Now there’s an impressive skyline to look at.  It seems like only the Middle East has the money and creativity to put up these kind of towers nowadays, although it looks like Chicago, New York, and Tianjin are also active participants in this tower frenzy.

However, as the Malaysia City post points out, the economic crisis is starting to turn off the taps of money that used to flow into these megaprojects.  I haven’t been to Dubai yet, but I’m sure it’s all the eye candy that you can imagine.  Check out Malaysia City‘s post for more photos of other big tower projects in and around the Middle East.
