And damn! That tower(s) are/is ugly.

To me, Dubai has always been like a single-mother ugly chick with really huge knockers and an god-awful face. One part of it is nice and large (building:boobs) but everything else is a cut below every truly great city on earth.

But then again, some people can look past the flaws, ignore the other 99%, and have fun with their selective vision.

I like them all, though I would love to see the Atrium City Towers be built of day the most.

If anything, that is an amazing model, bet that cost a few hundred grand to build.

That model is pretty sweet. It's not realistic at all, but I love the glowing shorelines.

I like the last building; reminds me of NY's Hearst Tower.
