I have to see that dubai has the worst supertalls ever cuz they are pretty similers and the design is really boring not like shanghai or kuala lumpure or jakarta

Was in Dubai last week - here is my contribution of photos. Hopefully you can see some new and interesting angles!
I have to say although undoubtedly impressive in terms of height I found the supertall block rather stupid - many buildings block other buildings and excluding Infinity Tower they are all quite boring in design. Imagine buying an apartment and only being able to see another supertall a few metres infront of you...Furthermore the apartments don't even seem to be fitted out that nicely from the pictures I've seen on the Princess Tower thread. This supertall block is also only one component of the Dubai Marina which is HUGE. I could not believe how many building were there and also how quiet it was - what is the occupancy rate of these? The Dubai Marina mall was equally quiet. In the years pre 2008 crisis this masterplan may have been a good idea but now it appears to be a bit of a mistake - perhaps over time it will gradually get some atmosphere.

BTW could anybody tell me the name of the tall (currently) black building towards the back of the supertall block?

I might sound a bit "alienated" with my opinion but I have to say that Marina skyscrapers look amazing
They have that "arabic" look that wouldn't fit anywhere else. It works both ways - all the glass-clad buildings that we consider futuristic or cool just would look out of place in Dubai.
That being said, the Infinity Tower is amazing, and the Pentominium will be great as well (it's on hold as far as I remember).
However, I'm concerned with the light exposure on some of the smaller buildings in the Marina - are they getting enough light during the day ? There are some pretty strict settings for that here in Poland that stopped quite a few high-rise development projects due to the bigger buildings overshadowing the smaller ones.

The block of long shadows has some advantages, too... for instance here you have some hours to play tennis without the sun burning on your head.
