so far the governments targets have been exceeded in all fronts. realistically speaking though i would be curious to know if their current forecasts would be met as there are too many factors to consider. the oil price, prosperity in other countries which would dilute dubai's growth, innovation in alternative energy which would reduce oil prices.

still dubai is used to big challenges so i would be watching this one carefully.
Ps: who wants to buy a tower? lol

Nice...but

I like the design...it's so radical!

Though, it looks quite small.
