I love the design!

That's one nice looking building!

Though I must say, I don't know if I would want to live 80 storeys up in the air.

I really wish we had more buildings styled like this in the U.S.

This kind of design could fit in to almost any major American city, IMO.

^It would work well in cities like Miami and Ft. Lauderdale.

I admit I wouldn't want to live 80 stories up in the air, but it is a fascinating development.

It would look fantastic in Miami!

This building would definately be the center piece to most skylines in the U.S., in Duai, it's just another piece of the puzzle. :lol:

I do wonder why there aren't more buildings like this in the US. Not just this one but like so many of the ones that are being built over in Dubai. Is it because there doesn't seem to be as many skyscrapers being built? Maybe people are trying to design them to fit in with the pre-existing architecture? Or have we just gotten conservative in building designs?

I don't think these types of buildings would fit well with US skylines since they're too flashy and wouldn't fit well together. That's one of the reasons why the reasons to critisize fordham spire for example.

I wondered if that could be one reason. I guess we might just have to wait for Las Vegas to become a larger city. I could see this type of architecture fitting in there.

Vegas is having a skyscraper boom of it's own, though nothing like Dubai.

It will only be a few years before Vegas will have a major skyline. I''m interested to see what it is going to look like.

Yeah, I could see a building like this working in Vegas, especially with the large condo movement they are having as well.

I could really see Las Vegas being a mini version of Dubai in the future.

Come on we know how they suck up water like a sponge in Las Vegas. They could just make a lake out there or something. :D
