Here's the thing though, in dubai they do have less obstacles than most cities but not none. The nimby problem is non-existant, also tall towers seem to be encouraged wheras in other places they're often discouraged. Developers still have to find financing for their towers though and projects can still get axed because of this

for such a massive tower and an extremely complex design, it's coming along at a nice pace
