Really impressive number of towers, but except fot the ones in glass and most other Dubai projects they look a bit too common and similar to each other.

similar or not, it's just impressive. And on the other hand, many projects in Dubai have different designs and that's amazing when you see the number of projects...

I am told there will be two floors of 'entertainment' and shops throughout the 40 tower complex. Is this true? There must be 100s of shops popping up then! Nice! The marina will no longer be boring! Now if they would decide the shops can sell alcohol as well we have a tourist destination.

If they decide Coffee and Tea is the only way to go, the buildings will not be a tourist destination for westeners at all... The key to a good holiday destination is relatively cheap drinks....

You are right I think. But I find that quite depressing. Most people seem to think you need alcohol to have a good time and a holiday - I find that quite a sad reflection of peoples attitudes in the west.

LOL nice pic:
what's your new signature , tell us!!!

edit:




here another update by al million,
taken from 40th floor of marina heights tower (207m UC),
next to the "tallest block on the planet (UC and app);
see the marina in front (about 100 highrises UC and approved) , Jumeirah lake towers , 80 towers 35F-45F and a supertall on the left,
on the very right JBR with al fattan twins, 245m.

of course this is all construction area, everything will be green etc once completed. the parts done are already landscaped.

it does.
btw the 2nd picture was taken by DUBAI, and see how it has grown since august.



ok sorry this is sooo off topic but it shows all the people out there that Dubai does NOT depend on oil!! and i am sooo glad smussuw found this that i wanted to show it everywhere


[IMG]http://************/dqro9k.jpg[/IMG]

i hope this all satisfies the people who say.. uh if the oil runs out...
