Where was this image taken from? I do not think it is a park; is it Sheikh Mohammed's palace?

It almost looks like Central Park in New York.

I'm glad to see this tower going up but I hope it doesn't turn out looking like Big Ben....and yes, I know this has been said before. No one wants it to look like Big Ben but I'll have to wait and see the finished project.

How is it not a skyscraper? :S

I do agree that it looks really good, especially together with The Tower, and i hope Al Yaquob will always have a bright, white facade.

Thank you, Stewie1980. Do you have any images of the gardens around the Emirates Towers? If so, can you send me a link to them in a Private Message.

There are no materials, no steel rebars, no cement, nothing.

Everything is in short supply, including the working force and technician specialists.
