like when construction is done there. Here is a render of the tallest block >>>

Next tower which will be imported in the model is Marina Crown.

!!!To watch the progress visit the Dubai 3D thread in the Dubai section!!!

Once the Dubai Marina is full of supertalls, it will be like a scene from a sci-fi movie. Incredible!

Well, there certainly is enough space when you see photos from up close. Anyway, who cares about a garden when you have your own private beach!

Also if you did your research you would know that the palm islands are actually higher than mainland dubai so in the case of sea level rise the main city gets flooded first.

It's people like you that make me ashamed to be an American sometimes...


USA ALL THE WAY!
Seriously, not all of us (less than one half for sure) are like David Earl. BTW, no, Malec is not an idiot, you are, cause you can't read. But with projected global warming numbers the palms won't stand a chance a few hundred years from now, but I and the rest of you will be long dead by then, unless I can manage to pull off a Ricky Bobby, in which case "With modern science, and my high level of income, it ain't crazy to think that I can live to be 220, 225."
