Let's tide over the Imre-less time in Dubai...
I merged snapshots from gerald's great gigapan.org panorama.
Here's Marina 101, only a few meters shorter than Sulafa Tower (left, with growing crown) and far ahead of Marina Pinnacle (right).
Core framework is up to level 77 there / at least 280m, and outer walls are made at level 74 already.

29/March/2010, taken from original panorama by gerald d.:

I totally disagree! I think that it is classy and tall. A future icon. Not every building has to be super modern and shiny to be beautiful. Your crazy!

A great looking tower and finally something to add a bit of class to the dubai skyline. A lot of the skyscrapers have been slapped up without much thought for good design in the great rush to expand dubai!!!!!!!

This goes to all those people who thought Montevideo was a "flat" city... we're about to have a massive and modern version of the Chrysler Building!

really guys, your irony is killing me!

i think the height is perfect for a hotel or any type of structure for Dubai but the design is horrible but dont get me wrong and im saying this because i know dubai has the potential for making much more amazing projects than this one for example the Burj Al Arab is what i call Amazing.. but thats my opinion

I'm afraid it will be another of those "it looked much better on the renders..." towers- like The Index which looked very good on the renders and now it's just... another skyscraper. Anyway- most of this tower's features won't be seen because of the surrounding buildings- only the crown will be actually seen and I'm 100% sure that it won't look like in the renders.

I love the designs of all these building and concept they have for the marina area, but why are they all built sooo close to each other?? I mean wouldn't one face of a building be completely overshadowed by another?
i feel sorry for the buildings in the back row facing the water

Very strange, it's normal that on the first 5 pages people say what they think of a building. And than some people who look at a thread for the first time post their opinion like once every three pages. But now after 25 pages of no-opinion-posting it starts again at once, just like everyone sees this thread for the first time... strange...
