this is one awesome project! I just wish that the small island in the middle has more 'canals' goin tru it...nevertheless...pretty darn neat. Don't like much Palm Jumeirah...the arrangements and proximity of homes..and the architecture (repetitive) but it is an amazing project.

its over 90m wide but side on its narrow which makes it appear tall. Its definatley approx 40 levels atm, which equates to current height.

the hotel looks like its got 2 more typical floor (33 ) to go before it starts to step back into next 10floor section. so its now 160m tall or half its final height.
cheers
