I know a lot of people think that many of the skyscrapers in Dubs are tacky and ugly and I do agree but when they are all together it makes sense.

Those who do (i.e. having local and traditional design elements) are called ugly, tacky, kitsch etc .... I guess people can't get satisfied

Yes, but the '1 tower deep' skyline only goes for around 2 km

Its funny if its a lowrise, because they have a tower crane on site. Why would they need a T. C.? is there a render for it?

does anyone have any idea how strong Sheikh Zayed road towers and marina towers are against earthquakes? It is most probably not the right threat to ask this question but it keeps on popping in my mind every time I check Dubai's threats!

All buildings in uae are earthquake proof. As for fireproof facade, not sure about that one in the past...
