Sorry for the crappy quality - ripped from youtube.
How old are these? There are no other buildings, malls, highways etc. Everything in the current pictures has been created in that time. Amazing.

thats was my first thought

Imagine how those workers who have been there since the start feel when they look up and realize that they built that thing sitting there

Hi all.

Thanks!

Hi Steve.

Those are the only things I have on the parking. I sent a request to Emaar for all their prints and drawings (and much more) but they were too busy sending out gomers to harass our # 1 photog (Imre) when they should be laying out the welcome mat for all the free advertizing they're getting !!!

Hi Imre.

Great update as always. Sorry to hear about your trouble today. Emaar should be letting all the security guards know to let you inside for unlimited site visits - those bastards !!!

Hi Blizzy.

Great shots. I figure they are approx Nov. '04. I only have 83 pics in my 2004 folder so these are welcome additions. Do you have a link to the youtube vid ?

Hi Fury. The pics were ripped by me from an upload of Dicovery's "Impossible City". Here is the link to part one (of six):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-KG5Ukmyi0

Other parts should be easy enough for you to locate. All the pics were taken from part one. I'm not sure if there is more about BD in the other parts, as I have not watched them yet.

I'm glad to provide something of interest to you

Cheers!
