Thanks for the effort...and no one paid you to do it.

Do you think it's realistic to keep all those projects in the diagram?...it's getting a little cluttered...and plus many of those buildings aren't gonna get off the ground any time soon.

Excellent stuff once again.

Only ammendment I can think of is I believe the core on Burj Dubai Lake Hotel has started to rise. It's visible in one of the aerial shots, I shall try to find it for you.

almas' core should be level 2 indeed.

most of the dubai towers are indeed at ground work now.


here is another one of almas, but this is more than a month old.

here is another aerial which is also more than a month old but maybe you can spot the cranes:

I think it'll be the perfect complement to the Burj, to really help put it in perspective how tall it will be. Good planning!

It's amazing that a 33 year-old building still has the highest useable floors. But maybe not for much longer.
