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.
I bloody live in DubaiLand

Suggest you visit area yourself before commenting or addressing me like we have been buddies for years.

Chill this is not about you .. I can't keep this up if you will take this too personal .. and JVC is not Dubailand .. if you live there good for you .. the rest are nothing but villas and upcoming villas.

JVC is 5 min drive from Dubailand. What about odd high rises and half finished highrises in Dubai Science Park, this is just opposite Dubai Hills, what about about odd high rise next to IMG World of Adventure, what about odd high rises in City of Arabia, or whatever it's called. Dubai Hills is practically surrounded by high rises or planned high rises.

This one is being built literally 800 meters away from Dubai Hill sales office: https://www.google.ae/maps/@25.07698...2!8i6656?hl=en

As I've stated, you have probably seen area on the map only.

I think the height indicate it is 13/8 times the height of Burj Khalif,


Or 1346m. That is crazily impressive. This is another level lol.

That's a screenshot I believe from their original processing works video back from September. In other words, at least two months old by now.

The site is just 8km away from the observation deck of the Burj Khalifah. I wonder what a good camera and a tele lens can do....
I just don`t want to take the 2kg Tamron 150-600 with me XD

With 600mm i guess you should roughly see whats going on at the site. I combination with an APS-C Camera it would be even better
