Wow! The cluster looks way more complete without that gap next to Infinity Tower. But it'll really be Pentominium that steals the show, I'd say.

Nope. Somebody in the regional forum posted, that he contacted TAV. They said, that the crown will be build soon.

"Soon" is a dangerous word. I'd feel more happy if they'd mention a specific date.

Does it matter? Like 80% of the things I own were made by Asians that are being taken advantage of.

It seems odd to point out because currently that's how the majority of the planet operates.

South Asian labourers depend on the money they get for working in Dubai. The money they earn is sent to homeland as remittance, and is a great source of forex reserve. In Dubai they work in far better condition than they do in their own countries. Dubai is actually helping those poor people by providing them with employment. European and American cities don't take labour from developing nations, so Dubai is actually doing a good work for the poor people in South Asia

Everyone in labour gets "robbed" by the employer. Some more, some less. This is how capitalism works...
