They are trying to keep these two towers different from the others as they are the luxury apartment towers ....the colours on the models at their show room are completly different from the original colours now on the towers.

not only the tops, as he said, there is a different colour scheme and also the shape is slightly different.

The Al Fattan Marine Towers are breath taking. I love them. The other towers look a litle boring though with the same coloured outside and no real striking appearance.

The amount of scrapers is amazing, but a bit boring in this case.

However, normally I find that Dubai's skyscrapers are original and goodlooking.

They look more like holiday apartment blocks to me so the chances are that people will buy them and then rent them out for most of the year...i bet thats what will happen with the palms as well.
