Marina 106 is huge, but will be "just another tall tower in Dubai" for most people (not skyscraper enthusiasts).

The skyscraper that do play in the same league with Burj Khalifa is actually Burj al Arab, as a symbol of Dubai.

There are so many towers a lot higher than 321m in Dubai, that most people have no clue about them.

But most people recognize Burj al Arab, unless their general knowledge fit on a bus ticket.

It doesn't even look that tall, probably because of the width

if you think it's because of the didth you have no idea about the power of history. burj al arab was the first tall tower and the first ultra hotel to open in dubai. just as a reference the oriental pearl in shanghai still wins any popularity contest agains two far taller towers, althought being an observation tower, smaller and far less impressive. the secret is in age. if you get famous first, you will stay famous for longer. that's why the big ben and the pyramids are among the most famous landmarks although they are extremely easy to create with todays tools.

^ The Burj Al Arab and Burj Khalifa will always be the symbols of Dubai the only way that any tower will join in on the club is if it is taller than the Burj Khalifa.

Depending on the design, Burj 2020 could end up being an icon for Dubai too.

There is no reason to assume the opposite. Besides, the real question is, what is the definition of "U/C"? How many breaks or interruptions are tolerated? Does a construction get on-hold the second no one is working on it? This must be answered in order to tell whether The Skyscraper is U/C or not

Take a look at the thread of Burj 2020. They changed the design. I don't even think the design above was an official proposal at all.

My list for supertalls and 200m+ in Dubai.

Please correct me if there are glaring errors.

DB by Kwok Bobby, on Flickr

I included 200-299m towers because all the info was already compiled and I thought let's not waste it.

Awesome work scion I am stealing this list you just forgot the tallest upcoming tower but no biggy and there is the Pentominium and the 4 on hold Dubai pearl towers. 2 in this list might not be actual supertalls we are waiting confirmation. But overall I think Dubai will score around 50 supertalls in 10 years time
