hopefully they will make up their mind soon. This one is a lot more exciting than Burj Dubai IMO.

O cmon. Have you ever seen that landscape render by malec? You can see burj dubai on it, and right next to it that eyesore one dubai .Trully, im confused about this one a bit. Becouse i really like (as i said before) the bridges, and i really want to stand on one of these one day, but design of that thing, and way how it would look from distance with the rest of crapers is just mistake for me..

From left to right the tall towers are as follows:

Meraas Tower (550m)
One Park Avenue (550m)
DIFC Central Tower (about 500m)
Some random government tower proposal (around 500m)
Burj Dubai (818m)
One Dubai (850m)
Burj Al Alam (510m, but only 480m or so in that model)

Many might get canceled, but I wonder when we might actually see this for real. Around 2015?
