If they do something they would shoot themselves in the feet financially. Let's hope nothing ever happens. Besides which, the Bin Laden group was partially involved in the project so it doesnt make sense.
You're onto 'em.

So none of the Armani Residences shall be delivered in February?

Shall the building and completion of apartments drag into 2011?

Hi all, been following this thread for years now and i thought I would finally start with my first post!

I am picking up my armani residences on the 15/02, I dont think that there will be anymore delays, but i wont find out for sure for another few days yet as they have to give one month notice if the date of home orientation will be changed - I am looking forward to it immensely!!

Are there are any other skyscrapers waiting to pick one up as well?

Wow! Very impressive! Is this for real? Or has it been manipulated in anyway? I don't remember the towers looking quite as dense as that before!

I must say, Dubai looks way more interesting at night (perhaps that's b/c I've seen so many photos of it in the day?)

If i were going up to the observation deck, it'd be at night only:

Ha, and this looks like a cg still background from The Fifth Element or something:
