Mosltly are vision and the aerea is still mostly a sand patch with construction sites spread on it, however 6 of them are U/C with one already topped up.

I don't like most of the buildings in Dubai, but I'm particularly fond of the Burj al Arab, the project of the Burj Dubai and that spectacular marina... 7/10

despite having some of the coolest modern towers around, the cityscape feels very undeveloped and odd... a collection of glassy futuristic towers in a desert, basically.
in a few years it will improve like shanghai and other developing cities, but for now i'd give it a 7.5

The cityscape you're talking about is a villa district very well organised streaching for 10 miles till the Burj Al Arab Hotel, visible in the distance.

I don't call a aerea full of BMWs, Mercedes, Porsches and Ferraris a undeveloped one.

I think that the problem with Dubai is that most activitities take place indoor, at shopping malls or hotels, simply because it's too hot. Nevertheless, the skyline is very nice. 8 out of 10.

I have never been to this city but I heard a lot of good things about this city and I wish can be there. A very nice muslim and free city (that's what I heard of). Keep the prosperity up.

I actually like the older part of the skyline best, as is expemplified in the last picture in post number 83. And as amp stated, the architecture of each individual building is wonderful. I think that it will take a while before all these individual works of art become a homogenous skyline. Thus, I rate it as 8 out of 10 as an overall skyline, even though many of the buildings I would give a 9.5 or a 10.
