Sorry to get back off-topic, but there is no way that these pictures were taken in the early 1990's!

Neither the 1991, 1992 or 1999 pictures are dated corectly. The first two were said to have been from mid '80s while the third one is from 1998.

When I first came in Dubai in Nov. 99 I was seeing the Emirates Towers from my Hotel (just lesft of the place from where the pic was taken), and they were topped out with mostly the spires remaining. The towers opened before summer the next year.

BTW it was cool this evening to see only some 300 meters of Burj Dubai and the rest totally obstructed as it was cut off by the clowds.

I have been telling everyone that there is no way such pictures are dated correctly, but everyone just assumes they are true. I still remember back in 1993 going home from the airport and seeing the first interchange, SZR had at least 3 or 4 lanes then, also, the old Safeway shop was where Thunder Bowl is (Or was, even that closed), and my family has been going grocery shopping there for as long as I rememmeber, probably early 199os, there were roads leading to it obviously (Proper ones, not ones dug in the sand or whatever). Small details, but hey, don't believe everything people say, including me

At least you can get rid of him. Quite soon actually.

The other one will just kill you if you try to get rid of him.


Funny you mentioned inbred, but you pointed the wrong man there too.

The guy I'd trust is the one on the left, cause if I don't like him I could vote him out or he'll go after 8 years. The guy on the right....well that's the guy I wouldn't trust.

I would hope Tumbling Dice can get it together and post about the Burj Dubai and NOT world politics.

At this point I can't wait to see how tall this building gets. I feel it will be a tall surprise at the end. Taller than 819m.

Nakheel , but I am sure this model will include the Burj Dubai as well


Nakheel to reveal plans for new era of waterfront development at TDIM 2008

Dubai, 14 January 2008: Nakheel, one of the world’s largest privately-held property developers, will showcase plans for its new era of waterfront development at this year’s TDIM 2008 (Tourism Development project & Investment Market), a new exhibition taking place at Dubai World Trade Centre on 20th to 22nd January.

Nakheel will play a key role in the first ever TDIM exhibition with the largest stand in the company’s history, which is approximately the same size as three Olympic swimming pools. A number of new developments will be revealed in exciting shows talking place in two large domes situated within the stand. Nakheel will also unveil a 13 metre-long scale model of Dubai with an updated show, detailing the role the waterfront has played in the growth of Dubai and the major role Nakheel has played in this.

Each of Nakheel’s waterfront projects will be displayed at the exhibition, including the latest addition to Nakheel’s diverse portfolio of projects, Dubai Promenade. A model of the recently launched waterfront community is set to be revealed, which will allow visitors to see how Dubai Promenade will create a virtual peninsula along the emirate’s shoreline anchored by a spectacular five-star wheel-shaped hotel.
(Nakheel)

just for interesting, Cityscape 2007, Nakheel:
