Dubai Towers Instanbul and Infinity Towers Dubai, have nothing in common.

They are from different developers and designed by different architects, so please stop refering to them both in the same sentence.

Overall shape is a bit too similar to turning torso but the details are very different. I like it now.
Another twisting tower! I love it

I hate twisting towers. They're already cliche, but the crown on this one magnificent.


It's too bad all the other towers in that rendering are so far apart. It makes it look way to artificial and strangely un-urban.

please be aware that renderings never show you the actual surroundings
this one is going to rise in a cluster of the 2 world's tallest residential towers

there are several 300m + and various 200m+ and at least one 400m+ right next to it

it is only one piece of the new skyline which is currently under c
it consists of about 300 towers

the render suggest nothing

here is the actual version how the area looks like at the moment,
do not forget two rows of about 40 towers each are totally missing.

night shot from 215m al seef tower, the tallest block with worlds tallest and 2nd tallest res in front



the tower will rise next to the massive one (3rd from left)

I mightve said this before. But I think SOm just reused the old WTC design and put a new facade over it.
