Did he kill himself after he saw how these buildings turned out in reality?

Ouch, that's just mean. Princess Tower and Elite are a handsome pair of skyscrapers, IMHO.

Sorry but no, for my taste these are hideous. There are a lot of beautiful buildings in Dubai but in the tallest block only Ocean Heights has a decent design.

I also very like The Torch, but indeed for some towers it's better they stand so close together.

New designs alright, still liked the old one better but it certainly will still look nice when finished!

I really liked the first design, the new one looks good anyway. I hope to see this one built soon.

The complete lack of news and updates on Damac Website from this one probably indicates that it has been on hold for quite a while now. If not, the core would already have risen above the ground and it seems that it's far from being the case
I didn't realise because I remembered that their old photos use to have the dates with them and didn't see them on these, so I though these were new.Then I compared these photos with photos from December 2012 that was posted by The-King, and it looks like you are right.

If you go back to Page 37 the same update photos are shown as the ones on this page. Now that was back in December 2012 so who knows how much progress, if any, has taken place since then. However, the above pictures are definitely not the most recent (at least 4 months old).
