I am amazed of things going on at Jumeirah beach. What's really bring this kind of development to sprout out so huge and fast? Does Dubai has an unimaginable super fast take up rate, of these thousands of apartments in a short time? Could somebody clear my doubts? I need evidence by statistic means to explain to many people concerns as well.

the attention to detail in Dubail's architecture is non exsistent

it builds third class architecture by the masses (with very few exceptions) and then promotes itself as a first class city,(with little consideration to the environment)


thats it I am done

I'm also amazed by those gigantual skyscraper-cluster development scales in Dubai aswell, but what has comes to my attention lately is what I just realized that those kind of things going on everyday in Hongkong, China or even in Korea but they'r just too common and not being well-promoted like those in Dubai, or maybe because most buyers of Dubai property market are British and westerner investers so makes those more promoted?

For this as an example, some projects in Busan, Korea. The scale is no less smaller infact.





or even this, in Bangkok suberb

Chad ur so right... this scale of projects is all over HK all the time... for those that only knows about the Union Square rite now, the parts of the US project are only typical scale... it's a shame no one has posted up the projects that are set to be constructed above the new line of railway stations coz those are HUGE projects...

HK, busan, Bangkok or major long established cities have the masses to absorb the surging supplies of new residences... but in Dubai, where the hell r they going to get thousands of new residents in a short time? Dubai is just an evolving baby city...

15 yrs ago, its population was just below 300,000. thats makes dubai case so unique. as i see it, the theory ' money can buy anything' works well only in dubai.

It'isnt part of of Emmars project, but if asked where it is, everyone would say 'the marina' so, once all apartments have been sold off and emmar take a back seat, it will become pat of the marina.

I was thinking mostly of how stained and dirty the concrete on those towers looked now, could jbr end up like that in a few years?

That picture is pretty bad. I don't think those towers look so ugly.

It'll look pretty bad I think. Mass production like this always looks bad. At least we'll have the Al Fattan towers in the middle to spice things up

taxidermista if stories of the jbr developers cutting corners on quality are to be believed then it could look that bad in a few years, they dont look very appealing even now so imagine 10 years down the line??
