I see. Also, I didn't know Elite Residence would get a little spire on top, too.

I did not say otherwise, what I meant was that I had never noticed it before.

oh great, here we go again. it's dubai again.

you can't be serious. I'm watching crane operators here in the neighbourhood every day and believe me - those guy up there are doing an outstanding job. considering the strong winds they continue to operate in, day and night, it is amazing there are only those few dents to be honest.

bring any crew from Europe (pay them as much as you want) and they will get so totally schooled from the guys operating the princess tower crane.

remember, this is 400m of cable and damn huge pieces attached to it. now a few dents over the years is abnormal?! give me a break.

You don't have to take it personally. 1 Bryant Park in NYC had numerous accidents during its construction. That's "shoddy construction" in my book too. I realize the working conditions are crap in Dubai, (and elsewhere). Just calling it the way I see it.
