BTW have you seen the new kickass tower we randomly found today?



Not supertall but still pretty tall. 54 floors high.

a small impression of the dimensions of one of dubai's new skylines, namely dubai marina, jumeirah lake towers and media city

i was playing on the montgomerie golf course today and took my camera with me

too bad, i'm about 4km to 5km away from the skyline and can't take ONE photo of the whole thing

left part
[IMG]http://************/fdbt3n.jpg[/IMG]

and incl a few towers on the right
[IMG]http://************/fdbubn.jpg[/IMG]


and from far out the whole thing
watch the villas, they're as large as a whole street block
[IMG]http://************/fdbuqr.jpg[/IMG]

sorry, for crap quality, but had to take them in a rush, no time, my focus was on the game

from the clubhouse you can also see the whole thing, much closer than this
and at night all lights are on, some buildings enlighted

guys, this is jaw-dropping at night, but beware, this is only 20% of what will be built
in 5 years it'll rock big time


i wish i could have provided you with a panorama night shot from the 18th hole

this is a place called heaven. the 18th hole is on an island with tons of palms, plants with a view over the whole skyline enlighted at night

i play here regularly, and it always has grown a little bit

It'll be great when all the JLT start rising since most of them are at ground level with only a few that are over

Why don't they use a more correct background for some of these renders. There's no way Shangri-La is behind that building if it's in DIFC.

actually there is, though it will never look like in the render, no doubt.
but have you ever seen a render which is really true?
