The only similarity is that the crown in Austin has the same aesthetics.

It seems the crown is more difficult to construct than the whole building. Btw the outside elevator will be awesome!

Thank god the upper quarter of the tower is the best, it will be all that sticks out once 106 is built.

It's interesting how dense the marina cluster seems depending on the angle of viewing.
Btw Marina 23 is imo the best and most beautiful in this area.

I agree that Marina 101 is probably going to be the best or one of the best buildings in the Marina district.

I'm currently learning sketchup to build a city. To know how many 100m buildings for how many 150m buildings etc I need to make a realistic city, I counted buildings in cities like shanghai and dubai in their main skylines. Dubai marina has a lot of density compared to other major skylines. I didn't realize that before, but it stretches quite a while with highrises.

This is super of topic, but, I am the only one who thinks that Jeddah will not be even nearly as big and nice as dubai, even though they are trying to be. I really wish the KIngdom tower was being built in Dubai or they decided to build the Nakheel Tower. I think building the KIngdom tower in Jeddah is a waste.

Put this post in the Kingdom Tower thread, watch the reaction.

Honestly, I think there is no comparison. There were dozens of megaprojects and masterplans built in Dubai in the last decade, only a single one at the moment in Jeddah, and that one's in its earliest stage.

The problem is the country itself. The laws and conditions in the country are conservative and bad. Because of this I would never travel to Saudi-Arabia and I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks like this.

From this angle 101 and Princess are almost the same height, which is quite close to reality now. I'm still interested in how they will increase the height up to 427 m
