These things are monsters! And that base! It's monolithic. I don't know if I like them?!

Most of the Designs in Dubai I like, but this ist just...

The podium is way too big and high! It will look terrible next to the Marina Walk...

Don't build it with this Design!

I would like them, if there were just 1 building. What they did is: designed a cool skyscraper and multiplied by 3, then a horrible trine with a strange podium.

It looks for me like a proposal for Hongkong.
IMO the podium is way to big and they don't leave room for an appropriate sidewalk .
On top of that, there is no public space or something.

These towers are monstrous. Completely lifeless, the essence of horrible architecture which doesn't relate to the human scale. I think the endless lanes of asphalt surrounding the base of the tower pretty much sum it up. This is built to be an investment, not a place to live.

^The problem isn't so much the look of the towers (although they're not great). The problem is the location and the podium. Buildings need to interact well with the streets that surrond them, they should create public space that people want to use. They should never be sealed off units surronded by 4lane roads that encourage people to never go outside. This is especially true in residential areas like the Marina
If this project is allowed to happen one of the best spots in the marina will be turned into a lifeless wasteland.

well put

I like the design of the towers above the base. The streetlevel area is horrible though, its definately not build for pedestrian acces

First, welcome to this section of the forum.

As for the street level, the model is totally inaccurate. There are no 4 lanes wide roads around the tower, certanly not on the promenade.
