Considering how much of Downtown Burj Dubai is still sand plots, it'll be decades till the area really looks anything like the visualisations.

Seriously? You want to start the same dicussion, like the one in the Jeddah Tower thread, on every page?
Take you time and collect some information, how much Dubai and especially this project depend on oil!

I fully agree. Honestly, they should just install an AI on this and Jeddah Tower thread that automatically deletes any post with the word "oil" in it. It really is getting tiresome reading the same stuff about how these projects fully depend on oil blah blah blah etc.

Although there is no details or important things going on in the picture. I would like to share this image with you for the site ( where the white cranes are) taken from the Dubai mall parking roof. I twill be visible in the clear days when it is above the ground. Hope in January it will be the case

What i don’t understand is why Dubai heavily is investing in this (new) project/area when other areas are not even finished?

They could finish Business Bay with this project and putted this tower on BB island. Now i forsee a future with even more empty plots....

Business Bay does not belong to Emaar. Other projects belonging to Emaar - Downtown Burj Dubai, Dubai Hills Estate, Reem, etc. - are indeed being finished.

To make a comparison, Hudson Yards in NYC is progressing very well, and you could ask why Hudson Yards developer Related is not finishing the World Trade Center... Well, it's not their project, simple.

It's just to create buzz and lure new investors by pretty pictures.

Dubai Hill Estate doesn't even have any residents yet (pass it every day by car), how it is being finished? Reem - far from being finished, very very far. What about Dubai South (another Emaar land you have omitted)? Close to finish too?

So do you suggest to build 1300+ tower next to villas and low rise in the projects you mentioned?

"Being finished" and "close to finish" have the same meaning to you? The projects I mentioned are fully under construction without being on hold or sitting idle like Business Bay does. "Being finished" means you'll see a finished project in a foreseeable timeframe. Business Bay likely will be pockmarked with empty desert plots for a very long time.

Dubai Hills? The area is already surrounded by high rise districts or at least some half finished ones. JVC is mixture of villas and high-rises next to it as well. It would at least connect Al Barsha to Dubai Land. Tower could also be nicely aligned against Burj Al Arab. Just saying... Dubai has more than enough half finished or "one tower in the middle of desert" projects already.

Don't judge and you will not be judged.

Also, not quite sure what you are on about?

Relax your point doesn't make any sense ... Plus you really need to visit DubaiLand before stating that "Dubai Hills? The area is already surrounded by high rise districts or at least some half finished ones" lol

The location of the tower currently is 100 times better than it being in DubaiLand aka Villaland. Plus you do know Emaar doesn't own Dubai to pick and choose lands to build on!

Plus the city is 20 years old and its growing extremely fast for that so I am not sure what is triggering you that much.
