Are you sure about that? Did you count building's under construction that could be done before this?

PS This building has the best cladding in Dubai!

It simply sad that you cannot see that a cultural background is a necessity for a desireable city. Have you ever been in Europe or Asia, or even only New York / San Francisco (for example)?

Paying foreign architects and foreign low-income workers with oil money to construct endless lines of hotels and shopping malls will only deliver you a soulless accumulation of buildings, but nothing that is worth mentioning in history books.

I love Dubai, but I think that needs more urban life, must offer more than just tall buildings...

Nope, we have someone who likes to speak the truth, and someone who is too blind to see that.

No matter who's wrong or right: such general discussions might kill any specific construction thread - at least it gets annoying after a while.

Especially if critics don't belong only for the topic's project, but for a city, lifestile or skyscrapers as a whole, they should be posted in Citytalk and Urban Issues or in the Skybar, AFAIK.

Of course the Dubai Creek area around D1 looks mostly like a bleak desert right now, but big developments need time. I bet landscape designers will surely plant greening and help to improve the environment in the wake of the property. And maybe there'll be a vivid neighbourhood in a few years - let's see.

I don't give a flying frak for history books, I want a comfortable life now and this city can provide it to me.

All the rest is insignificant crap spoken by either jelous or primadonnas looking for something to diss upon.



... oh the D1 tower, yes is tall now and not far from topping over. The cladding progresses nicely too.
