I think this is a thread about Dubai Towers? So I'm answering to the design of the Dubai Towers. These look wierd like an amusement ride. Not everything coming out of Dubai is beautiful.

Also don't say four letter words about other cities and praise Dubai. It looks cheap. Dubai is an emerging city and not a giant metropolis. I really think you are making Dubai out to be a London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, New York, Shanghai, which it is not.

The clown in your avatar has you brainwashed. A whole bunch of tall buildings does not make a great city. Vegas has some quirky designs and Dubai towers look like they belong there. I don't think you understand too easy do you.

Dubai greater than London, HK, NYC, Tokyo, Paris, etc? You believe that? Go ahead.

Your a funny little kid?

Lol Altin!

that "clown" makes sure his people prosper unlike the clown we have in America. So before you call a great leader a clown try researching a little bit what he did for the city and for his people.


I agree with helghast on this.. he is 100% correct. Dubai is catching up faster than you think, America is still poking at an empty hole with construction still below ground level of the WTC for 6-7 years now, and in that time Dubai built 6 manhattans. So IMO Dubai has more financial and economic wealth than most of the cities you mentioned.

Between these posts and you suggesting that Bush says the Burj Dubai is easy to knock down I don't know what to tell you.

Someone is a little sensitive when it comes to Dubai, methinks.

Ugh... whatever, I was referring to the 9/11 conspiracy theory which might be true. Which is UNRELATED to this topic... so is this "debate"

I am not sensitive just stating the facts.

Methinks we went way off topic!
