Why do u guys always have to drag that crime infested city into every dubai thread

Dubai is Unique , we have suprassed NY on so many levels , and we will continue to do so in the future

I love Mangos and Bananas , both are tasty , but will they ever taste , smell , and feel the same

damned ignorant idiots

Dubai is booming like mad, but it can never be compared to New York City. NYC is in an entirely different league.

New York city is an entirely different city. There are a millions things Dubai has that NY will never have , no matter how hard it works at it , and the same applies for Dubai and any city in the world

NY being used as a standard in every thread is an insult to any city really , i mean who the hell cares. Duba is Dubai , tokyo is tokyo and monaco is monaco , why do u guys keep comparing cities , its impossible to compare cities.

You cant find what Duba iis doing now in any city in the world of its size , not even for the next 100 years i presume , because dubai is risking a lot and crossing its fingers to succeed , no city in the world can afford such high risks and frankly dont have the balls to do so

I think all towers except for the proposals have links now so the thread's pretty much finished. Only thing left is to sort out the proposals in terms of height and speaking of proposals, we've found some of the weirdest designs for supertalls:

I really don't know what to think of this one. Is it good or not? So strange. 93-storey


Erotic 101-storey fortune tower


These twins seem to be a cross between petronas and tower of russia. Don't really like this one too much.



One out of these might get built but which one?

Well, we need better pics. These are just concept designs at the moment (except the first one) so I won't judge until we see something better.

"I really don't know what to think of this one. Is it good or not? So strange. 93-storey"

Depends on in which environment you put it, in other words, which location. May suit very good in Dubai Waterfront.

SZR is better for brigheter scrapers.

But why all those white dots on the first one? Would like it better without it. more stylisticly pure.

The first one looks like something out of a Starwars movie, and the Erotic is actually pretty cool from what I see from the rendering. Hopefully it is that colorful.

I think Culwulla will make a construction diagram only for Dubai, same way as how he does it for tallest towers in the world, and all the Aussie towers aswell.

the first one is strange yet unique but scary

The middle structure .. that is thinner ... that makes me scary.
can be a good target for terrorist using plane to hit this part

instead, a prime plot on SZR has been boarded and fenced

you should change the proposals' heights because some are / could be obviously taller than 100m
