Opera house is just amaezing Those towers remind me of Chichago Spire. Just more twisted and leaning. Another great project for Dubai

Any ideas when this project moves from being proposed to approved?

Amazing project. I too like the opera house, my favorite individual structure in the model. But its the whole design together that makes it so inspiring.

At the moment they are doing the infrastructure work on the site for the project. I mean the entire project as on the displayed model, not just the towers themselves.

That's great, thank you. Is there a timescale for this stage? Even a guess?

It's difficult to say since the area is a patch of dessert and they have to make the perimeter walls for the island and dig the waterways since the area is near the water but not on the water.

I would guess a year at least, but that doesn't mean they can't start in the meantime.

OMG!! Impressive towers. Well, everything in that project is amazing, but if that four are finally built, theyre gonna be my favourites in the world w/o any doubt.

But i would change the name to something more proper like THE TENTACLES!
