Thanks for the great update Dubai. I really can't believe the scale of these projects that are going on in Dubai.

As said so many times before. They want to mace sure investments keep coming, to proof the future of the city. Its not about just keeping up with demand, but also to create it. Altough right now it is profitable to build residental projects at the coastline, as people want to live there.

Still, it's very difficult for us to understand why so many people go to Dubai. Where do they come from? What do they do when after they have moved? That's challenging for a stupid European

Wow, incredible, but i wish they had a bit more design to them, they are just clones basically, will age quickly too.
If they were at least given slightly diffrent faceds with diffrent materials, they would look good.

and there are two more special towers which could be the hotel towers. i would say those are the towers which have just yet broken ground.

Holy beejebers, their building a wall to keep out flooding from global warming.

The 2 glass towers look out of place.

IMO the other 40 Towers look out of place while the glass towers look perfect.

agree the glass towers look cool but the other ones look like communist buildings.
