I think the idea was that Dubai would be built so densely like Manhattan. Now that it didn't happen, the current situation obviously makes little sense.

The marina is more dense and has taller towers than the original drawings. the plan was not to build it more dense than manhattan.

Density where it evolves by demand and actual development... But this? I'm sorry, but the way the Dubai Marina appears cries out "artificial", "senseless" and "wannabe urbanity gone mad" with an unbearable volume. Unfinished/on hold/empty projects don't help much in this case of course.

It looks really impressive at night though, I have to admit.

Well, it depends from your expectations, but once it tops out and most of the cladding is done, there is no much progress to be seen.

I think so. The wanted a dense cluster, but they didnt´t know that to have a goos cluster, it must be tall and low building in smooth transition. Also, buildings have to be more massive. That's important.

hold on a second. important for what?

office building layouts can afford to be more massive. i wouldn't want to buy into more massive towers than the elite residence - doesnt that mean less window area per sqft? in residential developments windows in each room are important, too.

I cannot help but wonder how many people Dubai thinks are wanting to (or can afford to) live there... Does Dubai think that they can find 2, 3, 4 million high net worth folk that will buy up these towers and the dozens and dozens more under construction and even more being planned? Abu Dhabi's development is more tempered and in line with demand whereas Dubai seems to think that 'if you build it they will come'... Well with the oil almost gone in Dubai and the limitations of life in the UAE (even in the free-for-all that is Dubai) there are a LOT of peoples around the world that will never be willing to live there... I lived and taught in Abu Dhabi last year and loved it there... I would not live in Dubai for any amount of money... I never lasted more than 48 hours in Dubai before i was pulling my hair out to get out and back to the relative tranquility of Abu Dhabi... thoughts?

The quality of some of those rooms look pretty bad! The kitchens in particular look cheap and dated, and what is with the ceiling tiles?! urgghh
