The exterior reminds me of the Jin Mao building. These are definetly some of Dubai's best towers. Can't wait to see them complete.

A few years down the road, I can easily see Dubai becoming a haven for Sci-Fi films due to its futuristic looking skyline.

I wonder when Dubai will get destroyed in a movie, I mean New York and Los Angeles has been destroyed enough times.

But seriously, these towers are looking awesome

this is going off that each floor=4m.
roof is approx 300m. the top section equals about 6 typ floors.
im guessing mast will be about 40m high to reach 365m.

Something similar has been done, although not in a real movie just yet - check out the trailer for this video game...

Stunning project. Should be branded Four Seasons instead of Marriott Marquis.

Agreed, but I want to see the twins next to them u/c again as well. The twins I am refering to are the Tiara United Towers. Two sets of twins next to each other will be interesting. I guess they intended to pull a Chongqing move on us.

Word is they will re-start soon, and some scafolding erected around the top beams in one of the towers, shows that it might be true and eminent indeed.

Four Seasons is elsewhere in Dubai, in Festival City, opposite side of the Creek from the D1 tower ... and no money to actually build it.
