Thanks for the update, kanye! Progress - but no subfloor walls yet.

The site is fully lit in the dark on the following Marina pano, taken from 48th floor of Marina Heights.

Nothing going on there, just cleaning up after a pipe burst/flooded on the plot.

If I were a skyline planner, I wouldn't position such a bended tower next to a torqued tower, but still, I think the design is pretty.
Does someone know what side the tower is going to bend over to?

BAD NEWS for Damac.

Site began to flood last night. Seems to be under control now. Hopefully the damage won't be too bad.

I have heard that many projects in this area had issues with water at the foundation stages and that DAMAC intentionally flooded it to equalise the water pressures while some work was carried out.
