what do you mean by "will buy"?

virtually all units have been sold a long time ago. some are available on the secondary market (i.e. re-sale). and very few had been reposessed by the developer due to defaulting investors and are for sale again.

I have yet to meet somebody who has personally experienced the views from the Princess Tower and wasn't impressed.

i was just joking… its nice to see that they could fill the whole building up.

I thought it would be hard for it to sellout since its such a huge project

I see. It is actually quite surprising how easilythese huge developments fill up after handover. The neighboring Torch Tower is filling really quickly. It would be a huge project for a small town, but at the speed Dubai is growing right now these super tall towers are only a small drop to fill. The city is expected to break the 2 Million mark the next couple of weeks.

Imre, why not go easier on the the image compression? You always hurt what could be good shots by inducing those artifacts.

This tower suffers more from it because of its detailed, scattered facade.

There's nothing wrong with Imre's pictures. Are you referring perhaps to those of Princess Tower and myself?

I had to look twice to recognize artifacts on Imre's Dec 09 pics, especially around the crane shaft. But no big deal... what can you expect from a 60 KB foto? PrincessTower's second Dec 06 pic is perfect, but almost 10 times bigger. Normally I'd overlook these details, and just enjoy watching.

PrincessTower's first Dec 06 pic has a reduced color palette, but for the sake of arts, I bet... anything goes. So thanks for sharing to you all!

Btw. the strange reflection on the new crown glass doesn't look like artifacts to me, perhaps there's still a protection foil layer on it.
