Doesn't look like there's room for another building, so probably something like parking lots, little green areas and/or fountains.

the traffic in dubai is already a disaster and more roads don't solve the problem. the solution is not building wider roads, but to provide more reliable public transport. the metro is coming many years too late...

How is the Metro coming many years to late? You build one when you need one, and this is the case with Dubai.

And where did you saw that Dubai's traffic is worse then other metropolis with a very extensive Metro network (being London or NYC). I tell you one thing: It is NOT worse then in those cities, despite the car culture and present lack of a reliable public transportation.

I don't think that the streets in the area of the Tallest block are very small.

They look pretty big and wide to me.

Gettin' her ready. A couple great towers very close to each other, nice. And the in between space I'm sure Dubai will cram in grass every chance they get to make Dubai less of a desert construction site.
