Well at least they didn't try and use that as a false selling point then

Nice perspective to many different construction sites in the heart of Marina (Marina Pinnacle, Ocean Heights, Marina 101, Sulafa Tower, Mag 218). Marina 101 right in the centre is the least noticeable here, cause you don't see much of the plot hole. It would be interesting to see, if actually something is happening down on the ground.

Marina Arcade is introduced here, too, and I wonder if (and how) this mall could go u/c soon, while construction is going on everywhere around with not a meter of distance in-between then. I bet that the logistics for Marina 101 would be much easier, if the Arcade site still can be used during the next years.

in the last pics from imre you can see that they are digging out the piles. maybe they've already finished it, that means they'll soon start with prepairing the piles for the rebar and the big pour, after that it will start to rise....all that will happen long before the end of the year

Why do they build these supertall towers here so extremely close together?

I know it looks better when they are clustered, but some more space between then (a road, or little park of the same width) would be better i think.

Btw, i also don't like those high podiums. I know they are needed for parking space because they can't dig deep in this ground. But if those towers are all togeter in 1 plot anyways, why not build 1 or 2 big parking garages behind the towers?

There's no space for carparks behind the towers. I don't know why they're building them all close together like this. The unlimited height plots are all in this area. I think they should have spread them around the marina so that they don't all block each other's views.

They should have set the location of the tower like the one of the JBR. Every tower would get a great view and it would still look very impressive.

exactly, that would be much better.

Placing them in a block like this, just looks stupid

and indeed, they block each others views. I mean, they are really PACKED.
