I like to see you building a 414 meters tall tower and have less then 150 - 200 m2 of land for the footprint and materials storagge, and then come up with a better way of keeping the site tidy, in order and with a lot of spare room to manouvre.

He said "another" ... however I doubt that Princess 2 will be a supertall, I don't even think it will be a skyscraper, propably just a highrise.

Dubai is famous for buildings like that, but if you would put that building somewhere else like NY, Paris, London, or even Moscow, this building will look hidious.

i dont know. i reckon it would look good anywhere. at 414m it would dominate the NYC skyline. its nearly as tall as ESB.

It's tall, but I don't know about the design. I'm just not feeling it

Wow, that kinda puts it in perspective for me how ridiculous Dubai is right now. It's funny to think of the towers on the tallest block as the "smaller" projects going on when they are all at least the height(to roof/spire anyways) of the absolutely enormous Empire State Building. They would dominate in any other city.

If i remember correctly a lot of people weren't "feeling" Rose Rotana tower either, When only the renders were available. Once topped out this one is going to drop some jaws just like the rose did. Book it.
