Superb picture of the booming business bay!
But with 5 MB wayyyyy too big IMO... loading took almost 10 minutes on the old PC I'm working at. It can be easily reduced to around 1 MB without significiant loss of quality or size (e.g. by saving once more with simple graphic programs like Microsoft Paint). Would be kind if you could replace it, Axel_F

But back to topic: for the first time, Emirates Park Towers have an impact to appear with the downtown skyline in background. I think the cores are at 25th or 26th floor - what a nice progress now!

Ups!... Sorry for the large pic and the circumstances!

In the Burj Dubai thread you also find a view to the emirates towers from safa park. It must be a amazing view to the towers when they completed!

Now it's perfect, dankeschön...
Quetschluft rules! It's good that sometimes you divers come out of the depth to take some skyline shots

And Emirate Park Towers surely will dominate that view from 2009 on (exept for BD of course), until Burj al Alam and others will overtake them (hopefully).

This towers have one of the most exceptional designs that I've seen...the facade with the overhanging balconies is very interesting, as well the top part, which looks a little bit like a rounded pagoda...though I think that the spires don't really fit well to this design.

Btw that's a great pic that Axel F posted ...on it Dubai's skyline already looks like its one of the top 5 worldwide, and I'm sure its not gonna be a long time until Dubai gets there. (Now its in the top 10 definitely, but maybe not quite in the 5 best worldwide)...but when Burj Dubai and Pentominium as well as all the other supertalls currently U/C will be finished, I'm sure that Dubai will be no.1

I love the design of these towers, they are modern and go with a particular form.
When will be completed?

This project kind of reminds me of Marina City in Chicago-- on mushrooms.

I like it.
