This design could only work in an Arabian city. It's not too bad, but at the same time, not totally inspiring.

gosh it looks green in dubai has it been raining? or as someone been a bit too optimistic with the photoshopped grass??
Oh and the towers pretty bad..yet another isolated tower with no relation to its surroundings or public realm commitment, with faux arabian ( supposidly) motifs. Doesn't anyone want to see each other in this city apart from each others apartment windows?

the tower is not going to be isolated - in fact it's going to be part of the dubai marina (over 200 towers) and is going to be placed on what is being tipped as the tallest block on the planet (4 supertalls).

I don't think is that bad, And I think most people here don't think the land of Dubai and it's awsome skyscrapers are bad,
I just have problem with a very fundamental reason - goverment subsidizing economy, a prue economy mirage. If you want to know why I think that way... most people in the world have account or credit card from the US banking, truck load of cheap stuffs made in China, TV, car and PS2 from Japan and Foods and clothings from Europe. I just can't name "ONE" thing what Dubai is well know for to support all the monsters that this, and YES! Dubai have oil but it will run out VERY soon and it have not a lot of light or heavry industry to support a hub like Dubai.
It is like she just won a 400T dollors "oil" lotto,she just want to build herself a world class city, she know she don't need it right now but "hopefully" she need it 20 years from now and "hopefully" she can support it down the road.

I only have one thing to say - Good Luck On Hopefully!

This picture is cool but old.

-Najd Tower is replaced by Elite Residence. Higher than Najd.
-Marina 101 is not in the picture
-Sulafa Tower is not include also

You should know who has the biggest mirage economy in the world, since you are living in it.

The building is okay in my opinion, and I have to admit the top is perhaps not the nicest, but it is traditional, so if you saw a photo of that building, you'd know it is is Dubai.
