Could be the case. So you meant, it's Burj 2020 that makes you wanna vomit? Rightfully so, if that's what you wanted to say. It's fairly a shitty design, although it made somebody to think some time before he could assemble those shards together.

I can see how the context got lost in that post. Burj 2020 looks like a product of the 1980s early vector graphics era. India Tower is easily one of the top five best never built towers.

I'm surprised the grass is even still alive. Shouldn't it have shriveled up and died in the harsh summer sun? Or is there a permanent moisture source such as groundwater or a leaky pipe in there?

they used to dump sewage in that spot, the groundwater table is probably still very high there so the reeds and shrubs can survive quite well; even in summer as it seems

AltinD has been saying from the start that the chances are so-so due to steel price iirc. Of course nobody wanted to believe him, myself included.

As for I understand

As for I understand (of course certainly not really much), a lot of the stalled/cancelled tasks in Dubai were actually either mostly or even completely domestic. Possibly the workplace market is actually coming back?

It seems the decision makers have just switched their attention to the 1000+m tower.
