Looks dull structurally but maybe it's too early to judge.

Well, I remodeled Marina 101. Did one before (long time ago) but here's an improved version. I don't think it's better than my previous two models of Torch and Princess but I thinbk that's just because this tower is so boring! I tried to make it detailed but this towers just doesn't have any.

Its tallest block in the world!

but the 400+ in this block are not all U/C :

1) Princess tower 412m U/C
2) Marina 101 412m U/C
3) Marina 106 435m prep
4) Pentominium 618m prep
5) Damac Heights 460m On Hold (Maybe never)

and if u dont want to be restrict on the height, then u can add the close ones in height Marina:
1)Eilite Residence 380 U/C
2)23 Marina 395 U/C

and if you want to go more easy on the height to super tall then add those ones;
1) Ocien Height 310m U/C
2) infinity Tower 307m U/C
3) the torch 345m U/C

It should be renamed "the cheapest block in the world"

Except Pentominium, wich is in a totaly different league, and Damac Heights, with poor chance of rising, all +400m are dull and cheap looking.

Here is a comparison with other 400-450m towers around the world:



Funny thing is that on Emporis ranking, they score more points...

I know that block is just "good business" with so many supertall towers crowded togheter.

Most of them are not ugly, if they where 200-250m would be OK for residentials, but to build a 400-450m structure and then put a ceap cladding on... is just sad...

(I personaly don't like how they are crowded togheter, taking each other view, but that's another story.)

It looks like generally all of the supertalls in dubai marina are side by side and completely parallel to one another at a squared angle. Isn't it more ethical to build the buldings diagonally if they're right next door to a building thats just as tall. Like the world trade centers. I dunno it just doesn't seem reasonable to me with most views blocked... but i still have to go and check that place out one day
