Dubai's 3rd skyline - Dubai Marina (banner size)

[IMG]http://i12.************/6z3ygwm.jpg[/IMG]

Imagine that in the centre-left side of the pictures at least 9 supertalls will rise (including 3 x 400m+ and 1 x 500m+) and 5 - 6 in high 200m range.

Below is the original Imre's pick from where I cropped the banner posted above. Don't mind the sand pit in the foreground: That's Palm Jumeirah and beach side Hotels will be build soon there.

Let me see:

The Pentominium: 120F, 513m
Damac Heights: 90F, 460m (they might have removed some floor, but still it should be above 400)
The Princes: 101F, 414m
Marina 101: 101F, 412m
23 Marina: 80F, 395m
Elite Residence: 90F, 380m
The Torch: 82F, 345m
Infinity: 90F, 330m
Ocean Heights: 90F, 310m

Sulafa: 75F, 285m
MAG 218: 275m
Marina Pinacle: 260m
Madain Hotel: unknown but in high 200

There are still 4- 5 plots in that part of the Marina and there should be at least a couple of more supertalls to come.

I don't like Dubai skyline. It's very artificial.

You're right, where I come from the skyline is natural ... and taller: 1612 meters from the sea level.
