Great angle on the tallest block Imre. Now we can get an idea how dense it will look like.

DOnt be afraid! Its only under construction and the cladding protection foil looks a little bit scary!

Nice to see this huge progress in one month:
at the beginning of dec 08 ->26 floors
now: 31->floors

Arabtec is the best!

As the height continues to grow, the curvature of the building is becoming more pronounced. This could be a great looking building when finished.

How expensive would it be to live in a tower like this? Dubai looks like an amazing place to live in, especially now with all the action going on with the new skyscrapers.

Maybe you have seen the prices for the designer's penthouses.

So in general Dubai is fairly expensive to live in or is it just the housing thats expensive? Like if you were to go to the store to buy food or clothes, would that be more expensive than say somewhere like in the US or Canada?

It's a common knowledge that the prices of consumer goods in North America are cheap. However it's not easy to answer your question.
