I wish everyone here could stick to the topic and stop embarrassing themselves by showing how highly ignorant and biased they are. Comparing Riyadh to Dubai is truly an indicator of which.
Read up people..

That being said, the building is nice, but the city is horrible. Done.
Riyadh is actually voted to better quality of life then 40% of american cities, whats with the attacks!! You cant base your view of a cities by a few pictures you've seen on the internet, and all i said is that Tulsa is one of the ugliest cities in the united states

I don't think Arabians don't deserve their cities to look nice, I never said only western cities or cities with westerners deserve to look nice. I want all people on this planet to live in nice cities. I just said it wouldn't be possible for Riyadh, however that's just my opinion.

What you can also ask yourself is: do you really want your city to look like Dubai? I certainly won't. Dubai would be nice to stay as a tourist, and I certainly admire their ambition. However, it's just some huge towers and a lot of villas in the middle of the desert. That may seem nice at first sight, but I think it won't be very pleasant to live in.
Besides, the problem I above mentioned, the fact there isn't a wealthy middle class makes all the malls, the office towers and the condo-towers stay empty. I'm not sure if Dubai will ever get off the ground, but as it seems right now, it's heading towards the ghost town-scenario. They are still building a lot of towers and other things, but also a lot more towers and other buildings are on hold or have been cancelled. If it weren't for Abu Dhabi, Dubai would already have been bankrupt.
oh my god , please just stop talking , now you only embarrassing your self

Riyadh and Jeddah have more " exclusive brand-stores " than Dubai and most western cities and there doing so will without the " westerners " .

beside we don't want Riyadh to be like Dubai , one Dubai in the GCC is enough , its like comparing Washington with Los Angeles .


do some readings

peace

Why don't you try ''seeking the truth'' before talking out of your ass and repeating everything you hear ..?
