Wow! Nice shot!
I like the two towers next to Al Hikma Towers! They reflect the landscape well.

They were supposed to be of the same height, but the Abu Dhabi developer chickened out when the crisis hit. I guess he regrets it now.

If it was up to me there'd be a lot more landscaping in that area in general. A lot of these streets in the above pic could be lined with trees for example. It would greatly improve that awful "sand everywhere"-look in my opinion.

You thinj that because you are looking at aerial pictures. If you actually were there strolling around, you'd think otherwise

On Google Earth,many places look sandy and undeveloped. New York f.ex. or Shanghai looks more developed than Downtown Dubai.
Maybe after Emaar announced all these new projects, it will be better(of course first after completion). But the Marina and JLT looks developed.

Street view is a difference though.

I cannot understand, why they don't landscape the area between two lines of a road. F.ex. many streets in Business Bay could be so well landscaped!

Well, NYC has been developing a tad longer than Dubai, so it's no surprise it looks more developed.

Dubai certainly has a lot of building and infrastructure projects in the works that will greatly improve it in the coming years and decades, like I said, I just wish for more greenery and less sand. I hate sand.
