Don't worry, once one tower comes, the rest will follow soon. Before you know it that whole stretch of SZR will be filled up with towers

On the other side of the road there are 3 completed towers and some others are under construction and eventually it will be filled up, but they are NOT part of the Burj Dubai Downtown or Business Bay, both of them are "confined" behind that row (more of a zig-zag actualkly) of SZR towers.

Wow. Not the best kind of design, but as a twin-towers they look much better. The height is pretty insane too.

YUCK. I don't like these two. Very cheap and cheesy. They look like a pair of those "personal vibrators" the ladies like so much.

I'm not against the construction in Dubai, and I think the Almas tower is stunningly beautiful ... but these two - TACKY.

I like these towers a lot. I remember seeing the design under another name some time ago. I agree that these would deserve a more symbolic location; however, I guess this part of SZR will get more filled up with high buildings as real estate prices there rise due to projects on the other side of the road nearing completion.

Eh...the cityscape models look terrible, but the renders look a lot better. They should look more like the renders than the models.
