This is what the current Freedom Tower looks like, but don't celebrate too soon on it being built, especially when numerous debates kept putting it on hold.

For China, it's Taiwan Strait Tunnel, linking the island to mainland.

That'll be one freakin' HUGE tunnel if it ever gets build. Are these plans serious or just fantasy??

Personally for me in Sweden. The new football stadium i Göteborg. Can't w8 for it to be built, will be finished in 2009. They have had to delay the project becouse of the toally unimportant european championship for field and tracks being arranged by Göteborg, i believe next year, becouse it needs the current stadium as a practice stadium for athletes or something. So they canät start demolishing it before the end of the track and field event .

Maybe it should get built, but not on the site where a worldwide symbol stood.

Like all.

The 400m tower and all that other projects look freaking awesome. I don't know how the last one is a "future" project, but it looks great.

It is normal. Because probably the one you saw was the first one. This one is second or third. Dubai guys are extending their borders with articifial islands
