I'd say that dubai's population has grown considerably over the last 10 years, thus there is now demand for these buildings.

What employment other than retail or hospitality ? I know everyone likes where they live but can't see many people would move to Dubai...don't mean that to be derogatory but if you take away the built environment you may as well be on Mars...With air ! I know you must like it but have you been anywhere else ?

It is hard to put the right words ? I am just trying to compare lifestyle and environments around the world. Variety makes every destination worth visiting or no one would travel !

Dubai is a global city not just real-estate . it is actually driven by aviation and port those two sector are the creator of jobs. in last 10 yrs Dubai try to diversity its economic beyond trade and aviation ( oil never been major sector since 1990) so it invest in finance,media,technology and tourism. right now oil responsible for 3% of GDP and real-estate for 10%.

Nothing else like it on the planet. Dubai will always have a totally unique and recognizable look to which this building will contribute with a (hopefully) great crown.

I felt like I got a couple of hours of free time on my hand so I photoshoped what would the marina look like when all towers are done and in place!! The whole thing took me quite a while to piece them all together plus I tried as much as I can to fix brightness and contrast! I would like to apologize in advance cz I might have done some mistakes in height and placement but I did the best I could with my Adobe Photoshop CS6! So as you can see towers I photoshoped are Pentominium, Marina 106, Dream Dubai Marina and Damac Residenze.

1024*600

1600*1000
