No, I wasn't talking about the one in Mecca. I was talking about the London Bridge wanabe on SZR. I have a feeling Dubai is going to be like Dallas Texas in the future, big aviation hub but no more tall towers after the boom in the 80's. Very super sad about this.

So should this not be put on hold then? Imre said this was being postponed indefinately so maybe let's move this thread to 'Proposed' section. No biggie, after all.

At first I was insulted, but now I realize you are correct about Dallas.
Probably correct about Dubai, too, although their projects are far more spectacular than anything we ever did here.

I do agree with you. In other cities, all of the supertalls have a "soul" or "personality". In Dubai, since they were all built basically at the same time, and there are just so many of them, they're all "lifeless" in a way. So far, the only exceptions seem to be BD and BAA.

Well, I think that Dubai is a very beautiful city skyscraper wise. I'm very glad that they built the Burj Khalifa, which is a wonder of the modern world. Dubai is now paying the price for being a "trophy regal", full of skyscrapers with minimal demand. Dubai was literaly begging for a reality bubble with it's approach to skyscrapers.

However, in Saudi Arabia we have a mega reality bubble round two comming. Saudi Arabia is experiencing wondrous times since the war in Libya started. This only strengthened their determination to walk in the footsteps of Dubai. The Abraj al Bait might be filled with tourists since Mecca is one of the biggest tourist hubs, but I can't imagine them having any major tenants for the Kingdom Tower. That tower is being built for the same reason for which Burj Khalifa was built ........ simply because it's possible with oil money and the current technology.

^Mecca is not a tourist hub by any means. No one that isn't Muslim can't even enter it. And the Muslims don't come there to take pictures and view the history. They come there to pray.

Like I said, they're aren't coming there to take pictures and view the history. They come to pray. The Abraj Al Bait wasn't built to add to the skyline or anything. It was build because there were so many Muslims coming to pray and didn't have a place to stay.

It did a double take, when I seen it in this section. I'm hoping it doesn't stay here long.
