Nice skyline, but are there people in those nice expensive buildings? Are there many empty offices, apartments, hotels & malls?

It will take longer than 6 years... more like 8. And I doubt it will start this year.

So is safe to say that this decade won't loose the title.

i said earliest and i know that it will probably take longer. i wouldn't be too sure about this decade though. Because who knows what projects come up in the next time. But i gotta agree that it is likely to not have one this decade

I want to see pictures of people walking on the sidewalks next to skyscrapers. Whenever we get pictures of this area, it makes it look like the whole city is empty. And public events like concerts, etc don't count.
