^ So you're saying Abu Dhabi is a Dubai wannabe? I heard that emirate has its own vision for their cities, not neccessarily similar to Dubai's. Can you elaborate since you are a local ctizen

No such thing as Dubai wanna be, its all about investment opportunities that are appearing in many parts of the world. Abu Dhabi has its own identity which includes a strategy not to go very fast and take things easy a bit.
I would say Abu Dhabi is at least 10 times wealthier than Dubai because of the oil revenues( probably one of the richest citis in the world by far), therefore Dubai is constrating on other sources of income to flourish, such as business and tourism. I really think many of the big projects in Abu Dhabi is just kindda message to others that we can do it too if we want to, which really they can! but many in Abu Dhabi dont want their city to be like Dubai!
Other emirates parts such Sharjah and Ajman, They are very close to Dubai, so the investment craves expanded to reach them as well.
Our region is very vital but if you take it from area and population wise its really small. So the effect of the booming economy will show clearly in all parts of the Gulf region: Saudi qatar bahrain Kwuait and so on.
The only difference I would say is that Dubai took 20 steps ahead...thats all!

Hey I really like this project but from my point of view it is in the wrong location it destroys a bit the specalty of the Emirates Palace.
But the total project looks awsome

I love the glass. From the distance it almost looks seamless.
