First of all, great towers

But why call them Dubai towers. Everyone'll get confused in the future. They'll see this and say:

"hey, isn't this supposed to be in Dubai? I thought a massive tower was to be built in Dubai. What about that one in Doha, is that called burj dubai? I see so this one's actually called burj al arab so then the one in Dubai's called Tower of Dubai, so then what about that sail shaped hotel, is it called al arab burj doha dubai?"

Pretty tricky! Very nice. Although it reminds me of the turning torso, it's got a batter elegance to it. With all skyscrapers I love to criticise, if I could point one improvement it would be this. If it blended with the sky a bit more rather than the hieght just coming to a stop it would be great! Still very good though. I look forward to seeing these projects up and running.

It would be better for the skyline if they shifted these towers to the left a bit

here the news from the austrian "der standard"
Quote:
"Dubai Towers" in Istanbul geplant
Höchstes Gebäude der Türkei soll 2008 fertig gestellt werden
Trennlinie
Istanbul - Das mit 300 Metern höchste Gebäude der Türkei soll bis 2008 in Istanbul entstehen. Die Kosten des Projekts, das maßgeblich mit Kapital aus dem arabischen Scheichtum Dubai finanziert werden soll, bezifferte Oberbürgermeister Kadir Topbas am Montag mit 500 Mio. Dollar (416 Mio. Euro).

Die beiden Türme der "Dubai Towers Istanbul" sollen ein Hotel, Büros, Einkaufs- und Vergnügungszentren beherbergen. Das bisher höchste Gebäude der Türkei, die Verwaltungszentrale der Is Bankasi in Istanbul, misst 181 Meter.

Gebaut wird das Hochhaus den Angaben zufolge von einer Immobilien-Investmentgesellschaft, an der Dubai International Properties mit 80 Prozent, die Stadt Istanbul mit 20 Prozent beteiligt ist. Geplant sei, 49 Prozent der Gesellschaftsanteile an die Börse zu bringen, sagte Topbas bei der Unterzeichnung des Abkommens. Bei dem Hochhaus handele es sich um das erste einer Reihe von Immobilienprojekten mit geplanten Gesamtinvestitionen von fünf Mrd. Dollar. (APA/dpa)

Those are previews of the Levent(Istanbul) skyline with the current low quality renderings we have. Made by Eastman.
