How long did this take you? I can only imagine what would have happened if you didn't use thumbnails.

Some nice projects going on, although they need to be as creative with names as they are with buildings

It took about 3 and a half hours. I started last weekend, did nothing during the week as I was busy with loads of other stuff. Then I finished it today.

Dubai Cracks me up,

If Dubai was a person he would be 21 yrs of age, A Multi Billionaire, Have Angelina Jolie as his Sex slave, and would probably walk around public with his pants down cause he wont really give a F**k about anything.

lol
great malec.
as i said in UAE forum please change these things if you find time:

remove one al salam tecom render.
and maybe you can thumbnail all the pictures, some are not,that doesn't look good.
also include websites, at least the main ones like
thepalm.ae
burjdubai.com
businessbay.ae
dubailand.ae
etc.

you could also add a picture of the finished the gate and we have better renders of JBR in its world forums thread.

also dubai pearl is worth an own "section" with more renders, it is not really part of media city.

maybe you could also include heights of all the towers by using this thread:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=178561

btw this is also a quite interesting thread it shows all towers UC and approved in dubai.

there are various towers missing
also make sure to check the non-working pics

on the first view i can say you forgot:
sheffield office tower, hds tower, v3 tower, O2 residence for jumeirah lake towers

marina diamond 5+6 in dubai marina

lol, what makes the list even smaller is that we have many complexes consisting of several towers

good work!

Great work Malec. I actually saw something new, "Oquiana" .

Anyhow, maybe should make a list with the superlatives of Dubai:

- The worlds tallest building
- Worlds tallest all hotel building
- Worlds tallest all residental building
- Worlds largest shopping center
- Worlds largest amusement park
- Worlds biggest artificial islands including; 3 palmshaped islands, the world, the waterfront, Oquiana, and more?
- Underwaterhotel (There is one partially underwater in Florida if i remember correctly, however the one in Dubai is getting larger)
- Modern metrosystem (is it maglev, anyone?)
- Skiing dome (worlds largest indoor skiing facility?)
- Worlds longest skybridge

...

With imageshack if the image is small there won't be any thumbnail available. That's why some of them are not. For version 1.2 I'll add those towers and maybe give more importance to supertalls.
