Dubai does remind me of Coruscant. Very unique and TALL buildings everywhere. Also the funny thing is that I didn't even know this was under construction. If it was being built in my city it would be making the news headlines.

Hmm..I think it looks alright. Not bad..not good. But it would look awful anywhere else.

Btw..which version is getting built?

I'm more in love with the 21st Century Tower at night shot. Beautiful.

I agree. Hong Kong and Shanghai have some exotic looking towers and this one will fit in really well. Honestly I don't like the way it looks in the rendering but I know it will turn out great when it's finished.

Bah..I loved the rocket ship design of the older version. Owell. Still a pretty tower nonetheless.
