true, interesting question, they are obviously pooring concrete there, so the top of the steel structure in current time could be similar to this view????
AMAZING, the BDLHotel is like a cute fuzzy miniature

Sky, nice to see you back, how come you are so succesful?? I tried to be rich, but naahh, wouldnīt happen - but I can still make things up and brag about me being frigg'n awesome

this grollo tower or what you called it was only designed to be something over 600m,. So you are telling us they have heightened the mighty AlBurj?? good to have an informer on our forum

One of many 'pie in the sky' projects that probably wont see the light of day....but in Dubai, who knows?

Thanks OTR, I knew the diagram was about 3 years old but it was all I could find at short notice. Lightening quick for jaja3000jaja and he goes and logs off....typical!
Thanks you!!!

I'm a Venture Capitalist, I own and run companies in various sectors.
Nine subsidiaries to my company with currently 26 facets, all working in unison:

International Business Development - My HQ, where I integrate the following ventures.

Technology - Research, Collaboration, Future Tech Development, 4G, MIMO, HSDPA's, iBurst, Wi-Bro, Rebranding Desktop P.C's, Laptops, Smartphones etc...

Media - Film Production, VT Editing, 3D Design, Animation, Post Production, Online Advertising.

Studios - Web development, Programming, Business Platforms, Gaming, Hosting, Web Marketing

Travel - Package Holidays, Late Deals - Travel Worldwide & Digital trip contains 35 travel websites maintained by my design studios.

Money - Credit Cards, Loans, Mortgages, Bankruptcy, IVA's, Debt Management etc

Music - So far only "Resonate"...kinda like a cross between iTunes & MySpace, a place for groups and musicians to manage and upload their songs for others to download.

Records - Currently two labels for signed artists and new talent.

Properties - Dubai, Burj Dubai (59th floor shared equity release), Dubai Mega Projects (my passion)

Strangely, to guarantee I got the Nakheel contract...I was 3 of the 5 possible vendors!
Also, I'm developing it at a loss....but what I lose on one hand...I gain in the other...if you know what I mean?

Oh.

@skytower: back again ? With your 50million$ in cash, 23 joint ventures, 16 cars and 3 helicopters.

Man !


Amusingly you always happen to come with an alter ego, oh so lovely is the last !


From some netherlandese youngster, only the v remained, and the passion for linguistic artifacts. A la Wachovsky.


Not that bad. So welcome back, my friend at last .
