8.5/10 Nice without being super impressive. In 10 years or so I think it will be in the world top 10, maybe even 5.

i love the designs on those highrises of dubai, very cool but on many pictures it looks like all tower are build on a long lane on one street so it will make it look empty behind them .... like a wall...8/10

In world's scale it's 8/10, but because it's built in a desert I'll rate it 9/10. The speed of development of this city is really shocking

Right now Dubai is pretty nice with some interesting buildings. It has a lot of potential though and in the future it looks like it could possibly rank right up there with Hong Kong. I give it an 8/10 for now.

I like it. Like many of you, I think that this city's skyline will be more prominent in the future.

7/10

This will be a great skyline in the future. Pretty darn good now. Its a little two narrow, maybe needs a little depth in the buildings, but the buildings themselves are each individually great. , but not enough, and not spaced enough to get really good marks. For its size, though, Dubai is a great city.

A few incredibly nice buildings. I like the futuristic architecture. But is it just me, or does this city lack balance? From some of the skyline shots, a tall building surrounded by shorties. Although the new tower will just be incredible, will it not just prove my observation again. I like the city but the gaps horizontally and vertically bar me from giving it higher than 6.5.
