Well, if ongoing piling is "nothing" for you , then "nothing" has really happened all these time.

I wasn't really a fan of these until I saw that render on the first page of this thread. Looks great.

Also, can someone fix the thread title? Says completed. I hope they're not completed yet. Not as impressive as I was hoping for.

This probably wouldn't look that good as an isolated structure but should work well as part of Dubai's supertall jungle.

Check the UAE forum for that. These towers will be exactly alongside the canal.

I love them! So gritty and caricaturely, like something out of a comic book. Wouldn't fit anywhere except in Dubai. There's something very depraved in designs like this, not a single trace of dignity, and that's what makes it great, because it really gets built and people are going to work there and live around the buildings.

And European tourists are going to spend memorable nights in there (is a hotel)

I wouldn't mind the bar on top. The views fom the Vu's at Emirates Towers Hotel are already fantastic, and here it will be even (much, much) higher
