At least we want to know what's going on

The site of the whole district is not really located in the city centre, but rather at a highway leading out of it. I guess that many people from Dubai don't even pass the site, because there's no reason to leave Dubai and drive into the desert if you don't intend to go to Al-Ain. Additionally, the site of ''The Tower'' is right in the middle of the district, making it impossible to take closeups of the activity.

Hey everyone,

I created a site plan for better interpretation of the recent google earth update.

The Dubai Municipality has updated their Plot Locator, now showing the circular plaza, surrounding the tower. I created an overlay of this information with the recent Google Earth update and also referenced the image in CAD for exact calculations.

Basically, this is the outcome now:
- The circle is exactly 500meters in diameter (proven through CAD)
- we now know the exact central point of the tower (as shown)
- The mall plot can be seen further down

I also tried to interpret what exactly we are seeing on site now and added descriptions to it. The smaller 50m circle in the centre is basically what will be the tower, the actual size might be different (probably much smaller) but this is the spot we have to focus on now as the tower will rise right there

So now enjoy

Redesigned, with revised dimensions of guy-wires locations. It looked better before... Alas, it was unfeasible like that.

I also tried to design it with () locations of guy wires - it looked like shit. Location )( is not practical, but looks much better, though it was not possible with the dimensions like initially presented.

Mind if I ask what's different? It does appear that this design has substantially more, and smaller, guy-wires compared to the old design. The more horizontal-ish wire elements are still there so that's not changed. It just looks like they had to add the amount of wires in the arcs; about double the amount perhaps? Or is there something else I'm not noticing?

It is not redesigned its only taken from a low angle which makes it look different! I will post some pics I took in cityscape.
