Not exactly.
Modernization doesn't need to refer systematically to Dubaï and this type of city.

Monaco just need new infrastructures. Nowadays we don't build with stone but with glass & concrete. That's why you can have this feeling.
Monaco is much more pleasant visually than Dubaï imho.
We still built with stone but some you just don’t have a taste for it

I'm sorry but I find those projects for Rue de la Turbie and Villa Portofino to look very artificial. It seems odd to destroy genuine historical buildings only to replace them with something out of a themed park. They don't even try to follow the local architecture, but instead have this generic "classical" look that never existed in history. It's something you would expect in a new development trying to emulate the look of an old european city.

I wish they would at least leave La Condamime alone, it seems to be one of the last areas along with the Rock to have preserved some of the old charm of Monaco.

Canadian Company to Construct Villa Carmelha without Cranes or Hoists
The Principality’s skyline has been recently overtaken by cranes. New developments and constructions are quickly changing and updating Monaco. But a company from Quebec will be constructing the Villa Carmelha without the use of cranes, scaffolding or hoists.

Upbrella Construction uses a unique technology for vertical height construction. A new way to mount the structure and envelope of high buildings made of concrete or steel. The technique is known for its waste reduction, risk reduction, increased quality and increased safety.

Villa Carmelha will be an eight storey building created with a revolutionary process where everything begins with constructing the roof. It will be a residential tower comprising 25 state-owned dwellings, 1 800 m², 47 metres high, costing €22.5 million. Designed with the environment in mind, the building will be made of wood, complete with a rooftop terrace. The construction will have a very low carbon footprint, sealed with the Mediterranean Sustainable Building label, gold level.
