They still have some huge plots to develop around the tallest block.

"dutchsnookerfan" 's choice of words may be little bit offending, but at least he's partitally correct. New York and Hong Kong still have more skyscrapers than Dubai, but they don't look as impressive now, as some buildings are growing old and their skylines are not as concentrated as Dubai.
As for Shanghai, even though it has many many highrise buildings, it has fewer skyscrapers (500ft +) than Dubai and its tallest building is much shorter than Dubai's tallest.

So, nearly a year after this post, and where is Dubai now? 19 towers over the 300m mark? (I know Marina 101 and Elite Residences are over 300m now, and I assume that Infinity Tower is therabouts.)

Damac has it's own thread with pics, and there is hardly any visible change at this although lots of progress on the piling.

Also I believe nobody contributing photos here is obliged to post any of them, or maintain a complete list.

Despite being a fan of Dubai, I just don't see how one can say that there is anything "concentrated" about it's skyline, especially in comarison with the likes of Hong Kong. There are several clusters in the Marina area, a couple of buildings in TECOM, several kilometers devoid of towers, SZR, which is not concentrated, rather a single string of buildings, DBD, with huge distances between Burj Khalifa and the surrounding skyscrapers, and Business Bay with a random tower here and there. In the renders Dubai may be concentrated. In reality it won't be for long, long years.

I don't agree. New York has over 100 years of skyscraperhistory and as a result of that a huge variation in building styles.
Not to mention the steet life which is not just for the rich and famous.
I will favor New York over Dubai any time.

And size is not all that matters.
