I was looking back through my Dubai photos, and was bored enough to compile this list of built and UC supertalls in Dubai...



True supertalls:

01) 828m Burj Khalifa = Built
02) 516m Pentominium = UC
03) 420m Damac Heights = Piling
04) 414m Princess Tower = TO
05) 412m Marina 101 = TO
06) 395m 23 Marina = TO
07) 380m Elite Residence = TO
08) 363m Almas Tower = Built
09) 348m The Torch = Built
10) 328m The Index = Built
11) 376m Emirates Park Tower 1 = TO
12) 376m Emirates Park Tower 2 = TO
13) 333m Rose Tower = Built
14) 355m Emirates Office Tower = Built
15) 310m Ocean Heights = Built
16) 342m Ahmed Abdul Rahim Al Attar = TO
17) 307m Infinity Tower = TO
18) 306m The Address = Built
19) 330m Al Yaqoub Tower = TO
20) 300m Dubai Pearl = UC


Spire cheats:

21) 317m (280m) HHHR/Blue Tower = Built
22) 321m (272m) Burj Al Arab = Built
23) 305m (261m) Emirates Hotel Tower = Built


The buildings are ordered by roof height as per SSP diagrams. However the heights I have listed are all offical heights. That's why the towers do not appear to be in height order, though in fact they are.

The ones I have listed as "TO" are where the concrete core is full height, even if there are still frilly crowns to be finished that will push the height further.

The ones I have listed as "spire cheats" (with true heights in brackets) are where the spire is a pole (and only the pole goes above 300m), but not where the top of the building is substantial and a continuation of the main form of the building (eg Infinity Tower).

If I have to say my point, I personally think that the supertalls in Dubai Marina looks really dull.

I agree. They're almost as tacky as the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai. Luijiazui's '90s towers are pretty tacky too.

However there are some tasteful and attractive supertalls in Dubai:

1) Burj Khalifa
2) Almas Tower
3) The Index
4) Emirates Towers
5) Ocean Heights
6) Infinity Tower
7) Dubai Pearl
8) Burj al Arab

The Pentominium and Damac Tower look decent on the renderings. We'll have to wait and see how they actually turn out.

really funny how far you need to narrow down the area in this one city where you find supertalls look dull. it's pretty much one block, or one street corner. lol

If I have to say my point now, I personally think that the supertalls in Manhattan in the small triangle below Canal Street look really tacky. ..not really

thx for the info. i was wondering cause the site is still fenced off.
they should build something useful for the pedestrians on that site, even if its temporary.

I love tall buildings, and I can appreciate that what Dubai has done is hugely impressive, but the photos above make the place look inhuman, ugly, and just not somewhere I'd want to visit.

It needs more variation, more greenery, more character.
