Damn, that is one beautiful building! I wonder what the interior is made up of? Is it a hotel?

I hope no one can open the windows there too much. Imagine if someone is drunk and has to puke...outside the window 400m on the street...oh boy what a mess.

I totally agree ... I don't think many people get how it feels to have that many supertalls close together ... I mean I have done it like a zillion times but every time I walk in this cluster of towers I can't but look up and never get bored of the view!! I don't think I will ever be! It is just majestic and humbling

damn, marina 23 is such a beauty. wish it would stand in a city where it actually could have been by far the tallest. Only really got to learn about its beauty when it stood in my sim city next to non supertalls.

Fortunately, I had this amazing experience too At one day, we took a Yellow Boat cruise tour around the palm, Burj Al Arab and the Tallest Block.
Amazing views and I took amazing shots! After it we went through the Tallest Block. It was spectacular!
Especially as a European/German, because there aren't so many high-rises and no supertalls anywhere, even not in Frankfurt.

You are right! I love these triangle balconies sticking out of the tower at the upper part. And dat spire...

I bet the second tallest block on the earth is the block the shanghai tower, jin mao tower and swfc center is on, if you add the height of all the towers it is about nearly 4,000 feet tall.
