I really don't like the way they designed the top of this tower...

It looks so unmodern and ugly, i'm not saying that everything should be modern, there are some non-modern good looking buildings but this one is just disgusting

Lol is this the broadcastingroom of a radio station? Like one DJ is in there sending the frequency to the rest of Dubai. That was really my first thought when I saw this, and after that indeed the nest of some birds.

Well I dunno about lined up, but the Three Brothers in Shanghai (Jin Mao Tower, Shanghai World Financial Center and future Shanghai Tower) are all immediately next to each other.

If you're okay with calling 4WTC a supertall (it's 298m), then there's 2, 3 and 4WTC which form a line. But if not, 1WTC is right next to them too, so I think that count

Germans and their humor ... or lack thereof

I just can't get over those huge triangular balconies in the third section of the tower. It makes it look like a giant mace! I think without those the sharp lines would make this a stunner.

each balcony hosts a pool though, which has been a big selling proposition for the people who are actually paying for this thing. the size of the balconies, and the view is nuts.
