can someone tell me about the trees that are used for landscaping, are they planted at destination which in my knowledge would take 3 years or more to mature or are they planted else where and then replanted at destination if so what are some companies that do this and are they located in UAE. I am really fascinated by Dubai natural landscape with mixes of palm trees and other types of trees, grass areas and flowerbeds, they look amazing but it set me to wonder how patient must one be to wait for all this plant growing to take place.

They are either planted locally on nurseries first and than transferred on site, or brought already grown from abroad. I heard allot of decorative palm trees actually come from Australia.

A new upcoming project obviously.

It's more about the ugly color and facade "design" than what you see on the roof

Yes of course, but right now there's only plain sand around the building. I can't wait for the day, when it is surrounded by towers and it isn't visible from street level anymore.

In case you wondering what's insane, well check out the same area, different angle, exactly 10 years ago:

Looking at that 10 year old picture makes me wonder if there were any buildings that they had to demolish (like some villa's) in the area that now encompasses Downtown Dubai and Business Bay. I mean, is it just me or can I see some now-gone streets in the left upper corner (where Business Bay is located)? Or was it 100% desert when they started building the downtown and Business Bay? Does anybody know?

Makes you wonder what city that has basically no skyline today might dominate the world in one or two decades

It used to be a military garrison on part of it.

That's Crazy. Hopefully the entire strip from BB to the marina will be like that one day.
If Jumeirah gardens was built it sort of would be.
