I know all the greenery in Dubai is watered by sewer water..
water pipes under water from the mainlad. the island is about 5-10 meters off the shore on the creek.

Imre,

We're missing Teddy.

At least the fur color is close, but that's probably where the similarities end. At least I hope so, for your sake!

The same company designed a couple of three winged buildings in USA. The first was condo in Chicago. The three winged design gives maximum outside view.
