Hopefully, lets just hope the wall doesn't fail when it's been fixed and there is work underway with people working on the groundwork. If it all caved in god knows what might happen. Lets just hope it doesn't happen and there are no more problems.

It turned out that that was not so good news. After APCC made the Dubai marina a little bigger

Nature didnt like the design, just like me, and made sure to show them what it thinks about having that tower erected amongst it. Hehe, enough of the superstition :P.

Anyhow bad publicity and of course a setback timewise for the project. I guess its sold out but otherwise id advise a relaunch (and with a new design thanks).

I think it will be 2012 when the tower is finished...Are other towers not in the same danger like the infinity? I hope so....

Once the building is already in place the problem doesnt persist anymore.
