The post-modern tympana are shaping well. Princess Tower's facade with the repetitive pattern really gets more variety towards the top.

I think the spire is around 15m, the dome around 25, so combined close to 40m.

Build any one of these towers in almost any city in the world and it will become an icon. But, all these towers in the same block is terribly ugly?

I don't necessarily agree with that. I think these would really only fit in in Dubai. I feel that because most of these are still under construction that we can't really judge how they'll look in the end. I'm warming up to the cluster more and more each day, but I don't think it's unique style could fit in anywhere.

In my views, these towers aren't bad looking. These building represents a skyscraper design typical for the region. In contrast to a lot of skyscraper designs you could find in every part of the world.
I only find the concept of the "tallest block of the world" awkward.
The supertalls don't stand out. And even on higher floors the view is not that great because of the neighbour buildings. Also the silhouette would by nicer, if the supertalls have a bigger distance to each other and some smaller fillers would stand between them.

The one Penthouse on top together with all the "penthouse units" with the round balconies above the 80th floor have been sold out long ago.

A few 1,2 and 3 bedroom untis are available through Tameer. Otherwise secondary market.
