I guess it has is tall buildings. But there is no harmony in the skyline. I am sure that in some years ahead it it will be really amazing. But for now it gets a 7.5/10

The city has some impressive buildings and some stunning developments going on, but the skyline seems to lack harmony.

If I have to spend billions of dollars and create a skyline that is short on symmetry and balance, I will call it Dubai- and Dubaiesque is an apt term to describe similar attempts elsewhere . 5.5/10.

very beautiful.
But to compare with Manhattan it's needed to add about 5 streets like this.
So, if New York is 10, Dubai is 9

Some of them look for atleast very plastic and cartoony, like they belong in a theme park as a pose to a world calss skyline. Having said that, give it another five years and the skyline will have a cohesion that will make it all look stunning.
