Fake news!

I dont think its a question that this thing is going to be build, but more how it will look like in lets say 30 or 50 years, when there isnt any more oil and or nobody wants it. It feels like a castle in the sand.

Same for Dubai of course.

This birdseye view shows two direct roads leading to the front of the tower, which makes the argument concourse construction is the reason for the slow progress invalid. The cranes can surely reach out far enough to hoist up materials.

Here is the breakup of 135 Billion AED invested in Dubai's real estate market in 2015. More than 50%, 74 Billion AED, came from non arab investors... and collectively 90 billion AED (67%) came from non GCC investors .... so where is the question of oil money??
