Thanks for the great job Dubaiflo!

Are all the shown projects still u/c or are there any projects on the launch?

No i doubt it would be the size of 80 Manhattans,

I think Palm Deira is close to the size of one Manhattan and if you compare the size of Palm Deira to Duba Land, I'd say you could fit around 4 Palm Deira's in there.

Based on several articles, I'd guess fall.

Absolutely crazy looking at it as an aussie. Absolutely no safe working conditions. No scaffold or support barriers at the windows.

I'd definatly never work on a building like that without safe working conditions.

yes, at proposed height of 808m (latest quoted height), BurjD will not only be tallest skyscraper (300m higher then current title holder-508m taipei 101), it will also be tallest free standing structure and tallest man made object.
You can see how it compares with 40 or so of tallest bldgs in world in my construction diagrams updates, but they are missing most current bldgs over 300m. So what ive been working on lately is a worlds tallest skyscrapers over 300m 2010! there wil be about 100 skyscrapers!
ill let everyone know when it gets closer to posting. its a big job.lol
im wondering if i should add Fordham spire and Moscows tower? both 610m.
Burj Dubai will still be 200m clear of nearest rival.

Without going into details, I'll just say that you don't know what you're talking about.

The insider news is that the building that used to be called Fordham Spire, now known simply as 400 N Lake Shore Drive, is moving ahead under the new owner. Financing seems to be falling into place.

I heard Palm Deira will be delayed by 5 years due to construction problems. There is something wrong with the sea bed in that area of the coast or something. Definitly not good when I'm planning to move to Dubai for a couple of years in 2017 (thats when Dubailand finishes and Burj Dubai definitly will be)

I believe the Palm Deira will be delayed 10 years due to financial issues and because it is so massive and can affect the ecological life in the sea..........

The investors were compensated either money or to invest in any of Nakheel's Projects.......... unless they decided to wait 10 years ......

^yeah i dont think anyone realises just how tall BurjD is going to be. I mean were not talking 500m or 600m or even 700m but 800m high!!
Im wondering how altinD and others will take core closeups when it hits fl160 lol. or even construction of spire 700m up! we might have to reply on bulliten board at front of site.-
--------
to ponder-
Has anyone ever been on roof of a 400m high bldg/tower? just imagine looking up from there at another 400m further!!!
should be intresting.
------
just on those large diagrams. cant really tell size because the actual diagram is too big for page. better off with smaller pic so you can see all of it at once.
