Marina is going to look beautiful once it is completed. I think a trip to Dubai in 2010-2012 sounds good.

What's the supertall on the far left side of the Marina? Is that an actual project?

My favorite thing about this tower is that it's all glass - or mostly glass. The Marina has too many painted concrete towers with ho-hum designs. It needs some shiny glass towers to help add some color and brightness.

While the Pentominium is awesome, the Marina masterplan looks awful.

Dude, while Marina is the tallest section of scrapers in the world, it's almost among the ugliest!

The Pentominium does a good job of easing the eyesore in Marina. While I don't agree with it's 'fins' it is an awesome design overall.

Who wants to bet that before this thing is over, they will raise the height just above 2000 feet just so they can top the Spire for residential WTB? >.>

This tower is way to stylish for Dubai.....lol kidding. But it is nice to see a strikingly modern nightlifish skyscraper go up in a city of tropical tack (with the exception of a few towers into which some thought went. *cough* burj dubai *cough*). That Jumeirah Park (three posts previous) is a little frightening. It looks like they are trying to build all of L.A.'s sprawl at once.

It was, but it was cancelled.

Anyway, why is this thread still here, this tower has in no way started construction

I'm not a particular fan of Dubai architecture, but this is one nice building. Very classy and pleasing to the eye. To me, its a change from the ordinary: tall buildings but with no surprising design.

Wow, great pics. That's the first time I've seen silver cladding on this tower. Most of the drawings or renderings of this tower I've seen before show blue cladding on it.

It's cause the models are cheap. Why are models so cheap in Dubai when everything else is so expensive?

If I was in Dubai I would go up to the sales person and ask "Why are your models so cheap when you're making a billion dollar tower?"

Anyways, I like the building and the flash could also have something to do with it lookin silver not blue.
