over the years of looking at sites like this and others i have always looked in awe at the projects in dubai and as a site manager by trade i have often thought about upping sticks and moving out there until i read this

http://www.worldtribune.com/worldtri...023611111.html

dubai has cancelled all western tv because IRAN says discussions on democracy will effect its people and so dubai has to stop showing it

shame on you dubai

no-one will come to your pissy little city if you act like this.

huh?

only way I'll believe this is if someone from dubai says it's true






edit: actually that's wrong. Here's what's happening:

Iran has forced the United Arab Emirates of Dubai to halt live Persian-language television broadcasts

not western tv

No, not exactly. All projects which are being built are for investment, making money and so on.

New York doesn't need these projects because they are allready fully developed, and the city is allready very modern.

Dubai won't be better than New York, because New York is a great financial heart for the whole world. It will always leap ahead.

ok sorry persian language channels that show western shows, it's still a stupid idea to back down and if they want international companies to set up there and tourists from all over the world, they wont get them by being told how to run the country by a bunch of nut cases like the iranian goverment

if they do then they really will have to ask themselves who's going to fill these buildings

is this the final design for these towers? the middle one looks almost exactly like the Espirito Santo Plaza in Miami :

Yes we were talking about this in the thread in the UAE forum. maybe it's the same architect.

BTW flo, it's great that you were able to upload this video. It takes lots of work (and frustration since it can get cut off while it's uploading or something). Am downloading it right now and I hope you don't mind me taking some screenshots of my own of parts I find interesting

nevermind nevermind.

also this server is pretty amazing, looks like it is reliable, and fast, upload speed 50kb/s and download also very fast, someone did that 400mb video in just 8minutes.

but total bandwith for a file is 100GB, still this video could be downloaded more than 200 times.

I only noticed now that it's actually an exact copy. This tower suits Dubai but still.
The other two look good though anyway,

The only difference is the curve.
