How deep is that canal? I've likely got the perspective all wrong but it doesn't look deep enough to house large boats. So just small luxury yachts then?

They say 6 meters. I've been on it's banks a few times but with such a vaste open area around it is very difficult to judge.

Anyone know how far away from the Dubai Towers they will be? I love these, but if Dubai Towers goes u/c, I get the odd feeling Dancing Towers may be out shined if too close.

No, they are not that close. Some 10 km I would estimate.

If there is one tower who will outshine these it is the behemoth called the burj dubai roaring in the background...

Or maybe at least rearranging the towers (maybe rotating towers 2 and 3 by 180 degrees) so that it doesn't look like the towers are standing in order of height.

What do you guys have to say? Nonetheless, this development is by far one of Dubai's best and i'm really looking forward for these towers to rise.

About the elevators: They will go straight up to the top for the side towers. The central Hotel tower will have an elevator shaft going 2/3 up to serve the hotel rooms, and the hotel serviced apartments that are on the floors above, will be served by the lifts on the residential tower (keep in mind that they are joined at the top)

All have been explained before

Part of me wants Dubai to stop building so I can finally visit all the exciting projects completed, but part of me wants them to never stop. What a wonderland.
