In fairness only 2-3 people have said that. But indeed those people should look at the facts a little more.

Anyway, another stunning project for Abu Dhabi. It's nice to see other parts of the UAE getting some recognition .

Wow lots of cool skyscrapers! The four connected one is weird though.

I also am a hater of the fake skyline. But oh well.

Skylines don't get drawn up and built all togther in one go. A skyline should come up on its own over the course of many years. This is a forced/fake skyline coz it is planned from A-Z. AD current skyline is what you'd call a real skyline, NY skyline is a real one and so on.

theres no such thing as a forced skyline.
the fact that so buildings being built at once simply means the skyline is developing at a much larger scale at a much faster pace.

Thats my thinking! I dunno, it just seems fake. Like one of those places that are too perfect you feel something is wrong. There is no hm... whats the word... chaos? Thats probably not it. Anyways its just meh to me! Not that I'm saying the buildings dont look nice.

these cities look so strange to me. im not saying they should not be or whatever. there is just a feeling of over planing to it. it does not seem at all like and organic city like most European and some us cities... it just looks faux.
