What the hell are people talking about? Provided the cladding is of high quality, it will be perfect to have a tower like this stand out. Aside from the dubious advantage of distracting from some of the missteps in the area, a good landmark is one of the defining characteristics of every good skyline.

As, as Dubai Skyscraper says, it will make perfect sense from a bit of a distance. (Though I think it will from up close, too.)

Yea, to throw a huge shadow on Al Attar Tower so that nobody notices it anymore

But in my opinion it looks Beautiful.

It looks massive, none of that ultraslim supertall nonsense!

By the way, what is the name of the slim tower in front of it, on the last render, that almost looks like it's cut in half

That's Park Place.

But in reality it's not that slim from that angle.

Thanks! Yeah, the photoshop looks a little bad. But it truly puts things into perspective, the way this Entisar Tower completely overshadows it

Is it as tall as it looks? Seems to dwarf everything else on SZR

^ 1706 feet is just a little shorter than the spire of One World Trade Center, and is 300 feet taller than anything in the Marina District. I think this will be the second tallest in the city, unless Dubai One (the cable-stayed thing) or something else beats it.

I didn't realise before this one has setbacks. Entisar looks much better from these angles:

This tower looks extremely ugly in the renderings but I think it will look great once complete.

It's not. It won't.

It doesnt. It will not be.

This is an OK'ish design. It's just valid enough to be allright in every sense. It's neither ugly, nor nice. It's exactly a navel inbetween the two extremes.

That's what I'm saying. The design is satisfactory and reasonable. Nothing is extremely stupid, and nothing's worth to create a cult out of.
