Totally! I really appreciate the way not everything they're putting in is already mature. Some people may think it looks a bit sparse now, but planting younger plants and letting them aclimate to their location will be much, much better in the long wrong. It'll fill in. No prob.

what are these groups of buildings? Apt buildings I assume. But why are they in the middle of nowhere?

Everything in Dubai is in the middle of nowhere, really.

I'm excited for my first visit to Dubai at the end of January, does anyone know what the estimated date is for the observation deck? Are there any other open observation decks in Dubai?

Hi Andru.
I have nothing official but IMO the observation level will be part of the soft opening on 10 01 04. The lights have been on there at night for weeks now signifying they are working late or around the clock on it.

I was wondering what the black triangles were for also. Recent shots show the features the SZR wing is facing are indeed water features. I agree with some of the earlier posters that the black triangles will be water features as well.
