Good update.

Toyota is good, but the amount of investment by Mr. Rain really surprises me.
The lake looks like natural now... But I am not sure I like it this way.

Thx TEKKEN but all 3 towers, The Burj Dubai, Freedom Tower and SWFC, have been redesigned. The diagram is a few years old now however it does help to put things into perspective...

No, it's normal LRT with 2 rails. Monorail is what serves The Palm Jumeirah.

^actually i think you have completely different points, millions upon millions of buildings have SINGLE storey lifts. 30 listed, possibly 100 or 200 total with double decker, makes them rare. So one of the few buildings with double decker lifts is relatively accurate.
