That is because the whole area is under construction. They will have more towers in the empty spaces. Don't expect to see anything in these spaces for some time.

Hi all.

Even insignificant images to the general public, like the ones fury is interest in.

Sorry..
what are you saying 234 ?
All my pics are carefully scrutinized for their quality ... - all 48,000 of 'em ...
And don't lump me in with the general public either ...

I find it a little bizaar that after one leaves the Pega hoist at its top stop on section 18B (stairs and landings can also be taken to get to 18B) that a ladder must be negotiated to get to section 19. As one ascends above that there are stairs and landings to tier 21. I can see no reason to make the workers use a ladder for that one section.

Gerald has won comps for his photos, international publications use imre, I do it as a thing as I moderate the UAE section.

Legally copyright is when you press click of the shutter, watermarks are secondary line of copyright.
Thanks much, Bro!

Who will occupy all those towers? The locals or expats or tourists?

I think it will be a very long time before we see any scraper built that would be taller.

I think all three. Current projections for Dubai population in the year 2020 are expected to be around 3 million people. The last two decades, Dubai has seen doubling in growth.
