I think when the word gets out, the whole world would like to go there. Now Egypt and Turkey are becoming risky to go to for a holiday, lots of people will instead visit the Emirates, or more specifically, Dubai.

I personally have never been to the Dubai ski. Always way too crowded and living in Abu Dhabi im too lazy to go down during the week days, and now that i have a kid, i would love to take him.

What i am trying to say is, with this new slope , let all the crowds go there and leave the MOE one for me and my son (AKA, AD people)

Now I finally realized, that the development will integrate Damac Towers By Paramount perfectly in the city. Since the construction start of the project I wow bothered about the location. I felt like it was a shame, that these beautiful towers are not closer to the city center. Fortunately, this problem will belong to the past very soon!

I'm really excited to see how this would look in the skyline with the Burj Khalifa.

I have to wonder how well this design did in the wind tunnel test. I mean straight up 700 meters with no rounded corners or setbacks. Well what do I know; but just saying!

I remember when I saw a documentary about the construction of Burj Khalifa (in 2010), where they explained why they have chosen this shape. They said, if they would build a straight box as high as Burj Khalifa, or at least similar tall, it would immediately collapse because of the oscillation caused by the wind...Well, technology evolves

That must have been a big leap they found to build this tower then.

The three Sky Gardens located up the tower will probably allow wind to flow through which will surely minimize the wind effects somewhat, but then again this tower might not even be the final design and just a placeholder. Who knows?

It's going to be interesting to see how they're going to build sky gardens with the wind blowing through at 400+ meters up.

Cityscape 2015


according to the model it looks like the tower in front of it might be a supertall as well.

I think the tower on its own looks really nice, but I really dislike these 'complexes' of skyscrapers. Almost like self contained communities - divided by roads and empty patches of land.

I wonder how long it's going to take until you end up in the brig. Surely not that long, judging by all your troll posts.
