5/10. The recent 'rip off every over citie's amazig towers' proposal is horrible and makes Dubai look tacky to the extreme

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

Right now it really doesn't impress with all the hype. :/
7/10

But... in the future with all those residential and commercial development, it will probably be a leading world skyline. Better than what happened with Kuala Lumpur

But on google earth Dubai doesn't impress either. :/ Looks too... non-organic-city like.

But don't get me wrong, in the future I would probably vote 10/10

The growing skyline. Will be great once the towers in the financial centre start to rise (in front of the ones in this pic)

your right, as it is far to awsome for the top 20. it is all alown in the world as the #1 skyscraper city of the present day. no city even comes close to the skyscraper art that is going on in dubai. it is by far the: coolest, most mondern, dreamy, futuristic, impressive, invisioned, tallest, bold, amazing, specacular, well concived, and most of all covet spawning city ever. that is why so many hate this city. it is too good for most, so they make up reasons to dislike, or even hate Dubai. they are so dwarfed by what they see in threads like this one that they say stuff like: it looks tacky, dubai is ugly, looks like dysney land, them buildings are to far apart, or it will take 20 yrs to fill in the gaps. well i think it will take 20 yrs to fill the gap between the naysayers ears, because there cant be nothing there, they sure dont have any eyes in between them. face it dubai is building more in one week than other cities are doing in 20 yrs. them empty lots will be gone by the time there cities get one preposal aproved. and when i mean filled, i mean with a real skyscraper of dubai's standerd. that means way nicer, taller, dreamy, bold, and so on, than there stallwart of a city. so say what you will; however that wont change a thing. dubai will still be kicken skyscraper ass way after they get that one crap-assed pussy tower in their oldenday skyline. the real skyscrapers are being built in dubai. the rest of are left to sit back and watch. jeez i sure hope my city actuly aproves that new 60 story tower soon. 2 yrs lattter. geeez i wish they will get on with it. and so on. at least in dubai, when the the boss says do it it gets done. fast like. so i will sit back and watch in amazement. I am so glad that dubai is doing what the rest dont have the balls to even consider. just had to say this stuff because somone has to say it. the naysayers are making me want to barf.

For now, Dubai skyline deserves only 8.5, but next few years, it might pops to 9.5 if everything all falls well in its skyline!
