As the light show is extended till March 2018, I wonder whether EMAAR has already decided not to have the light show for the 2019 new year evening. Let's see whether the firework is coming back or an enhanced laser show will reappear.

A combination of firework from the surrounding buildings with laser show from Burj Khalifa can also be an option.

Looking at all these rather bland, repetetive and exchangeable new towers, I somehow miss the "good old" (sometimes tacky, but at least "Dubaian") postmodernism of Dubai in earlier days, specifically the 2000s and early 2010s... At least that style was creative and brought a recognizable, distinctive "Dubai style" to the city.

Think of marvels like the Burj Al Arab. Where's that imagination and creativity gone?

Not taking anything from Burj al-Arab, not all towers have the same design goals as flashy 7-star hotels...

Anyone knows what project is starting next to Burj Views towards the Distinction? One plot has been sealed off with the blue fence around it.

The site doesn't have any information board but I noticed a few sings from HSSG. In a week or so I'm sure there will be more information.

Do we know who the developer is? I believe EMAAR has sold all these plots to other developers, but again I'm only guessing
