In fact with "desert" he was not referencing the amount of water in the area but the fact that it is literally deserted outside the limited metropolitan area. Population density and overall supply & demand are the drivers that regulate the price of a property. Given the amount of available space (because it rises in the middle of a desert and population density is relatively low when considering the average for the entire metropolitan area), then it would be surprising that it would be expensive.

What phoenixboi08 said could very well affect the price, given the particular situation of Dubai. That is, instead of rising in a populous metropolitan area, with extensive developments around the downtown area like almost every city in Asia/Europe/Americas, it was developed in what is essentially a desert. Therefore proximity to essential, expensive infrastructure could affect price.

Does that clear it up?

While the tower is going to be impressive, I am more impressed by the fact that Carey Grant and Gina Lollobrigida are going to be tenants...since when were they a couple?...

I'm fairly sure he's already back as ShvoJob. It certainly smacks of Walpolian "humor."

Somebody should try to get back up there soon. We could use an excavation update on all the 57th st projects.

Maybe, Lowkey lion is also him though. He does provide good information about projects though so I don't mind.

Nice pic of the model of 111W57. This will absolutely will become a stunner and a crown jewel of NYC.

Haha, banned again? I guess it's because he insulted Chicago again, isn't it?

These 2 pretty much tell the story (the second one might be more current):

The wait for this one to get going is killing me. One little excavator doesn't cut it. Once the black netting of death comes to strip out the facade around the courtyard, I'll believe this is really happening...

The site is pretty small, but this supertall will be stunning when it's finished IMO

You could hardly play stickball in that alley, yet they're going to put up a 1,350' building. Amazing.

BTW, I think the woman on the balcony looks more like Sophia Loren than Gina Lollobrigida.
