Honestly, I would pick the mansion...I can' resist to Cube Villas and this one is even on the tip of the palm! The apartment is amazing too, no doubt, but it can't replace a 500sqm mansion with a private 280* private beach and a pool with a garden.

Well if I have the money to buy a Villa on the palm I will definitely have some more to buy me a second home in 101! Why decide between 2 awesome choices when I can get them both

from this close you can see the actually crown inside the scaffolding. Its going to look amazing. This crown is around 115 feet I would say and it really adds alot to the tower

Wouldn't it be incredible if someday, say in a hundred or two hundred years, that that whole gap was filled in with skyscrapers?

It looks like some opaque material will be used to clad the crown. You can clearly see these typical protection layers they use for these materials. I would be highly surprised if this was glass.
But this crown just has be be clad with glass...

I would love to be able to go 100 years into the future and see the skylines of major cities like dubai. I wish I could just order construction on hundreds of glass megatall skyscrapers for the area spanning BB to DM

Well I'm young enough to see Dubai in at least more than 70 years The life expectancy of my generation is between 90-100 years.

I'm skeptical about how long Dubai can keep building skyscrapers.

And don't you guys care at all about who lives in those homes? Or what history lies on some of that land?

with steady cash flow and with a steady rate of growth Dubai will continue to grow for decades much like New York has. More people will move to dubai and more business's will move to Dubai meaning more jobs that will bring more people and the cycle will continue. Also the owners of the houses would probably be happy that sksycrapers are being built around them because of the increased property cost. In which they could sell there house for a tremendous cost so a company like Emaar can build a skyscraper and then they can move and buy a larger and nicer house some where else.
