About the landscaping, the have build little dams now between the lake that has already been filled and the new lake. How are they going to remove those dams? Fill the new lake and fish them out? Or drain the old lake (giving them a chance to properly clean it :P ) and then take them out? I asume they have to do some ground work onderneath those dams as well.

Ohwell, maybe not all that interesting compared to the BD itselve, but I was just wondering

Wow wow amazing photos Imre, which let in so that you once again to the tower, it looks very interesting mechanism of the BMU is interesting to see in what way will use every balcony and the garden looks good, everything starts slowly to look and reflect the great effort made in the tower
Hope to see more photos

Looks almost mythical in them shots... almost like that city is fake, and forced - it hasn't developed naturally. Oh wait, it hasn't.

WTF are you talking about ?
Exactly how do you "fake" or "force" a city ?
How does a city develop "unnaturally" ?

Back OT
There is still a few cladding panels to be installed on the office annex. It's roofing system is coming along and I like the window awnings.
The wind protection looks good on the terraces. There is still some to be done yet no doubt but the glass panels are an interesting idea.
Landscaping is looking good but there is a ways to go yet.

Without wanting to start a war of words and page consuming debate, I was putting it simply that the skyline there looks like it was been constructed almost spontaneously. There's a row of tall buildings with Burj as the pinnacle and yet in the foreground it's just a vast expanse of empty land.

It has developed unnaturally in that Dubai is very much now the product of unimaginable amounts of investment in the hope that there is enough demand globally to support what is being constructed. Natural growth in my opinion is one that has grown as the needs of the population have developed and the various operating systems within it's core appreciate this.
