the dubai designs are improving. there is still a lot of trash architecture, but some projects are very classy. I really like ocean heights.

Well, out of those towers there are a few I don't personally like.
Those are the unnamed res tower, 23 marina, not a huge fan of emirates hotel, princess tower and marina gardens. I wouldn't call these trash designs but they're certainly not great.

If you look the marina gardens, najd tower, princess tower and the abco rotana hotel look freakishly similar. That's one thing I don't really like. It's fine for 150m towers but NOT for supertalls.

BTW I love the Emirates towers, burj dubai, al durrah and almas tower.

Oh yeah, and don't forget the newly added Burj lake hotel. It's a pretty class building too

NY doesn't need extravagance to make a name for itself. Some of Dubai's buildings are beautiful (Burj Hotel comes to mind), but others are tacky, like the 40 towers u/c somewhere that all look alike and even the Burj Dubai.

^ There is no comparison because most of the skyscrapers in New York or any place in the world are extremly ugly. Dubai has always compter itself for the most beautifull skyscrapers in the world. It doesnt deny that some of the towes arent that good.

As malec have said I dont need to be so harsh

^ Also:

Khalid Al Attar Tower 260m
Damas Twins Towers 200+
Burj Dubai Lake Hotel 300m
ABBCO Rotana (The Rose) Hotel 333m

There are several 200+ and even 300+ approved for DIFC (Dubai International Financial Center)

I want to clarify that 23 Marina and MAG218 (not mentioned in that list) haven't started construction yet, even that the contractors are appointed. 23 Marina will be build by Multiplex.
