Hm yes New York had more time, but Shanghais Pudong quarter has just been grass 10 years ago and looks developed too.
The problem is, that Dubai has to landscape if they would not have sand at a place somewhere.
Other cities, which are located in the temperate region have trees at empty areas without landscaping.

I know this isn't directly related to the thread, but does anyone else know what happened to the some of other projects in Business Bay? I was hoping that since we've seen an upturn in construction recently in Dubai that possibly some of them could have restarted.
ex. Anantara Towers, Tiara United Towers, or the Opus?

BTW, This is progressing very well!

Not sure for Anantara and Tiara, but Opus is progressing. They re-started the construction and if you go to the site, you will see a lot of activities there.
Completion should be Q2 2016.

Some towers have restarted there, but many are still on hold.

How can you landscape an area in a middle of a construction zone?

Once again, trees and greenery alongside roads are the norm, not the exception here. You just have to visit and see for yourself
