Which ones, the ones that looks exactly the same as any other BMU (that's the name), or the ones covered in protective orange wrapping?

The ones covered in protective orange wrapping, they aren't ugly ( how can they look nice anyway ), but they do not bother to eliminate the stuff. So they stand there ugly in sight.

You do realize that:

1. They are the same as the other beneath that wrap
2. It's still under construction and the wrap is there for protection during transport and instalation, and will be removed ..... right?


I mean .... a pointless rant

So I would expect they become less visible when the tower is finished.

Impressive. But, surely there is a lot of space in Dubai... so why are these buildings crammed together like they are in Manhattan?

New York & Chicago have also a lot of space; the driving force behind this kind of buildings is primarily the ambition.

Economics and politics mostly. They can't sell properties to foreigners on already build up or occupied areas, so they venture on free land that the Goverment can manage freely .... and those places aren't exactly mid-town ... not that the vicinity of the Airport and the aproach flight paths would have permited that anyway.
