I am just going to express an opinion ... not attempting to be a troll or anything ... but from the pictures I find myself saying "Yikes! What a hideous pack of buildings!" I don't like it. I've been to Dubai twice, the first time about 12 years ago (when I bought my gold chain at the souk) and then again about 6 years later, just as all the big construction started. To me it looks ... so ... ugly. The Burj Khalifa is a nice design but everything else is so cheesy.

I think most people would change their mind about the "UGLY TOWERS" when they are all finished.

no not anymore lol, ur actually very wrong, dubais bubble has burst, no more "it doesn't matter what it looks like as long as I make money saying"

right now its all location, location, location, price price price, and most importantly building

welcome to the biggest oversupply in units in this decade,
its going to get worse by end of 2011 when most of marina is finished.

In general buildings in Dubai are better quality than most other locations on earth since new technology etc is used to build it.

If i was an Urban planner i would diffinately go about planning most of the major communities in Dubai differently.

The Dubai marina / tallest block is NOT perfect. But please , point out what city is. What is really Dumb is when people dont take the time to specify what building/street/aspect of a city they dont like , they are just armchair experts that blurt out the stupidist things like (Dubai sucks and its cheesy) .... Yeah good luck with anyone taking your opinion seriously.

I have been to the Gold coast , and well , hmmm ... lets just keep this to Dubai

it had to grow on me too. and at the end it looks awesome just because its a bunch of colorful buildings. is a bit las vegas like. some towers alone aren't nice at all of them, but in a bunch it is really an eyecatcher

Opinionated, yes; but not bitter.

Keep in mind I'm basing my views on the photos ... maybe they look better in person.
