The best ones of those are the Sun tower and the old dubai pearl design (why didn't they keep it the way it was)

Actually Siopao, that is the rendering Elliot made himself. Dubaiflo, those are some Stunners, I can truly say the only one I dislike is the huge complex.

LBT is nice, and it will look better in flesh than any rendering. I wouldn't mind having a tower like that in my eyeline.
