Dubai hosts the highest number of the world’s tallest towers

Dubai:The world’s tallest residential building — the 414 metres Princess Tower — has been delivered by its developer Tameer, following years of preparation, financing and construction over the last four years of economic downturn that wiped off many other projects.

There is a beautiful symetry to that entire block of buildings. Perhaps no block of buildings worldwide looks better than these. Too bad every picture of the block is ruined by that horrid twisting thing being build next to it. They need to stop building that now and tear it right down to the ground, lol.

completely disagree. The tallest block in my opinion is a stupid concept and the architecture is mediocre. That 'horrid twisting thing' is the only redeeming tower!

I am sorry but I just don't like it. It's nothing special and the design is very plain. But then again, it is just my opinion. Some people like it, some do not.

Lat's hope that they're right, I've just been reading this from a year or two ago, and it doesn't paint a very rosy picture.
Obviously you guys who live there will be best able to judge whether it's accurate or not.

I am looking for an apartment to buy in this one. Marina or gulf view preferred. I will consider only very high floors.

Marina 101 will look strange not being a black blob looming over everything else.
