I will have to talk my wife into a vacation in Dubai when that is finished in 2010. I hope Marriott builds some new hotels there by then since I have about 800,000 Marriott Rewards points to use up.

They remind me a bit of Taipei 101.

They're not ugly...just weird looking.

I agree, they look weird but this just seems to be a style that's unique to Dubai.

They got the height, style ... but for some reason, i just don't like em... they just seem too eccentric for some reason... not in a good way that is..

The renders seem to be done in typical dubai fashion which means:
1: Showing no other towers around
2: Not showing the reflections, etc properly so the render looks cartoony

I'm sure the facade will end up quite different as often happens. Also it needs an improved roof structure since the one now looks tagged on instead of part of the tower.
Those nighttime pics though are

Emirates Park Hotel and all the other buildings, up to Nuaimi tower, should be pushed back by one plot at least. Where you have them now, should be these ones:



... with the towers being right behind them.

I think if these towers were to be built in a different country, they would get a lot of media attention. Imho they are not only very tall, but beautiful as well, very interesting design.
