Your favourite (Future) Dubai Tower?

My top Five would consist of:

1. Ocean Heights



2. Abbco Rotana Hotel



3. Chelsea Tower




4. Almas Tower




5. Al Durrah Tower




-----------------------

Notables: Badriya Tower was always my favourite but it's now cancelled, the tower with the huge eye on top, and the new supertall but I haven't seen a render for it yet.

Aldurah or Ocean Heights. They're not like some others that might look alright in renderings, but strange in real-life.

i vote for Ocean Heights and Al Durrah Tower. they are looking very original and they are different from the other projects. maybe because they are not so symetrical and a bit crooked...

A lot of people don't seem to like this tower, but its definately my favourite in Dubai, currently going by the name of 'Unnamed Residential Tower' - you probably would have put it on the poll if had a name eh Travis?

My favourite is The Index. Dubai will have many slim and tall towers, but The Index is just huge. I will have a much bigger impact than many of the much taller, but slim buildings. It will have some huge floorplates above 1000 feet.

This buidling is not tacky and it is not a spire cheater.
