You know how people on forums will sometimes post a message stating how they knew something before someone else who posted before them? It's really annoying. You want to totally cyber-bop them over the head, right?



Well, Percy. I always thought those long black triangular elements on the South East-ish side, adjacent to the lake, would turn out to be fountains.

I knew before you, so there!

If I'm not wrong the military has sandy-beige camo uniforms ... not to mention it's a UAE Federal Army and not local one.

Great updates! I really like the landscaping around Burj Dubai. It turned out way better than I expected. I thought it would be simple like I saw on these renderings.

I hope they will plant more trees, flowers, and bushes on between two ways streets on these pictures. Its look kinda blah but I hope they have plans to make streets beautiful.

It is not that easy. This is a desert. trees are growing in big pots and they are fed through pipes. In some of the photos, trees are dead and dried up as soon as the offices next to it was locked up. The trees in dubai are like pets in your home. If you forget to feed and care for them, they will die. it is an expensive enterprise.

When ever I hear about the population reduction in Dubai, I start to think what will happen to the trees because the trees depend on their waste water.
