the boring, e.g towers looking all the same, part is Jumeirah Beach Residence which is one single beachfront project.

According to the Khaleej Time the thing around six degrees bent on a base to sit - so the appearance is to resemble one iPod in the Dockingstation. Altogether 23 floors are to offer place for 200 housing units. According to the clients “iPad” the baptized building is to reflect the exclusive life-style, the Dubai offers and accordingly not for the broad mass to be meant. Asia Connection At least when planning one deliberates oneself the roots iPod and employs a Honk Konger architect's office with the organization of the multistoried building - the musicplayer is manufactured in China. Already in the next year one wants to begin with the construction, which is opening for 2009 planned. Pictures to the unusual project were released still none.

Nope this is all built using money from foreign investors. Most of everything that is proposed or under development sold to foreign investors within a few hours.

I suspect the oil revenues underpin and act as guarantur, and maybe to initialise the whole vision a decade ago, but that is it. Dubai is being built using British, American, Indian and Chinese money. Now that is cool

I am sure they are quite interconnected in terms of design , and financing, etc. After all Arabs have a very long history of trade with China, being the major players in what is now canton and what was chinas greatest port (according to Ibn battu) Quangzhou from the 8th century

Very true. And guess where much of that foreign investment comes from. The Middle East. Guess where the ME gets the bulk of its money. Oil.
