Well, it doesn't have to be the same developer..

But if somebody is planning something new (in a few years, when there is new demand hopefully), it should definately be cheaper to proceed with this one instead of starting something completely new. Of course they can change the design/height to make it cheaper though.

Did he say it was dense? No! He was talking about the amount of buildings and the variations of architecture.

Trident partner and family already left the country a while ago (more than 2 months). Currently in North America. Don't hold your breath for this tower.

What do you mean, the concrete structure is the Pentominium, maybe you mean the Al Seef tower in the foreground.

I personally think Dubai's architecture is far superior and more interesting than NYC's sprawling boxy mess

New York is the least "sprawling" city on the planet, it's right up there with Hong Kong and Tokyo as the densest urban area there is. There are a lot of boxes but also good looking towers as well, and old ones.

Dubai is more like Los Angeles, granted with more tall buildings but still less athsetically pleasing IMO. Very tacky.

You mean NY City, right? otherwise your statement is incorrect... The NY Metropolitan area sprawls much more than LA.

One day, Dubai will have the most skyscrapers. Every skyscraper has special form.

I really don't think so, remember what happened when Dubai crashed a few years ago. It's absurd to build all of these buildings with out any demand, at least in China they have a billion or so people who could eventually occupy them.
