I LOVE these buildings ALL of them. I wish they would change on this forum what a "SUPERTALL" is...to me? Supertall is anything with OVER 100 stories, instead of meter height, that eliminates alot of these towers that just throw up an antenna 300 feet to make it SEEM taller. with over 100 stories you MUST realy be a supertall bldg....there is NO cheating about it. Now with the BURJ DUBAI.....THAT is what a spire should be!!!! Perfect example of beautiful design and what TO DO!

EPIC!

That's a set of certified stunners. Any other city would be over the moon to get one of those.

Only in Dubai do half a dozen 100 floor towers get lumped in a single thread:P

Some very interesting and original designs. What function would these buildings serve? Will they be business/office buildings? Apartment buildings? Hotels? Mixed use buildings?

If all of the above, is it believed the population of Dubai is going to triple or quadruple in the next ten or so years? What are the projections for tourism? Will there be enough to fill all the hotel rooms? Remember - when it comes to tourism there is a lot of competition out there!

Pray for these to go in Business Bay...
or even better, will be for them to be next to Al Burj !

come to think of it, i'll take back my comment of the design of the AC towers. A closer examine of them reminds me of towers we see in Star Wars and other futuristic films

Some gorgeous designs there. A lot of proposals coming out of Dubai have been rather bland and unremarkable (other than their height). These however are stylish, original and extremely tall.

I can`t believe my eyes, it`s incredible. Just build it. When you come to Dubai after they build them it will be like traveling in time.

I dont like Star Wars, but i do like this (which id dont think has anything to do with the SW fantasies, or what one should call those creations) .

Still wondering about the location, there are many places that could use them.
