My only criticism is that it seems very difficult to get all supertalls in one pic. At least one of them is always covered by the others. The angle in the first pic in post #1753 seems to work best, though you only get a little corner of The Torch there.

Marina 101 will also disappear behind 106 Tower, Elite Residence, Marina Pinnacle and Sulafa Tower.

I think it will only service the restaurant / observation deck at the top of the tower

So Marina 106 is progressing well, 101 is finally getting it's crown and Pentominium is (hopefully) about to restart? What a week for the tallest block. What a week for Dubai!

Boy they really made a mess of its paint job. But then that's true of most of the buildings in that block. They couldn't ever just stick to the original renders.

u know people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones! At least they do paint jobs not as pale as I don't know towers in a very famous lifeless US city, which I can't really remember its name because Dubai has stripped it from all its glory, and it desperately try to keep on track by throwing pipe dream proposals like garbage everywhere here.

But you see if you beg, I might pity you and send a ticket to come over here for a visit or you can stay living in your frustration

i dont even think that's paint. it's cladded in some material, stone or concrete or whatever. they dont generally paint skyscrapers as that's a lot of paint.

i hope you're not talking about new york city (best city in the world!!). it's far from lifeless as they're constantly adding more skyscrapers to their classy tasteful skyline and the city attracts millions of people around the world both in tourism and residents.

You're talking about Las Vegas, right? That's the only US city comparable to the chintz monstrosity that is Dubai.

- Built in the middle of a desert? Check.

- Economy based entirely on gaudy excess? Check.

- Giant fountains? Check.

- Obscene, please-look-at-me architecture designed only to be noticed rather than appreciated? Check.

- A place that's nice to visit but hellish to live in? Check.

- Political and social freedoms? Well you don't have that, but at least you have modern-day slavery and religious intolerance, so it all balances out.

4 out of 5 stars.

Simpleness. Primitivism. Babbittry. Your comment, all at once.

Bravo. 3 out of 3
