So what? Any big project that hasn't gotten as far as foundation work so far probably won't be built.

Yes.

You might consider Las Vegas to have such a skyline along Las Vegas Boulevard.

Also, Phoenix (my home town) has a linear skyline along Central Avenue. While we have a downtown core, there is a spread of high-rises that runs about 4.4 kilometres (2.75 miles) north of downtown. Central Avenue is not as dense as Sheikh Zayed Road (and there are a few buildings which spread out from Central Avenue), but it is a similar phenomenon.

Here are two images (it is kind of hard to actually see the linear skyline, but it is there):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:CentralAvenue.jpg - This is a view looking south down Central Avenue toward Downtown Phoenix.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ph...ArizonaUSA.jpg - This is a view looking north down Central Avenue.

I'm glad that so many like this design, it make me believe that I have a good eye for design after all. Bldg should look amazing. Hope it gets built.
