Hi all.

C'mon guys - do you think no one has thought about scheduling around the fountain shows ?

Nice update by Joeb.

There is new landscaping features everytime we get shots of the podium. We can see one a couple of levels high being constructed on the office entrance side (on the right side in Joeb's shots. Should be interesting to see it when completed as it is hard to tell what it's gonna look like right now.

The residential entrance side is coming along too but there looks to be alot of work to be done on both of these podiums We can't see the hotel side and haven't got a shot of it in quite some time so not sure of it's progress.

Thanks for the plan @Axel, it was really helpful

btw, the photos you quoted in the previous post @Axel or are little old, or they construct the bridge (below) so fast...

Yes they do construct very fast in Dubai.

Its amazing what can appear over night like a tunnel under the road, or todays experience a brand new road route at defense roundabout.

The Boulevard at the North of the BD has also come on stream and will be one huge junction in this area.

That's nothing. You wait until you see the pictures people take today.

It's the clearest day since about March. Photos will be stunning today.
