Is that from Google Earth 2008? Did you have to pay for that software?

It's a free software from Google:


http://earth.google.com/intl/en/

Download free version, install and enjoy. Featuring 3D modelling of a lot of buildings too.

Great update! Now I am 50:50 on whether they can complete the cladding before the game. I surely hope they can!

Hi! new here after a 2 years lurking....Please forgive my english
I like a lot the fact that this building will have glass on every faces (including roof and sky bridge). That's nice!
And I hope that the glazing will be more reflective ... Is there a film or something on glass that they'll remove when completed?

Great performance....First building of a new skyscraper era!

and we should give this new era a name, maybe 'As-long-as-U-got-dow-any thing-is-buildable-era', first started from Beijing, promoted and developed in Dubai.
