Anyways I am very much against developing this part of my country! This will affect very negatively the wild life in the creek there! This project needs to be taken somewhere else

Maybe more close to the other developments like Downtown, so that Dubai can have one huge city centre and not 3 big city centres.
I would prefer the Za'abeel area.

Since the the Incheon Towers got a massive height decrease and are more dead than alive this is my new hope

yeah, one of my favorite never built projects.

Concerning Incheon and the previous design. Look at CTBUH's list of tallest buildings from 5 years ago. So much memory coming back of the projects we lost

There's a wildlife protection area planned just next to The Lagoons. Also, they are not going to do huge terraforming or anything. So what's the issue?

Light pollution ... It is built directly next to a wildlife sanctuary, anyways debating about it won't change the outcome that is already decided about the area.

But do flamingos get disturbed by light pollution (not that it isn't present already not far away)?

Not sure if this is already common knowledge or not, but on our flip board was an article (that I cannot link since I'm on phone now), that stated that the twin towers are not planned for the first phase. So before this starts, a few more years have to past.

The first project in that area is already U/C and will be launched for sales on Nov 1. I don't think it's going to take that long before the supertalls start. Maybe 2016

Yes they do get disturbed ... Flamingos have a feeding and sleeping nocturnal routine! Imagine now its 24/7 morning nonstop! This will cause them to stop feeding cz they feed mostly at night to avoid predators while they sleep or bathe during the day!

True that light pollution exists but its quite low and manageable by the birds. Now if they do build the lagoons district which is directly next to the sanctuary ... now this will be an issue.

The thing with this project is that it most prob will be redesigned a million times before they settle on a final one ...

Absolutely nothing changed unfortunately. It is just the quality of the image and the angle of the shadow that manipulates the pic...

There's already one project under construction, consisting of 6 residential towers: Dubai Creek Residences. Emaar is a strong and reliable developer, I believe more projects will follow soon.

The orange color became grey likes concrete. On the other parts, there are no changes.
