Yah, this is cool! Almost topped out! Still a ways to go, as a whole, though.

Great photos! This is the first time I've seen the glass on these. Dig the pictures too. Check out the woman sitting at the foot of the bridge in the before picture. Looks like she's posing for a hotel ad...

I'm guessing that half the population of Dubai must go to work in a hardhat right?

gr8 shots!

i think dubai needs to start thinking even bigger along with other middle eastern cities.

dubai should think about having not only fancy projects or other items for leisure like expensive posh hotels. finance, business, trade, science, technology, entertainment, and a unique brand name for itself. then dubai can be much bigger than what it can ever dream of becoming by constructing more and more tall buildings.


maybe a major financial hub? stock exchange? foreign exchange market? centre for higher education, that attracts at least many students from neighbouring nations. this will boost the level of educated population in dubai, and will give rise to more innovative ideas unique to dubai, that dubai can use for making itself a more important city in the world.


but they can only come when it starts to get freedom, of speech, of debate, of religion, and they can not be acquired overnight. gradually slowly it will happen.

i wish to visit this city in the near future. and good luck to dubaians(?).

^ What you are suggesting that Dubai should have, are already taken care off.

You think that everything is just about constructing tall buildings?
