That map is a bit old IMO.

Here is a current map. The biggest star in the middle is Nakheel Tower.

right now, the only completed island is the palm jumeirah
palm jebel ali and the world are halfway through, the bottom of palm deira is being worked on,
and they are just starting on the waterfront.

so yeah, this is just what itll look like in the future

No... that small needle-looking spire, makes it look like a blood-tester, that you use to puncture your skin with; I'd say either without it, or with something a lot bigger.

To me, it looks ok...
But from other side, it would look ok without the spire too...

Wrong!

In both cases what's left is re-shaping and cosmetic reclamation to confirm to the respective (new) masterplans.

palm deira undergone re-designing, and to be fair that world island or archipelgos looks so distort and disasterous in real life.

well right, but the overall status of the amount of reclaimed land is roughly halfway through, right?
it was just a rough guestimation

As I said, Palm Jebel Ali and The World are pretty much complete reclamation wise.

Wow!!! Looks like something you see on Coruscant in Star Wars. Imagine what will be proposed in 20 years time, 2000 - 3000m towers? Not just in Dubai. Fantastic Skyscraper, if you can call it that.

It's a fantastic skyscraper, without a doubt, and IMO structurally, with the interconnected building parts, even more interesting then Burj Dubai.

Btw, I think that the Spire looks quite good. though I'd have preferred the top to be without a spire, and the roof height the same height as the spire .

The entire top section of the building gives the effect of being a spire with the needle shape simply comprising the apex. Glorious design. I worry about Dubai though. They are hedging their bets that they will become the financial, trade, and tourism hub of the mid east. Once the oil money runs out, which it eventually will, they better hope that they planned right or Dubai will be the most astonishing ghost town in the world.

I'd say 2017-18 if they are fast and nothing goes wrong.

EDIT: Dino beat me to it.
