Great pictures! Great construction and cladding process!

Anybody notice how Dubai is gaining all that "character" that people use to complain it lacked in??

I mean going by that pic you can literally tell between the old buildings and the much newer one's albeit they are probably 2 decades apart..

Already its establishing itself as a services/financial hub wonder how it will be when most of the projects complete.

Whats the population of Dubai and with all these buildings coming up will it be a huge mega city like New York?

And those three cranes at the top of The Burj Dubai are like scary.

.
In the lower site I saw cladding the Old Town side ( 2 teams) and the SZR side.
The Doha Street side has some preparing works but I think cladding will be starting soon.

this is that side:
