Well is not garbage since those are residential buildings, most of this kind of construction are architecturally "ugly", because of the features needed or seeked by the customers (like balconies) unlike office space buldings, which most of them have a plain and solid appearance, turning out a little more appealing for most of the people. And to be honest, I like what is being done with this building, specially the crown.

Remember those buildings are built for people who will live there, not to work. Sorry for my english.

Dubai Marina skyscraper surpasses Eiffel Tower
by CW Staff on Nov 2, 2011

Tameer Holding’s Elite Residence in Dubai Marina has reached its final height of 381m, almost 60m taller than the Eiffel Tower.

The roof structure and mast have recently been completed, and the tower crane has now been removed. The focus for the site team will now be on the completion of the internal finishes. “It is a proud moment for Tameer to see one of our most iconic projects reach this important milestone,” said president Federico Tauber.

The AED1.7 billion tower includes a total of 697 apartments over 91 storeys and will be home to around 1,500 residents.

I can still see that ugly scaffolding on the globe on top. They need to get rid of it.

They will, but I hope they'll put up a decent spire first. This one is a bit tiny.

What a ridiculous looking tower for this frightening, bold and ugly cluster...


Do-Buy, you've got such an awful lot of money, what the heck are you doing with it?

I agree.

We have a word for this kind of architecture: TACKY

Are you suggesting Dubai is paying money for the Elite Residence Tower in any way? If anything, Dubai is making a good chunk of money out of it. The plot costs dozens of Millions, and is about 60x60m.

Do-Buy, you've had such an awful lot of boring empty sand, what the heck have you done with it? We expect an official appology for this ugly cluster. It is an insult to all the people who don't live here. Oh, ok.

I'm talking about urban planning, wich I can't sense even the slightest reasonable kind of in this block. That's the business of the Dubai government.
