yes, dimensions, i know, but they seem to be very uncooperative

neb has a lot of projects in dubai, really nice ones and doesn't have a website
but one seems to be reserved. www.nebureau.com

height doesnt define beauty.
i still think NY and HK have an edge over Dubais upcomming towers in design.

I didn't say height = beauty.

But buildings in Dubai (planned or completed) are in general far more elegant than those in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing and other cities in Asia.

Incredible building, nice design though the mid parts of the tower is quite boring.

I love the design, simple and futuristic.
Fits very well in Dubai.

i agree NY s beauty is in its heritage but Hk has none and is littered with tragic cloned unit blocks. half a dozen bldgs are worth mentioning.
Dubai are lucky, they are starting from scratch with devlopers and world class archiects presenting new modern towers with no limits to height or funding.! a skyscraper fans dream!
