I give it an 8 since half of the skyline isn't finished yet when it is completely finished I think it'll be a 10

Amazing towers. I give it 15 years and it will be the best skyline in the world. It definitely needs some filler buildings to make it dense.

8.5/10

Every year Dubai looks more and more impressive. Also, as more towers fill it in, it looks more and more like a cohesive city. It's tough to vote for a city where so much of it is still U/C. I think Dubai has a real shot at having the best skyline in the world in the future, but until then I will grade it "incomplete" and hold off on voting.

Grotesque needy "look at me-ism". A village pumped up on oligarchic steroids. A sham. A wannabe. A never will be. hideous.

It may not look very dense from far distance, but the skyline itself is massive and beautiful. I give it 9/10

dubai has done more to become dence than any city in history. you have to remember that ten years ago, the area was empty. now it has hundreds of really huge world beating skyscrapers. what has your city done in that time ? i am very impressed.

Haha, you trying to compare Dubai with Shanghai? How pointless. You should know that Shanghai was a superflat city in the early 90's. Recently Shanghai has boasted more supertalls than any other city in the world (except Chicago). Also, Shanghai is sooooo much more dense than Dubai.
