I agree the Burj Khalifa is so high it makes the whole area look much smaller than it really is to get a more realistic perspective on the growth of BB you need to be at ground level.

How does Dubai actually "work"?

Where do they get their water from? Desalination? How many people actually live there or are in the city at any given time? How can demand keep up with all these towers?

This thread wasn't even open a year ago and it's rising above its podium already.

Dubai and especially Emaar keeps on surprising us! Even Forte tower which was very recently added to the forum might be now under construction as some members spotted activity on the plot. Of course this needs to be proven with pics but still you never know what Dubai will throw at us next!

And with these and other towers Downtown finally gets it's density which has been shown in the models 10 years ago . Probably even better i think!

Wow! I'm surprised how huge the smaller towers look like from the lake at the last pic!
