But besides the weather, Dubai is a great place, and this project might shoot Dubai to the level of an Alpha city.
i was talking about maintenance issues, not the weather itself.

This looks great and all, but I'm still trying to figure out where all of these millions of newcomers are going to come from, and why they would move to Dubai.

People were saying the same about Florida some decades ago.

Right, but Florida wasn't claiming to be building enough business development to employ 5-10 million people in one city, almost all at once.

It took decades, and an entire state larger than all of the UAE.

It's not 5 - 10 million. I think they're expecting the population of the city to double in 10 to 15 years (about 1.5 million). If the population continues to grow at the same rate as now, this should happen. By 2015 they're also hoping to have 15 million tourists a year. Last year it was about 5.5 million and in 2000 it was only half that, so a good few of these towers will be hotels. Also in the business bay project most towers will be around 20 to 30 stories high with only a few really tall ones.

The designs in Dubai are utterly fantastic but I cant help think, overkill. With so many residence highrises, with the islands under construction and an obscene amount of offices, it seems like there will be a lot of vacancies for a while. Unless an entire city basically decides to uproot and move to Dubai. Too much, too fast im afraid. Which is a shame because nearly all of the plans are jaw droppingly spectacular

Dubai's population is growing at 100,000 people per year That is one entire city that decides to uproot and move to Dubai each year . They need to do something to accomidate the rapid growth. Demand is still higher than supply.

Toronto is growing at a similar clip... we accept approximately 100,000 immigrants annually. Granted, we are "booming" with quite a few developments but it's nowhere near the scale of Dubai.. and the Greater Toronto Area is at least three times more populous than Dubai.

I have the same thoughts as Jasonhouse...it boggles the mind.

But not all 100,000 new population could afford those apartments and villas. There are obscenely expensive.
